Global Family Program
As of May 2018, there are about 2,000 international students from 109 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, as well as letter exchange programs depending on the time, 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.
