Entrance Exams for the Undergraduate Course

In the Department of Tourism Science, we admit diverse talents using various selection methods such as the Entrance Exam for Selected Candidates (General Recommendation) and the Admission Office (AO) Entrance Exam in addition to the General Selection Entrance Exam (first-half schedule, second-half schedule). For the General Selection Entrance Examination, we select those students who have studied a wide range of basic subjects in high school, acquired unbiased knowledge, and mastered satisfactory basic academic skills. In the first-half schedule, we select those students who have basic academic skills in the field of science that are sufficient for learning tourism science based on the scientific methodologies specified by the department; this is measured through an Entrance Exam by the National Center for University Entrance Examination (seven subjects in five subject areas) and the Independent Academic Ability Exam (three subjects in three subject areas).

In the second-half schedule, we select candidates who are superior in logical thinking and match the student image required by the department; this is measured through an Entrance Exam by the National Center for University Entrance Examination (six subjects in five subject areas) and the Independent Academic Ability Exam (short essay only). These entrance exams for the second-half schedule are manageable even for students in the humanities who have taken mathematics and science courses.
In addition, we conduct the Exam for Selected Candidates (General Recommendation) and the Admission Office (AO) Entrance Exam (for the global education program) as various selection methods, and the Entrance Exam for Returnee Students/Students Who Have Repatriated Guardians From China, the Entrance Exam for International Students, and the Entrance Exam for Privately Funded Foreign Students as special selection.
