There is nothing that says that you must be fluent in English to be able to study at a university in an English speaking country. Universities in English speaking countries require non-native English speaking students to secure a certain TOEFL® (Test of English as a Foreign Language) test score as one of their admission requirements. The TOEFL® test was designed by the non-profit education organization ETS (Educational Testing Service). Students who wish to study abroad for a long period of time or participate in the study abroad programs (e.g., exchange programs) coordinated by their universities are required to take the TOEFL® test. It is strongly recommended that those students who plan to apply to institutions where the TOEFL® test score is one of the entry requirements take the test as soon as possible.

In principle, Waseda University requires you to have obtained an adequate score more than one year prior to the beginning of the program. You must make an application to the CIE in October 2017 for programs starting in September 2018. Therefore, you will not be eligible unless you have obtained the necessary score at the time of application in October 2017. It is recommended to take the test as soon as possible since the test dates between August and September tend to become fully booked.

The Internet version of the TOEFL® (TOEFL® iBT) has been implemented in Japan since July 2006, and is currently the only version of the TOEFL® test that is being administered to students.

It takes more than 4 weeks for the official score reports to be ready, so be sure to plan your examination time well. The TOEFL® ITP test administered at Waseda University is easier to take than the official test. The CIE recommends that you take the ITP test before taking the official test. Please take note again that the TOEFL®ITP test scores generally cannot be used for selection either in Waseda University or in any of the host universities. However, there are some exceptions. Please check the latest program list.

When you take a test for the first time, it is natural that you would be unfamiliar with the test and the test conditions and get nervous, and it does not really matter whether or not the questions are difficult. Taking the TOEFL® ITP will help you gain a higher score in the official test.
