Study Abroad Program (Faculty of International Studies)

The goal of the study abroad program is to enable students to have improved proficiency in a foreign language by spending a considerable period of time in the country where it is spoken, as well as to deepen their understanding of the cultures there. The language chosen upon entering the university will determine which country they will study in. NUIS has a close affiliation with several overseas institutions. This ensures a quality study environment for our students.

Special Features of NUIS Study Abroad Program

• Participants can graduate within four years even if they spend one semester abroad during their sophomore year.

• The academic units earned abroad are transferrable to NUIS.

• All participants will be granted a scholarship.
