Nagasaki University of Foreign Studies was founded in 1945. The school’s motto is “to foster mutual understanding between nations and their peoples by the study of languages and cultures.” It is to this end that the JASIN program caters to non-native students, with the focus on Japanese society and culture.
Most study abroad students stay with host families. The age and makeup of the host family and their apartment, condominium, or house vary; however, all hosts are chosen because they hope to introduce you to aspects of Japanese culture and assist you as you try to learn their language. Nagasaki University of Foreign Studies has an on-campus residence hall, Ampelos, for Japanese and international students to live and learn together.
