Why Study at NUFS

NUFS Nagasaki, Japan

There are a large number of options to study abroad in Japan, here are just a few reasons why you should study abroad at the Nagasaki University of Foreign Studies (NUFS) through UW-Platteville Education Abroad:

Onsite support and student services

Students studying abroad through UW-Platteville Education Abroad can rest assured knowing that the NUFS on-site staff ensures everything from airport pick-up to securing accommodation and from assisting with course registration to organizing activities and excursions.  There is no matter too big or too small for NUFS’s outstanding staff!

Individual attention and academic excellence

NUFS professors are regularly available for office hours, and NUFS prides itself on its small class sizes, ensuring that students receive one-on-one attention in language study and enjoy intimate classroom discussions.

Every student is studying a foreign language

As one of Japan’s seven foreign language universities, NUFS attracts students who have a particular interest in global issues and studies, making NUFS an ideal environment for language study and cultural exchange inside and outside of the classroom.

Safe, comfortable, and accessible campus and city

With a population of 400,000 and easy access by streetcar and bus, Nagasaki is large enough to keep students busy on the weekends but small enough to run into friends on the street.  The NUFS campus, built in 1996, provides a comfortable place to study while enjoying the beautiful view of Omura Bay.

Students create strong ties to the local community

Living in a homestay with a local family or along side international students in the residence hall and participating in NUFS's excursions, activities, and events gives students a variety of opportunities to build real relationships and connections in and around Nagasaki.


A semester abroad can be more expensive than a semester in the United States, so UW-Platteville Education Abroad strives to keep costs as low as possible with this in mind.  By living like a local student and taking advantage of the on-site staff's extensive expertise, UW-Platteville Education Abroad and NUFS are able to offer one of the most affordable education abroad programs in Japan.

a history of amazing experiences

UW-Platteville Education Abroad has been helping students from across the United States study at NUFS since 1995 and hundreds of students have rated it the best experience of their life.  See what recent program participants have been saying about their experience on Abroad101: studyabroad101.com/programs/uw-platteville-education-abroad-at-the-nagasaki-university-of-foreign-studies-nufs.
