About FiSSC

The Fukuoka International Student Support Center (FiSSC)

Fukuoka International Student Support Center’s Administrative Council* was established to promote the numerous attractive features of Fukuoka, and to help attract and nurture diverse global talent.

With academia, municipalities, industry and local communities joining hands, this student support organization was the first of its kind in Japan.

FiSSC supports international students in their study lives, daily lives and in employment, serving as a second home, and contributes to producing talented individuals who will flourish on the world stage while maintaining their connections with Fukuoka Prefecture.

*Fukuoka International Student Support Center’s Administrative Council is run by the staff of the International Student Department of the Fukuoka International Exchange Foundation. The Fukuoka International Exchange Foundation is engaged in promoting exchange with Asian nations, nurturing global human resources, assisting foreign residents in Fukuoka, promoting international awareness among local residents and building overseas networks with Fukuoka Prefecture Citizens Associations (Kenjinkai).

Our Mission

Fukuoka was once an ancient gateway for the islands of Japan, where people exchanged goods and culture with the continent and beyond. Even today, Fukuoka Prefecture continues to play its role as a focal point that connects Japan and the rest of Asia. The numerous universities in Fukuoka have helped it to attract attention as a global and national human resource development hub and a core for personnel exchange in Asia. With a new era of advances in the globalization of economics, technological innovation and information, the need to take the initiative in attracting, fostering and producing diverse and highly-skilled human resources is increasingly important—not only for the development of each local community and Japan, but for all of Asia. The Fukuoka International Student Support Center (FiSSC), managed by an administrative council of people selected from academia, local municipalities, the business community and private international exchange associations, offers comprehensive support to international students. This support ranges from promotional activities overseas aimed at attracting international students to Japan, and assistance with living, interpersonal relations and employment while students attend school in Fukuoka, to post-graduation networking support. FiSSC contributes to the development of the diverse skills used by individuals to serve communities, and to producing talented individuals who will play active roles in the global arena while taking advantage of close ties with Fukuoka Prefecture.
