Our Services

International Training

We invite government administrators and technical officers from overseas to carry out training in various specialized fields. Based on the needs, requests, and background of the client and participants, we formulate an appropriate training curriculum that combines lectures, observation tours, and exercises, and provide one-stop support for training implementation, evaluation, and follow-up. At the training site, JICE coordinators accompany the participants and ensure smooth communication, from interpretation of lectures to facilitation of the training. We emphasize training that emphasizes active learning, in which participants learn independently through exchanges of opinions, presentations, and reflections.

International Exchange

We plan and operate international exchange programs that connect people from overseas and Japan, especially the younger generation, to promote mutual understanding and build friendship and trust beyond differences in society, culture, religion, and lifestyle. For the invitation and dispatch Programs, JICE creates and implements programs that combine courtesy visits, school exchanges, company visits, discussions, homestays, and more. On site, JICE "coordinators" provide support for communication in each language. In addition, JICE provides accommodation and meals that take into consideration the religion and custom of each participating country.

International Student Service

We support the daily life of the international students accepted by universities and other educational institutions conducting academic monitoring, and providing emergency response services while in Japan. We provide timely support in cooperation with the international students themselves and related organizations, such as orientation upon arrival in Japan, apartment hunting, assistance in starting up daily life, procedures at government offices, checking academic progress and meeting with academic advisors, health counseling and accompaniment to hospitals, safety checks in the event of natural disasters, and provision of information on local events. We carefully attend to international students and support them so that they can enjoy a safe, secure, and fulfilling study abroad experience. We also provide consultation on local support before coming to Japan, Japanese language training, job hunting support, etc.
