  • Make sure to follow all the instructions (e.g., full-width/half-width characters).
  • Make sure to keep a printout of your online application for your own records.
  • Applications or documents found to be incomplete or to contain errors may not be considered for selection. The university does not contact applicants even if any errors or omissions are discovered in the applications, so make sure you carefully check your application.
  • Applications made outside the application period are invalid. Late submissions, regardless of the reason (e.g., data was submitted late or was not sent because of issues with your computer or there was too much web traffic), will not be accepted. Try to apply as early as possible as the website may be busy on the last day of the application period.
