International students who enter Bunka Fashion College from foreign countries will be studying alongside their Japanese classmates, and will need a sufficient level of Japanese language to be able to understand the lessons.
Examples of the required Japanese language level would be: N2 or above level in the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT), or 200 points or above in the Japanese language course of the Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students (EJU).

*The application process and the entrance examination you take will differ depending on which visa you have/will get. Those who have a student visa will take the exam for international students. Meanwhile, those who have any visa other than a student visa will take the same exam as Japanese students take. The application schedule and required documents are different between those two. If you are not sure which exam you will take, call us at 03-3299-2216. (English-speaking staff may not always be available.)


*Change of the qualification for application
To international applicants who are not in Japan nor having a student visa at the point of application documents submission
Considering the current situation of the coronavirus (COVID-19) infection, Bunka Fashion College has decided to accept applications by the applicants who are yet to fulfill any qualification (5)①~③ but to expect to fulfill it by the end of March 2021. However, in case an applicant is unable to satisfy any of (5)①~③ by the end of March 2021, for any reasons (including cancellation of Japanese proficiency tests, failure in passing/getting enough score on Japanese proficiency tests), Bunka Fashion College will rescind a decision on passing an entrance examination of that person. In such a case, we will not refund the application fee.

This application guide is for international students with a STUDENT VISA.
