Upon arrival, students will receive a student ID and a “buddy” (a Japanese student from the university who will volunteer to pick up at airport and help adjust to housing).  Nagoya UFS also provides a number of various excursions in and around Japan.  These experiences allow students to see all the different aspects of Japan and its culture. 

Find out about clubs and student services you have as a student.  In addition, there is a Language Lounge where students can usually make language partners.

Find out about visa status, registration, and academic records here.

If students wish to work while studying at Nagoya UFS, they must apply for a special working permit before accepting any work.  Students are restricted to working only in our Language Lounge as a tutor during the semester. During their long holidays (either summer or winter) they are free to engage in outside part-time work, as long as they have first received permission from NUFS and have received a work permit from immigration. If students wish to have an internship, Nagoya UFS offers two-week internships to CJPN students who are intending to stay for one academic year. The period is for two weeks during the summer or winter holidays.
Here is a list of KSU students who have previously studied abroad at this university. Feel free to contact these students if you have any questions specifically about this program.
