Deregulation for International Schools

The education ministry has been studying a proposal to allow graduates from about 20 international schools to matriculate to national universities without having to take a separate exam. At present, such students have to obtain the "Daiken" college admission certificate which shows that they meet national academic standards. The proposal would recognize the certification currently provided to most international schools with an English curriculum by such bodies as the Western Association of Schools and Colleges of the US and the British European Council for International Schools. The plan would not apply to the majority of international schools, which cater to Korean or Chinese speaking students. Ministry officials have until the end of March to finalize the plan.
