Fulltime Programs (International Admission for Matriculated Students)

The entrance examination for international female undergraduate students is held twice a year. Because most Wayo classes are taught in Japanese, students must have passed the Japanese Language Proficiency Test Level 2 or above, or Japanese language section of the Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students (EJU) with a score of 200 points or higher.

In most departments, selection is based on an essay, a personal interview, and the student's academic record presented with their application.
