Profile
Nagoya University, since its foundation in 1939 as one of seven imperial universities, has developed as one of the nation's leading universities. As a result of having established our basic philosophy in teaching and research, we have created a unique system of education and research, achieved a high level of research results, and played a significant role in fostering many of Japan's current and future leaders. This success is attributed to the liberal and vivid character created in Nagoya University as the latest-established imperial university where education and research are free from traditional rigid thoughts. Regarding exchange with overseas research institutions, Nagoya University endeavors to actively promote international academic exchange on the basis of academic exchange agreements that have been concluded with over 230 institutions of higher education. At present we have approximately 1250 international students and a large number of international researchers. We are proud that we are able to provide them with an excellent environment of education and research.

Comments & Latest Information
The Nagoya University Program for Academic Exchange (NUPACE), established in February 1996, is a short-term student exchange program, through which international students enrolled at Nagoya University's partner institutions are given the opportunity to study in Japan for four to twelve months. The program aims to forge friendships that extend beyond borders, internationalize through education, and motivate overseas students to pursue more extensive studies with regard to Japan. NUPACE offers a unique and flexible curriculum consisting of Japanese language instruction, Japan area/intercultural studies and a wide range of courses in the student's major field of study.
