To comprehend lectures in Japanese at the undergraduate level, international applicants are expected to possess at least a lower advanced level of Japanese or the level N2 of Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT).
Mastery of a lower elementary level of Japanese along with a good command of English is expected of exchange students who plan to take courses in the Japan Studies Program (JSP).
Although no JLPT level is required, the departments measure your target language skills by examining your EJU score for Japanese as a foreign language as well as demonstrated oral skills during an application interview.
Examination results are announced on this website.
