[Question]Our child attended an international school from elementary through high school ages. Is he eligible to enter Japanese university?

[Answer]
Most international schools are classified as “various” under the School Education Act, and do not come under Article 1. The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology provides on its homepage a list of schools that confer their student's eligibility to enter a Japanese university.
