Prepare to Go Abroad

Japan is one of the many countries you can travel to through NIC’s Study Abroad program.

The Study Abroad Handbook has been created by NIC students to help NIC students going abroad to get the most out of their educational experience. Browse the subjects for important information and travel tips.


Taking learning to another country, with its differences in geography, language and ways of knowing, is a valued and sought after opportunity - one which opens doors to seeing the world in new ways. Travel is an adventure and one which asks the adventurer to be open to new experiences, to suspend judgment and look at circumstances in new ways. The more I travel the more I take the chance to look at the world from difference perspectives, the less I know that the way I see the world is right and the more I want to understand how others see the world.

It is the rare person who comes home from a study abroad experience who is not changed as a result of that experience. You will see, do and think things new to you. People you meet randomly or purposefully will open your mind and your heart to seeing the world in new ways. Expect change. Embrace difference. Enjoy the adventure.

North Island College’s role in your study abroad is to provide you with the information and support you need to have the best learning experience possible. Count on us to support you, and let us know how we can help.
