Language Skills

When you study abroad, you are required to have adequate proficiency in the local language to participate in the courses with the local students.It is essential to start working on language skills at an early stage. At CIE, Preparatory Courses are offered for those who are planning to study in an English speaking country. A TOEFL iBT Official Test Center was established in 2010 at Rm 314, Bldg. 7 on Waseda Campus, so that students can take the TOEFL iBT on-campus.Regular full-time students enrolled in Waseda University can make prioritized reservations for exams at this venue before it is made available to the general public.
For those who are chosen as Chinese Double-Degree Program candidates, participation to our “Chinese DD Writing Course” are required.
