  • Please confirm the conditions for application with each scholarships as it depends on which college/graduate school and year you belong to.
  • In principle, we will accept applications from privately financed international students after entering AGU. However, it is difficult to receive scholarships immediately after enrollment, so studying abroad shall not be the basis to apply for a scholarship. While applying for the entrance exam for AGU, you are required to secure the necessary expenses to study abroad by yourself.

With a purpose of supporting students to keep studying, AGU provides a system for international students with a student status of residence to receive tuition exemption during the period they need to take a leave of absence due to military service in their home country (1 time only during enrollment in AGU, maximum for 2 years).

If you wish to apply a leave of absence and tuition exemption due to military service, please consult with the International Center.
