NIC is the only boarding school in central Japan accredited by the education ministry to offer two qualifications: the Japanese high school diploma and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme

Studying at NUCB International College (NIC) provides high school students with a unique opportunity to study in a progressive academic program with top-class resources on the picturesque Nagoya University of Commerce and Business campus in the suburbs of Nagoya. The school accepts a wide range of students from Japan and abroad and implements leadership education. All subjects apart from language classes are taught in English, and all our students have the opportunity to be awarded the Bilingual IBDP Diploma.

NUCB International College is the only boarding school in central Japan that is accredited by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology to offer two qualifications: the Japanese high school diploma and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.

NIC’s vision and mission statements say, “We aim to be the premier international boarding school in the Asia region, cultivating a ‘frontier spirit’ and academic excellence in creating pathways to ethical leadership” and producing graduates with “the ability to bridge the gap between international cultures.”

The school’s spacious, nature-rich campus nurtures the potential of every student. In addition to academics, students can enjoy a fruitful student life through various activities such as sports and cultural activities. The all-in-one campus is one in which students can enjoy their irreplaceable youth by developing their personal growth and at the same time forming deep human relationships. They will live and study in an international community with a wealth of cultures, perspectives and experiences to draw from as they hone their qualities as leaders and team players with the capacity to shape the future of global society.

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 personalized 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 is offered in July, and a preparatory course (the Bridging Programme) for September admission is offered from April.

Safe boarding environment: The school provides a safe and secure coeducational boarding environment following 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 with peers from different cultures and experiences, students develop the qualities required of the next generation of leaders.
