International Education


The Nagoya University Short-Term Japanese Language Program (NUSTEP) offers two week of intensive Japanese classes. Participants will join specialized lectures by faculty and visit some of the laboratories on campus. We aim to promote a greater understanding of Japanese culture and society.
The program also provides various on and off-campus activities such as cultural excursions, field trips, exchanges and discussions with Nagoya University students. All participants will receive a certificate upon completion of the program.

*Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the part of the 2021 NUSTEP Spring program in which students come to Japan has been canceled. (February 4-18, 2021). In its place, we plan to conduct a two-week online program instead. Once the details of the program are confirmed, we will contact the administration offices of our partner universities.
