Immerse yourself in Kiwi culture with a study tour

For more than 20 years Nagoya University of Foreign Studies students have visited Massey University to complete a four-week English communication and cultural understanding course delivered by Massey’s Centre for Professional and Continuing Education (PaCE).

The students from the private university in Nissin City, Japan, attend intensive English language classes to improve their proficiency and enjoy field trips and cultural excursions around the lower North Island.

Staying with homestay families gives the students the opportunity to be fully immersed in English and to experience New Zealand life and culture. The largest group to date was 80 students.

Upon successful completion of the programme, students qualify for study credits at Nagoya University of Foreign Studies.

Philip Rush, Nagoya’s Director of the International Programmes, has visited Massey several times and accompanied groups of students.

"It is always a real pleasure to come to Massey," Professor Rush says. "The host families are always so welcoming; the Massey staff look after us like royalty; the teachers give our students a real Kiwi experience with their humour and kind approach. We are very grateful to all at Massey for supporting our long and friendly relationship, and long may it continue."

PaCE Director Andrea Flavel says the centre appreciates the strong enduring friendship between the two institutions. "It is the commitment of both universities to the partnership that has made it such an ongoing success."
