To help prospective students with diverse backgrounds, the GSIS offers several entrance examinations for its M.A. program. The standard admission assessment consists of written examinations, a research proposal, and an interview. Mature and overseas students are eligible for specialized assessments that dispense with a part or all of the written examinations and instead focuses on the research proposal and the interview. Detailed information on admission procedures are available here (in Japanese).
