News: NIAD-QE Awarded Bachelor's Degrees to 2,181 People

 

NIAD-QE awards Bachelor's degrees to learners other than matriculated university students who have acquired enough academic credits and have sufficient academic attainments in their discipline.
Applications are accepted twice a year, in April and October.
As provided in the School Education Act, NIAD-QE is the only entity besides universities that is authorized to confer degrees in Japan.

 

NIAD-QE awarded Bachelor's degrees to 2,181 of the 2,263 people who applied in October 2016, including persons who graduated from junior colleges or colleges of technology and those who completed professional training colleges.
