Students arriving at Central Japan International Airport (Centr'air) on designated dates can request a free of charge airport pick-up. Please make sure to submit your arrival information sheet and your e-ticket/booking confirmation on time!
Settling in a new country usually requires a lot of paperwork but fear not, we're here to help! During orientation sessions after your arrival, we will help you open your Japanese bank account, register your domicile at the local city hall, sign up for the National Health Insurance and take care of other necessary procedures.
Don't feel sure about your Japanese language skills? Don't worry! In addition to Japanese, our International Office staff is fluent in English, French and other languages, so there is no fear of language barrier!
Our domestic NUFS students will be living with you in the dormitories and serve as your Residence Assitants (RAs). They will be there to support and help you with your daily life matters. This will give you even more opportunities to interact with Japanese students and practice your Japanese. Naturally, all our RAs our bilingual, so you don't need to worry if you're not fluent enough in Japanese.
