Eligibility

  • What is the Individual Assessment of Admission Eligibility?

    It's a screening procedure conducted by each department to assess the eligibility of individuals wishing to apply for a master's or doctoral degree program. Individuals who have not completed (or are not expected to complete) a bachelor's degree program or master's program may be deemed eligible to apply if they meet certain requirements. Holders of a bachelor's or master's degree (or expected holders) do not need to request the Individual Assessment of Admission Eligibility. For details, please refer to the eligibility criteria set for each program.

  • Although I am expected to, I have not actually graduated or obtained a degree yet. Am I eligible to apply for IGP?

    If you graduate with a degree before the intended program starts, you will be eligible. Please submit an original certificate of expected graduation and degree.

  • I am currently living in Japan. Am I eligible to apply for IGP(A)?

    No, you are not eligible. If you are temporarily living in Japan (as an exchange student, for example), your application may be accepted. Please contact the Admissions Division before applying. Domestic applications are only accepted for IGP(C).

  • I am a Japanese citizen. Am I eligible to apply for IGP?

    Japanese citizens not residing in Japan who satisfy the eligibility criteria for each IGP and who hold a visa* that enables them to stay for a long period in the country where they live may apply for this program. Applicants who are Japanese citizens should consult the Admissions Division before applying.

    * Permanent residence, student visa, work visa, etc. (Working holiday visas, tourist visas, short-term stay visas, etc. are not accepted when applying for this program.)
