Students will participate in a mandatory orientation covering topics such as academics, university life, residence and registration procedures, staying with a Japanese family, transportation, and the Japanese health care system. Nagasaki University of Foreign Studies (NUFS) also has a conversation partner program. You will sign up a couple months before you depart for Japan and NUFS will get you in touch with local students before you arrive. You will be able to email each other and get to know one another and ask questions before arrival in Japan; and, once you arrive you might already have a friend waiting for you!
