Measures to help control infection for international students

To manage the risk of infectious diseases at the Institute, international students
(including those from other domestic universities, technical colleges, and Japanese
language schools) who have passed the entrance exam, are urged to submit a
health certificate signed by a physician in the last three months before enrollment.

Application for COE

The Institute will apply on behalf of successful applicants for a Certificate of
Eligibility (COE) after the examination results are released. There may be cases,
however, where the COE application is rejected by the Immigration Services
Agency of Japan. Those without a COE will not be permitted to enter Japan, and
will be dismissed or withdrawn from the Institute if they have already completed
the enrollment procedure. In addition, enrollment and tuition fees will not be
refunded under any circumstances. As such, it is highly advisable that successful
applicants who fail to obtain a COE before the enrollment procedure takes place
apply for a postponement of payment of those fees.
