⇨ Why Study in Japan?

Driven by our Educational Philosophy, outlined below, our ambition is for every student to reach her or his potential and make a contribution to society. In simple terms, we want students to be the best that they can be individually without fear of competition or failure. We endeavour to ensure that motivation comes from within so that it is constructive and enduring and not driven by competition or comparisons. The academic and pastoral support programmes and overall experience at NIC, put students on a path to lifelong achievement via the garnering of real skills and connections with quality teachers, professors and colleagues in a caring and collaborative environment.

The school is located in greater Nagoya, Japan's third most populous city and home to the country's greatest concentration of automobile, fine ceramics, aerospace, and other high-tech industries. It is known as the transportation hub of the country, making travel to other destinations fast and easy. Furthermore, the Chubu Centrair International Airport is easily accessible from the city center and functions as a convenient transit point for domestic flights and a key gateway to overseas.
