About the Center

Nagasaki University Liaison Center for International Education supports students’ ambitions for international experiences by offering cross-cultural opportunities. Our Center provides Japanese language education to students from other institutions who are interested in studying in a Nagasaki University program, and in collaboration with the Nagasaki International Student Support Center, we offer cultural exchange opportunities with Japanese students within and outside Nagasaki University. For Nagasaki University students, in addition to providing support for study aboard programs, we promote collaborative language education programs with the Center for Language Studies. It is often said that life is an ever-evolving journey. We hope that during your university days you will explore various possibilities for self-improvement, and we will be pleased to support your challenges.
