Congratulations on your success in admission to GSAPS, Waseda University.
Please check the following information necessary and important for enrollment in September, by clicking each link below.
If you have any inquiries, please feel free to contact us ([email protected]).
Orientation for International Students
For International Students who newly enter Japan
Certificate of Eligibility (COE)
For those who asked GSAPS to apply for COE as their proxy,
GSAPS Admissions Office will dispatch the COE together with Certificate of Admission(COA), as soon as we receive COE from the Immigration Bureau.
However, as we informed you in the “Guide to Entrance Procedures”, Japanese government’s countermeasures toward COVID-19 has made a big impact toward inspection for COE application and COE issuance.
Please understand that we cannot answer any inquires about issue timing of COE at this moment, because it is all controlled by Japanese government/Immigration Bureau.
Therefore, please wait for our notice as we will let you know as soon as we get the updated information.
We appreciate your understanding and patience in advance.
Please click here for how/what to do after receiving COE.
When you submit a photocopy of “Residence Card” to GSAPS office, please paste it on the Status of Residence Notification Form.
Part-time work permit
For International students who already reside in Japan
Extension of period of stay/Change of status of residence
If you need to extend the period of stay or change the status of residence, please visit the Center for International Education (CIE) with “Certificate of Admission” sent in August and “Letter of Admission” issued as evidence of passing the final screening, and complete the necessary procedures. You can apply from 3 months prior to the expiration date on your residence card. For the necessary documents and detailed procedure, please click below and check the webpages of CIE.
