  • Applicants are required to complete the online application and submit the required documents by the final date of the application period.

III. Application Eligibility

Applicants must fulfill both of the following requirements:

Requirement 1 : Educational Background

Applicants must have completed, or be scheduled to complete one of the following criteria before the enrollment date at TIU.

  1. Applicants must have completed a standard 12-year education from a
    recognized education system.
  2. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age before the enrollment date
    at TIU, and have obtained one of the following qualifications.

    a. International Baccalaureate (awarded by the International
    Baccalaureate Organization)

    b. Abitur (issued by Federal Republic of Germany for college entrance)

    c. Baccalaureate Diploma (issued by the French Republic for college entrance)

*For Applicants who do not fulfill the 12-year education requirement:
Applicants from countries where the length of education is less than 12 years (e.g. Russia, Malaysia, Myanmar, etc.) must complete an additional one year of university or one year of an authorized Japanese Foundation program in order to be eligible for our E-track program.

*If you have other education qualifications, please send your inquiries before application periods start using the Eligibility Verification Form.

Requirement 2 : English Proficiency

Applicants must be able to demonstrate sufficient English ability to understand lectures in English.

To demonstrate English proficiency, applicants must take one of the following English tests and achieve at least the minimum score indicated below.

TOEFL iBTTOEICIELTSPTEEIKEN
61 700 5.5 45 Pre-1

*Make sure that the test you sign up for is not an Institutional Test (IP / ITP). IP / ITP Score Reports are a useful way to check English ability for schools / companies to use internally, but they cannot be accepted by TIU. That means if you take a test within your high school, or at your language school that is not an official test center, you are at risk of it being an Institutional Test.

Current Institutional Tests to watch out for:

  • TOEIC Institutional Placement Test (IP)
  • TOEFL Institutional Test Placement (ITP)
  • IELTS Free Practice Tests
