Overview and Varieties of Entrance Exam

Our school has three kinds of entrance exam: there is a Recommendation Entrance Exam and a General Entrance Exam for our two-year graduate program as well as a separate exam for our one-year Instensive Course for Persons with Work Experience. Here, the Intensive Course for People with Work Experience is geared towards people engaged in groundbreaking research or development and those who have made achievements in their careers or in the creation of artistic or technological works. In this course, a curriculum that usually takes two years is condensed to one year under the condition that students proceed with their research based on their previous accomplishments.
