pplicants from countries that do not offer official English tests or other applicants for whom it is not possible to take such tests owing to unavoidable circumstances (including schedule conflicts or excessive economic burden not including the exam fees) may be permitted to apply for admission to the Institute and may be given conditional admission upon passing the selection process if one or more of the following criteria are met:
- If the applicant submits documentation related to English proficiency issued by the President and Dean of the last school attended.
- If the applicant passes an English proficiency evaluation in a face-to-face interview administered by an English lecturer from the Institute, or a selection committee member during an academic event held by the Institute such as overseas symposiums.
The important thing is any students admitted to the Institute with conditional admission due to unavailability of official English test results must, within 6 months from the date of admission, submit official English test results that meet the application criteria of the Institute.
This conditional admission is very rare and only granted in extreme circumstances. Therefore, all applicants should prepare for their English tests and submit their results.
