2. Application Procedures and Criteria for Selection of Applicants

 Research Students, students who take guidance from the advising faculty member, receive no credits or degrees. Because the examination is carried out through screening in an interview and judging of submitted documents, applicants must already have received permission from a faculty member in regard to their research theme, research plan and Japanese language proficiency. Those wishing to apply for research student status should contact the following reference for admission as early as possible.
 Admission is at the beginning of the semester in April or in October, though admission may be granted at other times in special circumstances.

3. Admission for Non-degree Students Programs

 Permission may also be granted to enroll in one or more courses as non-degree students in our undergraduate or graduate programs after screening of application documents. Please contact us for more information.
