FAQ

What are the kinds of questions asked at the time of the interview?

We interview our applicants for several reasons. One is to make sure the applicants understand what PEAK offers. We want to know why they want to come to PEAK and to the University of Tokyo. Another reason is to ensure the applicants possess interest in international affairs so that they may contribute to the University of Tokyo's effort to globalize its campus. Finally, we want to make sure the applicants have sufficient subject-related knowledge. Thus we will ask technical questions on the subjects they have studied in school and/or have studied for Official Examination Results for Academic Ability (such as SAT, ACT, IB and A-level).
