We guarantee dormitories where both Japanese and international students reside - fostering an international community both on and off-campus. At NUCB Undergraduate School, we consider living together with students from other cultural backgrounds to be a critical part of the international experience - students with diverse social, linguistic, cultural and religious backgrounds, personalities and ways of thinking live in the dormitories.

Capable of speaking both Japanese and English, the RA's will provide support for the international students in the dormitories, holding networking and cultural activities and events, involving the students in the NUCB Community. This will provide the international students with opportunities to deepen their understanding of Japanese language and culture while fostering deeper and broader connections with their peers.

Putting into practice skills gained from studying abroad

I have experienced two virtual study abroad programs, meeting students from all over the world, coming into contact with many cultures and ideas I had never known before, and acquiring the basic skills to become a global human resource.

As an RA, I am excited about the opportunity to further improve my English skills and experience various cultures by interacting with international students on a daily basis. As an RA, I would like to support not only the daily lives of international students but also actively communicate with them to share our cultures so that their life in Japan will be meaningful without any inconvenience.

Improve English and learn about other cultures

I entered the Faculty of International Studies because I want to work abroad in the future. Within one year of entering NUCB, I achieved a TOEIC score of 520, which exceeded my goal of 500. However, to realize my dream of working abroad I need to further improve my English skills.

I decided to participate in the RA program because I thought that by interacting with international students in their daily lives as an RA, I could not only improve my English, but also learn about other cultures, and by sharing Japanese culture with them, I would be able to grow as a person. I believe that this kind of experience is an opportunity that I can only have now as a student. As part of my future RA activities, I would like to actively hold exchange meetings with international students and work together with them to create good memories during their precious time in Japan.
