PCP

Application

This page provides information on application to PCP. Students who wish to apply to the programme should refer to this guideline as well as the following pages:

If you still cannot find the information you seek, even after having read these pages carefully, please send your question to <PCPOffice[at]pcp.econ.keio.ac.jp>.
Please know that we do not respond to questions whose answers can be found on these webpages.

If you are an exchange student enrolled in the Keio International Programme or Japanese Language Programme, please visit the website of Keio International Center for details on how to register for a PCP class.

Eligibility

Keio undergraduate students excluding PEARL students:

In order to apply to PCP, a student must:

  1. Have completed at least four semesters and turn to the junior (third) year OR the senior (fourth) year in the following semester.
  2. Possess valid scores of TOEFL iBT 79 or IELTS (Academic Version) 6.5 overall or higher.
  3. Possess a GPA of 2.3 or higher (your GPA is on your grade report).
    Because the method of calculation for the GPA on your grade report results in a lower GPA compared to the method we used before, the minimum required level of GPA is now 2.3.

Students in faculties other than the Faculty of Economics are also welcome to apply, so long as they meet these three requirements.

PEARL students:

In order to apply to PCP, a student must:

  1. Have completed at least three semesters and is expected to turn to the junior (third) year OR the senior (fourth) year during the year following the period of application.
  2. Possess a GPA of 2.3 or higher (your GPA is on your grade report).
    Because the method of calculation for the GPA on your grade report results in a lower GPA compared to the method we used before, the minimum required level of GPA is now 2.3.

Note:
PEARL students can apply to the programme at the end of the autumn semester of their third semester or fifth semester. All successful applicants must participate in the PCP orientation which takes place in April to learn about PCP and its curriculum etc.
Successful PEARL students will actually start taking PCP classes in the autumn semester that follows this orientation, when they turn to their 3rd year or 4th year.

Application Documents

  1. Completed and signed application form
  2. Grade report
    • A Grade Report (学業成績表) is a certificate sent to your guarantor, showing a list of all classes you registered for at Keio University. Instead of a copy of this report, an applicant can also printout and submit the online Grade Report. However, applicants can not submit their Transcript (成績証明書) which are bought from the machines on campus.
    • Your GPA is on your Grade Report.
  3. English test score (TOEFL iBT or IELTS)
    • PEARL students are not required to submit their English test scores.
      The test scores must be valid(*) scores of TOEFL iBT or IELTS, taken by the applicant. The test score for IELTS must be the Academic Version.
  1. “Valid” means “valid on the day of application”.

Application period

All students, including PEARL students, apply during the same application period.

Spring 2019 application period:
Monday, 11 March – Friday, 15 March 4:45p.m.

The application period starts on the day after the grades are announced, and ends a week later. For example, if grades are announced on the 1st of January, the application period is from 2nd January to 9th January.

The minimum English test scores and minimum GPA, as well as the application period are subject to change. If you are thinking of applying to PCP, please visit this page frequently to check the latest information.

How to apply

The required application documents must be submitted in person to the Faculty of Economics Section in the Office of Student Services on Mita Campus or Hiyoshi Campus during the application period.
Applicants who are abroad during the application period should send the application documents, along with the REASON for being abroad, by email to <PCPOffice[at]pcp.econ.keio.ac.jp> during the application period.

Screening results

After careful examination of submitted application documents, a list of successful applicants will be uploaded on the Jukusei HP sometime in the evening of Friday the 22nd of March, 2019.
(We previously announced that the list of successful applicants will be posted on the bulletin board on the ground floor of the West Building at Mita, but this will no longer be the case.)
