JPSS, for information about studying in Japan's universities and graduate schools. > Universities with Pre-Arrival Admissions
Pre-Arrival Admissions means you do not have to travel to Japan until you are accepted and ready to attend.
Although many of the Universities still require applicants to be present for on-campus exams, the programs on this list allows applicants to apply and be screened from outside of Japan.
Even within the same university, whether Pre-Arrival Admissions are available or not will differ for each Faculty / Department /Program. Make sure that the admissions information you find are for the Faculty/ Department/ Programs that you want to study in.
Pre-Arrival Admissions application period is usually limited. Even if the program you want to apply for has 3 application periods, it is likely that Pre-Arrival Admissions is available for only one of them, or on a different schedule than admissions for applicants in Japan.
Check in advance which test scores are needed for application. Planning ahead is essential in getting the necessary documents ready.
