Tuition Reduction and Waiver for International Students

In addition to scholarships, the university also has a tuition reduction and waiver system for international students. The university's tuition reduction and waiver system is intended to contribute to the cultivations of promising and talented personnel and provide equal opportunities for education for international students who are self-funded and require financial assistance for educational purposes. In previous years the reductions were approximately 30% of the annual tuition fees. Regular students enrolled in undergraduate faculties or graduate schools are eligible.
