puts effort into receiving exchange students from overseas partner
institutions. Our exchange students come from over a hundred universities
around the world. By providing opportunities for our domestic and international
students to study together, we hope they will learn from one another and deepen
their understanding of foreign cultures as well as their own, in order to
foster the ability to think and act with a global mindset.
its broad-ranging and rich curriculum, NUFS aims at fostering students with
deep expertise and high linguistic proficiency, able to engage with the society
with empathy and from an international perspective. One of the challenges Japan
faces as a rapidly internationalizing nation is how to build a society, whereby
Japanese and foreign residents can live harmoniously side by side. Further,
fostering human resources with a rich global perspective able to flourish on
the globalized scene is yet another social challenge. With four hundred
domestic students participating in study abroad programs at NUFS’s partner
institutions every year, NUFS ranks 1st in Central Japan and 6th nation-wide in
terms of the number of students sent overseas to study.
