Q: Is it possible to visit the university campus?
A: Certainly. If you visit the Public Relations Office between 9 am and 4.30 pm on any day except Sundays and national holidays, you can receive our prospectus (available in Japanese only) and our campus map. You are welcome to freely look around the campus, and although you are not permitted to enter the classrooms, studios and workrooms, you can observe them from outside.
Since there are few students on campus during the summer, winter, and spring vacations, these times may not be appropriate times for your visit. The university is fully open to the public twice a year: at our open campus in mid-June and the art festival at the end of October. For the university schedule, please refer to the Calendar of Events.
Q: How can I get the prospectus?
A: The prospectus in English is available at our English Homepage.
To request the prospectus in Japanese, please refer below.

Q: How can I enroll at MAU?
A: If you would like to study at MAU, you are required to take an entrance exam. Information on our entrance examination is available here. Unfortunately, we do not offer any non-degree programs or short-term programs.
Q: Can I study at MAU as a research student?
A: If you are a Japanese Government Scholarship applicant (called the MEXT scholarship research student), you will be eligible to apply to our university as a research student. Please refer here for more details on the MEXT scholarship program. Unfortunately, we do not accept other research students.
Q: How much knowledge of Japanese is necessary?
A: Since all classes, seminars, and exams are conducted solely in Japanese, you should be able to write, read, and speak Japanese fluently. At the very least, you are required to sufficiently understand the application guidebook written in Japanese. Substitute language exam for international students and Japanese citizens returning from abroad may, at their request, be permitted. Copies of previous years' examinations (including the Japanese language test for international students) for the undergraduate level are available for purchase from below.
