NIG is dedicated to providing a friendly and supportive environment for students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty from abroad. Current and recent NIG members hail from Australia, Bolivia, Canada, China, Ecuador, France, Hungary, India, Iran, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Romania, Russia, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Taiwan, UK, US, and Vietnam.

The NIG Group for Internationalization Promotion (GIP) assists new NIG members from abroad with their initial move to Japan and makes sure they can start to work efficiently - afterwards, of course, we support them throughout their stay at NIG. Our support ranges from assisting with visa issues, finding accommodations in the Mishima area, setting up a bank account/utilities, finding medical and child care as well as assistance with communications within and outside of our institute.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about working/ studying at NIG.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
