General Entrance Examination, Special selection for applicants with overseas education

The Graduate School of Frontier Sciences holds entrance examinations twice a year, in summer and winter. Students select a desired faculty member and Department, who will provide research guidance during their program, and take the entrance examination conducted by that Department. Some Departments and programs hold the entrance examination only once a year. Please carefully check the entrance examination schedule for each department and your desired admission period before deciding when to take the examinations. We recommend that you participate in the entrance examination information sessions held by each department.
