NUSTEPNagoya University Short-Term Japanese Language Program


The Nagoya University Short-Term Japanese Language Program (NUSTEP) offers two weeks of intensive Japanese classes for a student who are currently enrolled as a degree-seeking student in a university with an academic exchange agreement with Nagoya University. Participants will join specialized lectures by faculty and visit some of the laboratories on campus. We aim to promote a greater understanding of Japanese culture and society.
The program also provides various on and off-campus activities such as cultural excursions, field trips, exchanges and discussions with Nagoya University students. All participants will receive a certificate upon completion of the program.


HEO Myeongja Professor, International Language Center

I am the coordinator of Nagoya University Short-Term Japanese Language Program (NUSTEP) and teach Japanese at the International Language Center. My research subject is Japanese language education, especially researching Japanese language grammar and communication styles of Japanese language learners.
NUSTEP aims to get an opportunity to study at Nagoya University. You can experience excellent education and research activities at Nagoya University and deepen your knowledge of Japanese language and cultures. I am sure you will find a dream you want to realize at Nagoya University. I hope you will find a new research topic in Japanese Studies at Nagoya University.
