Cross Cultural online exchange at Nagoya University of Foreign Studies (NUFS)

The virtual Cross Cultural Exchange program at Nagoya University of Foreign Studies in Japan is part of the Education Abroad Virtual International Passport (VIP) Program offering for the summer of 2021. An Education Abroad VIP program is an online experience that connects you with international opportunities and infuses your educational experience with a global foundation. Just as in a traditional Education Abroad program, you’ll take courses from instructors who are experts in the field and often are on the ground in the location you are learning about.
