Global Family Program
Presently, there are 1800 international students from 95 countries studying at Nagoya University,
making the University campus a truly global community. Taking advantage of this rich environment,
the Global Family Program organizes a short term homestay program on weekends and national holidays for
international students. University staff members, members of local volunteer groups,
and individuals who are interested in international exchanges act as host families for the program.
In the past, international students participating in the program have enjoyed eating home-cooked Japanese meals, playing with children, talking with local people and many other fun activities. Students have also had the opportunity to introduce their own cultures to their host families.
To international students
The schedule for the Global Family Program homestay is posted on the bulletin boards on the first floor of the International Center building and our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/NUECIS.ACS. If you are interested in participating, submit a completed International Student Application Form along with a photograph of yourself to the ACS Office by the deadline posted. This program is available to students of Nagoya University.
