Q: How do I apply?
A: Download the application form, statement of purpose, and health certificate. Fill them in. Part of the health certificate needs to be filled in by a physician. Submit all of them with (1) a photo copy of your passport which shows your name, date of birth and nationality, (2) three identical photographs (3.0 cm x 4.0cm) with your signature on the reverse side of the photo, and (3) a resume, to the International Office (or an office which deals with international exchange program) at your university. If you are not a native speaker of English, you need to also submit a document that certifies your English proficiency level (i.e., TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS).
Q: When is the application deadline?
Your university will be sending your application packet to Nagoya University to meet our February 28, 2017 deadline. This means your university is likely to have set up an earlier deadline on your campus. Please ask the appropriate office at your university for their deadline.
The number of participants we can accept is limited. We may not be able to accept those who apply late or those who do not submit all the documents before the deadline. Therefore, we strongly encourage applicants to meet the deadline.
Q: I speak no Japanese, but can I still participate in the program?
Certainly. The course on Automobile Engineering will be offered in English. There will be a Japanese course for beginners. We will also be offering an intermediate or advanced Japanese class for those who have already studied Japanese.
Q: Where will the participants stay during the session?
We will have a hotel booked for the night of June 13, 2017. The participants will be expected to reach the hotel and spend the night of June 13, 2017 at the hotel. A representative from Nagoya University will meet with the participants in the morning of June 14, 2017 and take them to university dormitory where they will be staying until July 20, 2017.
Q: I am new to the area. How do I find my way to the hotel?
You will get directions to the hotel from Nagoya Centrair International Airport and from Nagoya JR Station.
Q: My friend (or a family member) will be visiting me during my stay in Nagoya. Can they stay in my room with me?
No, no guests including your family members are allowed to stay over night in the housing.
Q: By when will I have to move out from the housing on July 20, 2017?
Q: How much is the fee and what does it cover?
