Download and read the Application Guidelines carefully. These guidelines contain a great deal of important information on admissions.

3. Prepare the required documents

Several documents must be submitted with the application and should be prepared in advance. The Application Guidelines and the Required Documents page provide information about such documents.
We advise applicants to request their letters of recommendation in advance to prevent complications or late submissions.

4. Submit your application online

If you are ready to apply, begin the process by clicking the “Apply” button at the top and bottom of this page. Applications are done through an online application system (TAO) and can be submitted during the entry periods.
Fill in all forms and upload your prepared documents. If you have any questions about the system, please refer to the guides below.

5. Pay the application fee

Remember to pay the application fee during the application period. The application fee is 5,000 JPY (non-refundable) and is payable via credit/debit card or other international payment options when submitting the application online.

Kyoto University of Advanced Science utilizes Flywire for the processing of our international students’ school fees. Flywire allows for payment from most banks, offers competitive exchange rates, and provides 24-hour user support.

6. Take an online interview

To learn more about you, we may ask you to participate in an online interview. You do not need to travel to Japan for this interview, as they are held via online video chat. Whether you are asked to take an interview or not, it will not affect your chances of being accepted, so there is no need to worry if you do not receive an invitation.
