Level of Support: Nagasaki University of Foreign Studies, Nagasaki, Japan
On-Site Staff:This program is administered by Nagasaki University of Foreign Studies JASIN (Japan Studies in Nagasaki). They have local staff who are there to assist students as they transition to Japan. They will provide an orientation at the beginning of the program, they arrange cultural programming, a guided tour of Nagasaki and other cultural events. Some of those events/tours may be at an additional cost to students. The JASIN staff will also work to place students in the accommodation that they prefer.
The JASIN program will also arrange a language buddy for you. This will allow you to practice your Japanese and they will be able to practice their English.
Health & Disability Resources:The JASIN staff will provide you with health locations and contact information once you arrive on-site. There are local medical facilities to visit but if you are worried about a language barrier, you will need to ask the JASIN staff if they can recommend English speaking doctors.
Mental health resources may be more difficult to come by. If you are interested in seeing a therapist, when abroad, you should contact your Study Abroad Coordinator to begin making arrangements.
The JASIN program will do their best to accommodate any disabilities, but services cannot be guaranteed or may be different than what you are used to in the United States. Please contact the Study Abroad Coordinator to begin exploring what services might be available to you.
More Information:If you still have questions on level of support, you can contact the Study Abroad Coordinator, Jenna Krosch (firstname.lastname@example.org
After acceptance into the program, you will obtain more information about services, at your program location, in your program guide and in orientation materials.
