Do College in Japan in 3 Easy Steps!

You can Do College in Japan – at TCU – in just 3 easy steps!

  1. Step 1: Fill in
  2. Step 2: Schedule a time to talk
  3. Step 3: Let us guide you through the rest

That’s it!

  • Will you enter college as a freshman? There are just 3 steps.
  • Will you transfer from somewhere else? For you, too, it’s just 3 steps.

Best of all, you won’t have to take them all by yourself. We’ll be here for you. And we’re confident we can zoom you right through. It’ll be Day 1 of Fall Orientation at TCU before you know it.

Step 1: Fill in this form

The first step to doing college in Japan is super easy but super important:

Just click on and fill in the form.

It’ll only take 5 minutes. That’s Step 1!

Look, we know that applying to college can be confusing. So we’ll make it as easy and as painless as possible. But first, let us know you want to do college in Japan. And at Tokyo Christian University.

(Here’s what’ll happen when you click on . We’ll simply ask you a few questions about yourself, and how to get in touch with you. It really is as quick and as painless as can be.)

Step 2: Schedule a time to talk

The second step to doing college in Japan is this:

Schedule a time to talk with us. 

Your story is different from everyone else’s. Maybe it’s only a little different. Or maybe it’s a lot different. Either way, now that we know you’re interested, we want to figure out how we can best guide you through Step 3.

So after you finish , we’ll email you to schedule a time to talk. We’ll probably suggest that we meet on Zoom, but we’re flexible.

Then we’ll talk, and we’ll plan Step 3.

Step 3: Let us guide you through the rest

The third step to doing college in Japan is this:

Let us guide you through the entire application process.

We’re happy to do that. It might even be fun. Well, the filling-out-forms part may not exactly be “fun,” but we’ll enjoy getting to know each other.

And Step 3 is also meaningful. It’s not just a bunch of hoops to jump through. It’s a great opportunity to make sure we’re a good fit for each other. So look forward to it!

But you can wait a while longer to think about Step 3. We’ll get to that after you finish  and we go through Step 2 together.

Too Easy?

Actually, there is one more way you can go about it.

Plenty of people have taken this route before, so it’s actually not that hard.

Just scroll down this page and follow all the instructions below.

But EVEN if you decide to do it that way, we’d still love to know you’re on your way.

So, if you will, email us today. Or , introduce yourself, and let us know your plans in the comment box at the bottom of the form.

For Transfer Students

The application procedure is different for transfer students. If you wish to apply as a transfer student, you will need to complete the Prescreening Consultation. To do so, send the Prescreening Consultation form along with your academic transcript(s) from the institution(s) where you completed (or expect to complete) your post-secondary education. The Admissions Office will review your documents and determine whether you are eligible to apply as a transfer student, as well as the year you can transfer into. Please send your documents to the Admissions Office by email (admission@tci.ac.jp).

Before you do all this, however, we encourage you to reach out and complete  as soon as you can.
