Nagoya is a convenient location for students on exchange! Japan is well known as a country with a very high cost of living but overall costs in Nagoya are more than 20% cheaper than Tokyo. The city is conveniently laid out with all the amenities and expectations global students hold for living in a large urban setting. Restaurants, social activities and local travel are very easy for international exchange students in Japan. Even as the 3rd largest metropolitan city in Japan, students find plenty of opportunities to travel around Southeast Asia during the exchange period in Japan.
Note about Case Fees and School Service Charge - At the NUCB Business School, the fees of cases (e-case) are not covered by the partnership agreement. On average, each course total case fee is ~5,000 JPY and for most semester-based exchange students the approximate maximum case fee is 30,000 JPY/semester. Students need to purchase textbooks and other materials by themselves because these costs are not covered by the exchange agreement. Most courses are conducted by using e-casebooks. Cases are provided in data form and students must pay in cash at the office. The school requires all students from our partners schools to pay a separate administrative fee,the School Service Charge, per semester which includes student insurance fee, visa support and Kurimoto Gakuen Education Enhancement Fee (required by all students).
