Education for Life and Leadership

Over the last 88 years, NUCB has developed young leaders to become pioneers.


Advantages



NUCB International College is a world-class, co-educational boarding high school that nurtures the next generation of leaders. The school accepts a wide range of students from Japan and abroad and implements leadership education from an early age in a highly diverse environment. NIC is the only boarding school in central Japan accredited by the Ministry and Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) to offer two qualifications: the Japanese high school diploma and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB DP)*. All subjects apart from language classes are taught in English and all our students have the opportunity to be awarded the Bilingual IB DP Diploma.

Excellence in Education

The case method, first developed at Harvard Business School in 1922 and now commonly used in elite academic institutions worldwide, is incorporated into the teaching approaches for leadership education at NIC. Small classes enable personalised supervision by multinational faculty members with master's or doctoral degrees and faculty from affiliated top business schools. In addition, the Summer School for prospective students (July) and a preparatory course (the Bridging Programme) for September admission are offered in the Spring term.

Safe Boarding Environment

The school provides a safe and secure co-educational boarding environment with reference to international boarding standards. 'House Supervisors', who are well versed in psychological and health management, provide daily life support and regular individual counseling to ensure optimal support and guidance for each student. Through living together with peers from different cultures and experiences, students develop the qualities required of the next generation of leaders.


  • NUCB International College is a candidate school* for the Diploma Programme. It is pursuing authorisation as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy - a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education - that we believe is important for our students.
  • Only schools authorised by the IB Organisation can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorisation will be granted. For further information about the IB and diploma programme visit https://www.ibo.org/programmes/diploma-programme/.
