Graduate School Entrance Examinations
Applicants must take the examination held by the graduate school. Each graduate school conducts its own examination once or twice a year, in summer and winter. In most cases, applicants first enroll in the school as a research student in preparation for the exam and involve themselves in research activities. Therefore, applicants need not only academic ability, but also the financial means whereby they can continue as research students until they are allowed to enroll. It goes without saying that if an applicant should fail to pass the entrance exam, s/he will have no choice other than to return home.
