Pre-arrival Admission Approval:

   “Pre-arrival admission approval” is a system whereby applicants to FWU are allowed to apply for admission and to take the entrance examination (while being in their countries) and are judged as a successful candidate for admission on the bases of the scores of EJU and of FWU’s independent exam.
FWU holds this Pre-arrival Admission Examination for international students in Korea (Seoul) and Vietnam (Hanoi), giving the task of writing a short essay and an oral exam. With this type of entrance examination, any overseas candidates can take an examination without coming to Japan.
