【Important notice: Change in the AAO Screening Process】 (Updated on 15th January 2021)
Please note the following change in the AAO process for the 2021 entrance examination.
Applicants will be asked to name a prospective supervisor who you think would best suit your research theme in the process of AAO screening. He or she will check your application documents and inform you of whether you can move to the next step. Please don’t contact the named professor directly without his/her approval. The system has already updated.
