2) GLOBAL JAPAN STUDIES COURSE
2-1) Newly offered Business Internship Program starting Spring 2018!

In April 2018 NUFS will launch a new Business Internship Program as part of the Global Japan Studies Course. Exchange and domestic student alike will learn about business practices at Japan's leading companies and selected students will then practice the knowledge and skills they have gained in the program through internships at the companies in question. The internships in Spring semester 2018 will take place at Denso and Aisin AW.

This new program is built on three pillars: 1) acquiring academic knowledge on Japan’s manufacturing business from basics to practice, 2) giving a presentation at an actual Japanese company, and 3) an Internship.

The Internship goes far beyond a mere tour of the company. The aim of the internship is for students to gain understanding on the Japanese manufacturing practices through working on solving practical tasks.This unique academic course combines lectures, presentations and internship for both domestic and exchange students.

3) L2 COURSE FOR STUDENTS WITH LOWER ENGLISH PROFICIENCY
Some English-taught courses for NUFS domestic students are also available to exchange students. These courses do not require a high English proficiency and are not therefore recommended for students with a native or near-native English proficiency. Further, these courses will not be included in the 7-classroom hour/week minimum, and can only be taken if the said minimum has been met with the Japan Language Course and/or Global Japan Studies Course classes detailed above.

L2 Course Classes Offered in Academic Year 2018
