GPEM Admission

February 5, 2020
For prospective students in mainland China who cannot provide us with your TOEFL®, IELTS, GRE® and GMAT ™scores due to Coronavirus


Instead of submitting these test scores to the online pre-application system, please upload evidence of cancellation of these tests in your regions or a document that explains why you cannot provide us with the scores. Without uploading such an alternative document, you cannot complete our pre-application.


Please note that the application deadlines for TOEFL®, IELTS, GRE® and GMAT ™scores , even if you submit the alternative document, remain unchanged. That is, the final application materials including TOEFL®, IELTS, GRE® and GMAT ™scores need to arrive at Tohoku University by April 6, 2020 for Master’s program and March 31, 2020 for Doctoral program (see PDF files below). Therefore, we suggest that you arrange to take the tests in March and prepare all other application materials well in advance.


February 21, 2020
A further notice to prospective students in mainland China who have already completed the pre-application with proof of test (TOEFL®, IELTS, GRE® and GMAT ™ ) cancellation instead of test scores of the above due to Covid-19 (Coronavirus)


We understand that many students in mainland China are confronted with difficulties in taking TOEFL®, IELTS, GRE® and GMAT ™ examinations due to the outbreak of Covid-19. Facing this very unusual event, we have decided to use information in your academic transcript instead of scores of GRE® and GMAT ™. However, you still need to submit scores of TOEFL® or IELTS in order to demonstrate your English proficiency. If you fail to do so, we are very sorry to say, but you will not be considered prospective students, and we will refund your application fee. Note that these special conditions apply to only those people in mainland China who have completed our pre-application in time.


Note: In order to apply to the master’s program (GPEM), there is no need to consult with our faculty staff in advance.
