Kanagawa University offers a program for prospective students to take a graduate-level course at the university free of charge. This program gives people thinking about entering one of our graduate schools an opportunity to develop a concrete idea of what they would like to study and thus ensures they have a focused study program after regular matriculation.

To date, a total of about 1,270 prospective students have attended courses held in the following seven graduate schools: Graduate School of Law, School of Law, Graduate School of Economics, Graduate School of Business Administration, Graduate School of Foreign Languages, Graduate School of Human Sciences, and Graduate School of History and Folklore Studies. Of those, 36 later enrolled in the school. In the first semester of the 2017 academic year, courses are being held at five of these graduate schools, excluding the Graduate School of Business Administration and the School of Law.
