Nvarchar- sql server to Varchar - mysq

I have been trying to use the migration toolkit in mysql workbench V6 to generate a schema from my sql server database. I am finding that for columns defined as nvarchar in sql server the toolkit generates a varchar column of twice the length in mysql even though the corresponding mysql column is utf8.

e.g a sqlserver NVARCHAR(255) is generating a VARCHAR(510) column in mysql. As the mysql column is utf8 this should only have a length of 255 matching the sqlserver column.

Please can you clarify whether my understanding is correct and that the column lengths generated are incorrect or provide an explanation for this?
