English-Taught Programs

Because of its internationally-recognized achievements and established academic standing, Nagoya University is among the few universities selected by the Japanese government to offer international programs designed for international students. The objectives of these programs are to strengthen the international competitiveness of Japanese higher education and to offer a first-rate educational opportunity to high-achieving students worldwide.

Since 2011, Nagoya University’s flagship departments started offering the "G30 International Programs" which are full-degree programs taught entirely in English. Through a multi-disciplinary general education curriculum, these programs aim to cultivate ethical leaders who are able to develop innovative solutions through inquiry and analysis, with strong communication skills to be productive members of our global society.
