Foreign student admission
Entrance Examination (International Students)
We offer non-conflicting exam schedules, and various routes of admission.
To encourage diversity in our student body, we offer several different ways to apply: (a) general entrance examination, offered on three occasions; (b) consideration of recommended applications; and (c) consideration of foreign students or returnees. You may select the scheduling and approach that best suit your needs.
General entrance examination
The general entrance exam combines grades from the National Center for University Examinations with original examinations intended to further test the applicant's abilities and suitability. We offer an independent testing schedule (Schedule A, Schedule B, and Schedule C), with three different sessions per year. These schedules do not interfere with those of other national and public schools, or the middle session exams of other public universities.
Students recommended by their school principal are further assessed through essays and interviews, and are judged based on character and academic ability. Of those accepted, two-thirds shall be graduates of schools within Niigata Prefecture.
Admission of Foreign Applicants and Returnees
We welcome applicants who have already developed an international perspective by living within other cultures. These applicants shall be interviewed, and are judged based on their character and academic ability.
