Entrance Admission (Applying Directly from Home Country)/Hiroshima University of Economics


HUE accepts international students in order to foster global-minded people who can be a bridge between Japan and other countries. For this reason HUE provides special programs for international students, as well as offering a special entrance examination for international applicants different from the regular examination.
HUE provides an “Entrance Admission (Applying Directly from Home Country)” system for international applicants. This system has been adopted for international applicants to enable the taking of the entrance examination in the applicant’s home country using the applicant’s score in the Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students (EJU), administered by the Japan Student Service Organization (JASSO).
