About Exchange in Nagoya, Japan

Nagoya University is located in the nerve center of the Chubu Industrial Zone, a region where traditional and modern industries meet. The area has played a central role in Japan's history as the home of Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and Tokugawa Ieyasu, the three military leaders who unified Japan more than 400 years ago, bringing an end to the Period of Warring States.

Nagoya University offers a wide range of coursework taught in English, and it is an ideal university for students with limited Japanese language background.
