I graduated from a junior college and have a career as a working adult. Can I apply for graduate school?
At our graduate school, we conduct "individual admission qualification screening" twice a year (in May and November) for those who do not have the qualifications for admission to graduate school.This is a test to determine whether you can take the entrance exam for your desired major. Those who are approved in the "Individual Entrance Eligibility Screening" will be able to take the entrance exam for the major that passed that year's screening. (Please note that even if you complete graduate school, you will not be able to obtain qualifications that require a bachelor's degree, such as a teaching license.)
<Target people>
Those who do not have a "bachelor's" degree in master's and master's programs
Those who do not have a "master's" degree in the doctoral program
