●The application period specified by the government is quite short, and the university must process a significant number of applications during that time. Replying to student inquiries will greatly slow down the process, so instead of inquiring, all students are asked to read the guidelines and decide for themselves if they have any uncertainties regarding the application.
●The university will be closed from 12/28～1/5 for winter vacation. No inquiries will be replied to during this time.
●Applications made anywhere but the designated online form will NOT be processed. Please also note that applications cannot be submitted via post.
●Ritsumeikan students cannot apply via the LINE option arranged by MEXT. Apply from the online application at the link above, only.
