A group of non-Japanese and Japanese students at Nagoya University of Foreign Studies jointly published an English tabloid newspaper, called The NUFS Times, in September to deepen communication between the two communities.

The university in Nisshin, Aichi Prefecture, says it will support the effort with the intention that the newspaper will become a regular publication that can promote the institution.

The university says it takes in around 200 students from foreign countries each year, but since most only stay for about six to 12 months, they don't get enough chances to communicate with Japanese people.
