President’s Greeting

If you are an international student studying at a graduate school in the Nagoya area or planning to study at a graduate school in the Nagoya area, Nagoya Ryugakusei Net is here to support you.

Studying abroad is made even richer when you combine educational research on a university campus with social interactions and experiences outside the campus. Our non-profit organization works with supporters in Nagoya and throughout Japan to support a wide range of exchanges with people who understand your aspirations and are interested in learning about your society and culture. We know many international graduate students who studied in the Nagoya area and are now active around the world. Would you like to become a member of this international network? We can help you.


Currently, more than 6,000 international students and visiting researchers are working in the greater Nagoya area. They have high aspirations and wish to contribute to their countries and the world through their learning and research. They want to become connecting bridges between their countries and Japan. In particular, graduate students and young researchers from overseas will work globally and take the lead in their countries. Their experience in Japan will be valuable assets for their future.

The members of the Nagoya RyuNet have practiced global activities as researchers, entrepreneurs, and professionals. Some advised international graduate students and young researchers from overseas, some conducted international business abroad, and some did cross-border practice. The Nagoya Ryunet has a bundle of global networks created by these people.

We understand the aspirations of international graduate students and young researchers and wish to enrich their research and daily lives in Japan by introducing them to attractive communities, professional networks, and business networks in Japan and abroad.

All relationships have the element of mutuality. Supporting and accompanying international graduate students and young researchers will benefit supporters. The supporters can learn from the unique experience of visitors, enhance their perspectives, and achieve a broader understanding of the world. The Nagoya RyuNet promotes mutual support and collaboration beyond national borders.
