Document Screening: The list of successful applicants is here.

Novel Coronavirus infection has been rapidly spreading in Tokyo metropolitan area and some other regions in Japan over the last few weeks. To stop ongoing rapid expansion of the infection and protect medical system of this country from collapsing, the Prime Minister of Japan has declared state of emergency on April 7, 2020. In response to this crisis, Waseda University has made a decision to close down its campuses and asked all faculty and staff work at home. However, the off-campus administrative work relating the entrance exams are not allowed by the university’s private information protection rule, therefore further screening process must be suspended while the campuses are closed. Taking this difficult situation into consideration, the Graduate School of Social Sciences has decided to postpone the second screening dates (interview) from May 9th and 10th to June 6th and 7th. According to this postponement, the final announcement of successful applicants will also be re-scheduled as below.
