When applying independently, please read “Admission Guide to Japanese Language Program” carefully and submit all application documents to Center for Japanese Language in prescribed application period.
(2) Applying as an exchange student
If your university has an academic exchange agreement with Waseda university, you have a chance to apply for the program as an exchange student. For more information regarding the exchange program, please check the website of Center for International Education of Waseda University.
(3) Applying as a Japanese government (MEXT) scholarship student
If you would like to apply for JLP as a MEXT (Japanese Government) Scholarship student, please visit MEXT website or the Japanese Embassy in your country for further information. If you are granted the Japanese Government Scholarship, it is not necessary for you to apply for a university by yourself. The Ministry of Education will arrange your entrance to a Japanese university. However, in this case, even though you can send the list of the universities you want to enter, the Ministry of Education will determine your admission after the negotiation with the universities.
