AO entrance examination

The AO (Admission Office) entrance examination is a way to comprehensively determine the abilities and aptitudes of applicants for admission, their motivation for learning, and sense of purpose, etc., through detailed document review and thorough interviews. In the document review, the knowledge and skills required for learning in each faculty and department, and the applicant's attitude toward working proactively on various tasks are evaluated through learning activities, extracurricular activities at senior high school, and social activities such as volunteering. In the interview, their attitude toward active involvement with others, and their awareness of learning at the university, ability to think, judgment, and expressive skills required for problem solving using knowledge and skills, are all evaluated. (The AO entrance examination is not implemented in the Faculty of Health and Nutrition.)
