Details of the academic and English language requirements for your course are on our course finder. We help many students from Japan to improve their qualifications to meet entry requirements.
We require students taking the Kotogakko Sotsugyo Shomeisho (Upper Secondary School Leaving Certificate) to take and successfully complete an international foundation year or equivalent.
Students with relevant diplomas and HNDs may be considered for advanced entry on a case-by-case basis, subject to admissions assessment.
We require applicants to hold either a bachelor degree (Gakushi) with a high GPA or a master’s degree (Shushi) from a prestigious Japanese university.
