The applicants who have passed the First Screening shall directly contact the Japanese universities they wish to apply
to (maximum of four universities at the same time) after the notification of the First Screening results by Fri., August
24 (Japan time) in order to request the issuance of admission letters or letters of provisional acceptance as a regular or
a non-regular student in graduate school, (hereinafter, admission letters.) A contact with universities requesting
issuance of the admission letter made on Sat., August 25 or after is not permitted. Since Fri., August 24 is not the
deadline for the universities to issue admission letters, applicants must not urge the universities for the issuance.
However, applicants may confirm with the university if the scheduled time of the issuance is delayed. In addition,
applicants should keep it in mind when planning to request admission letters that universities generally need one
month to issue an admission letter. In order to contact universities, applicants may receive from the Japanese
diplomatic mission contact information of the departments in charge of foreign students in Japanese universities and
the websites to search Japanese universities and researchers.
