  3. have circumstance(s) that are deemed by Kyoto University President to be comparable to those described in 2).


  • Students who are behind in their tuition payment are ineligible to apply.

If a student submits an application and then receives a disciplinary action, that application will be rejected.
  • Students who pay the tuition before a decision is made on their applications will be considered to have withdrawn their applications.

Application results will be made available on EOAS in late July. Each applicant is responsible for checking their own results via EOAS.
