Consultation sessions at individual booths (GIS faculty members, administrative staff, and GIS students will answer individual questions and concerns).

At GIS, our current entrance examination methods primarily include the general exam, the comprehensive exam, and the school recommendation exam. Last year, we revised our comprehensive exam to evaluate candidates more holistically, therefore assessing not only their current English proficiency but also their potential to improve after enrollment. This change allowed us to accept many students with different backgrounds in April 2024, further enriching the diverse learning environment that has been our mission since our establishment.
With approximately 15 years of experience since our establishment in 2008, we continue to leverage our expertise to develop graduates who are confident global leaders, capable of contributing to international society, regardless of geographical boundaries. They can use English as a common language and possess global-standard knowledge, practical skills, and a forward-thinking mindset. We are committed to further enhancing our support for the post-graduation paths of students, whether they pursue careers in Japanese global companies, foreign affiliated companies, overseas graduate schools, or entrepreneurship.
We hope that many prospective students will understand why GIS conducts our liberal arts education in English and make an application with this knowledge. Upon acceptance, we deeply desire that they will thrive in GIS's enriching learning environment and achieve significant personal and academic growth.
