Undergraduate Schools

Under the Ideal of Education “Independence of Learning”,  Waseda University accepts a large number of highly motivated students with “enterprising spirits”, the Waseda’s motto,  having a high level of academic competences as well as full of intellectual curiosity from not only Japan but also around the world.

School of Advanced Science and Engineering, aiming to develop cutting edge technology based on natural sciences and to create new academic field, in order to foster individuals with capability to deploy leadingly ‘Intelligence’ ‘Ability’ and ‘Skill’ of 21st century, seeks students at admission who retain academic competences in their high school educations, and eagerly apply them through logical thinking. Since the school has especially advanced globalization, it is preferable for students to have high English proficiency which enables them to interact with various other students who had learned in diverse cultures and education systems.

English-based programs are offered at Departments with ◯ in the box of International Program as shown in the chart below.

Graduate Schools and Departments

In accordance with our educational ideal of independence of scholarship, Waseda University accepts a large number of highly motivated students from not only Japan but also around the world, who embody the Waseda philosophy of having an enterprising spirit coupled with a high level of academic ability and voracious intellectual curiosity.

The Graduate School of Advanced Science and Engineering has set up an education and research network that integrates basic and applied sciences aligned with this new era. The Graduate School is striving to become a world-leading research center (graduate school for research), with an enterprising spirit to continually cultivate new academic fields.

The Graduate School of Advanced Science and Engineering uses the following tests and processes to select exceptional enrollees from Japan and abroad, who we believe can become world-leading researchers and engineers in a diversity of fields including those that integrate the latest findings and technologies in science, engineering and medicine. Students wishing to enroll in a Master’s course must take a general entrance examination comprising a scholastic ability test and interview. Those students with particularly outstanding grades may be eligible for admission by advanced placement and admission by internal recommendation. Waseda graduates with a Bachelor’s degree are also eligible for admission by special selection (for adult students and scholarship students).

The Graduate School also actively accepts international students as a part of its internationalization program. We use a combination of the following tests for screening and enrolling international students: AO Admission to English-based Graduate Program (review of documents and oral test); AO admissions examination of special scholarship programs.

Enrollment examinations for the doctoral courses include a general entrance examination, admission by recommendation (including students who complete a Master’s course early in around 1-1.5 years), AO Admission to English-based Graduate Program, special admission for the postgraduate study abroad program by the China Scholarship Council, and the AO admissions examination of special scholarship programs. Students with a Bachelor’s degree or higher need to take a general entrance examination for integrated doctoral courses.
