Admissions Assessment Policy
- Admission by Recommendation
"Admission by Recommendation requires" a formal recommendation from a high school principal or person of similar status. Documents, such as the candidate's school record, submitted as part of the application, and an interview will be used to assess how well the candidate satisfies our "Fundamental Qualities for Prospective Students." Submitted documents, rather than the interview, will be used primarily as a source of information when evaluating the candidate's performance during high school. In particular, these documents will be used to assess the candidate's academic achievements and records of extracurricular activities during high school. The interview will be used to assess the candidate's motivation for applying to our degree program, objectives and goals while at university and long-term goals. All candidates will be interviewed individually by a panel of interviewers.
- AO (Admissions Office) Entrance Examination
Documents, such as the candidate's school record, submitted as part of the application, and an interview will be used to assess how well the candidate satisfies our "Fundamental Qualities for Prospective Students." The interview, rather than submitted documents, will be used primarily as a source of information when evaluating the candidate's motivation post admission. In the interview part of the "AO Entrance Examination," candidates are required to give a three-minute self-promotional speech. In addition to this interview, candidates applying for a scholarship will be required to make a presentation on a specified theme as part of their "Presentation-style AO Entrance Examination." These presentations will be evaluated on the clarity and eloquence of the candidate's language, how well the candidate understood the theme, techniques used during the presentation, responses to questions about the presentation, and time management.
- General Entrance Examination and National Center Test Utilizing Examination
Candidates will be assessed for admission to our undergraduate degree program based on an evaluation of skills and knowledge (cognitive competence, Japanese reading comprehension, foreign language aptitude, mathematical ability, and general knowledge) we consider fundamental to our program. The range and scope of questions on the "General Entrance Examination" conform to content covered in high school. Questions are intended to assess how well candidates understood content covered in high school. As part of our "Comprehensive Evaluation Entrance Examination," in addition to an examination designed to test scholastic ability, documents, such as candidates' school records, submitted as part of the application, will be used to assess comprehensively their academic achievements and records of extracurricular activities during high school. Candidates who excel in the entrance examination designed to test scholastic ability will be eligible for a scholarship.
