Guidelines for Applicants

The master course of Graduate School of Human and Socio-Environmental studies is under discussion with the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology on the change of admission capacity. Therefore, we cannot publish the application guidelines for enrollment in April 2018 at this time. We will inform you again when publication becomes possible.

Please be aware that the first period application (entrance examinations will be held in July) will not be carried out in the same way as before.

※ Application for students enrolling in October this year will be conducted as before
