Boarding Life at NUCB International College


NIC is dedicated to providing a holistic boarding environment that fosters the development of future leaders. In addition to academic rigours, the school holds regular programs that support students' emotional and mental well-being. For example, there are monthly excursions, the weekly Wellbeing Programme which teaches students valuable life skills that are useful outside of the classroom, and In-House activities which are student-led such as culture and movie night and even Ping Pong Competitions.   These programs, along with the support of the House Supervisors, allow students to develop life skills and improve their overall well-being. The diverse student body and English-language instruction create an environment that encourages students to learn and grow together. The combination of academic, emotional and cultural experiences makes NIC unique among all schools in Japan.

   Recently, the International House started a new activity called Friday Night Thoughts, where students have the opportunity to make presentations and practice public speaking. Students present on topics they are interested in which helps students improve their communication skills, and also gives them a chance to express their ideas in supportive and encouraging environments. These presentation skills developed at the International House are essential for students to build confidence for their careers alongside serving as a method of preparing for oral examinations at the end of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program course.

   Past events at the Boarding House have included making mochi with the Aichi Prefectural governor and a challenging hike up Mt. Horaiji. These activities provide students with the opportunity to learn new skills, build camaraderie, and gain a sense of accomplishment, all while having fun and making memories. The school's focus on holistic education and personal growth is evident in the diverse and dynamic events offered.

NIC Advantages

NUCB International College is designed to provide a world-class education with excellent facilities and a rich natural environment, on its 200-acre campus, in Nisshin city, Japan.

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 also offered.

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 support and regular individual counselling 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.
