Studying at NUCB International College (NIC) provides high school students from around the world with a unique opportunity to study in a progressive academic programme with top class resources on the picturesque Nagoya University of Commerce and Business campus in the suburbs of Nagoya. Students will acquire highly developed thinking and personal skills which will allow them to have multiple career pathway options both in Japan and abroad. They will live and study in an international community with a wealth of cultures, perspectives and experiences for them to draw from as they hone their qualities as leaders and team players with the capacity to shape the future global society.
Driven by our Educational Philosophy, 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.
The NIC programme is unique in Japan as while most private school schools are divided along the lines of the curriculum being either 'international' or 'Japanese', NIC represents a unique hybrid of these as shown by our dual-diploma graduation, giving our international students the opportunity to either go on to university studies in Japan or return to a university in their home country. All the traditional subjects will be offered at NIC, along with some more progressive ones, such as Approaches to Learning Skills and Design Thinking, in order to prepare students for the intellectual rigours of the IB Diploma Programme. While the NIC programme is by design a highly academic one, there is also a course on Japanese Popular Culture in the students' first year of study both in recognition of the spread of Japanese culture worldwide but also to assist international students with the transition to Japan and its diverse culture.
The Student Support Programme at NIC is comprehensive and includes Well-being, Recreational, Counselling, Careers and Academic support initiatives to cater for every aspect of the students journey at NIC from orientation to graduation and on to university. Our support model is strongly tied to student personal development so that over the three years students become both skilful and empowered being able to lead, collaborate and advocate across cultures as the circumstances demand. Moving to, and living in, another culture is never easy but the support is here to ensure a smooth transition and ongoing growth of our students and at the end of the programme our students can claim to be interculturally intelligent and competent.
In light of the recent developments in relation to the pandemic worldwide, it is understandable that many parents will be reluctant to send their children overseas. However, the location of the NIC school and dormitory is unique in that the students are securely and safely located on the campus of Nagoya University of Commerce and Business with all facilities self-contained within. All facets of student life are catered for on the campus and the dormitory accommodation is compulsory in order to reduce risks. Should flare-ups of disease occur in the general society, lockdown is readily achievable with a minimum of disruption to student studies. At NIC we go to great lengths to ensure that steps and procedures are in place and the campus environment is as safe as it can possibly be.
