The APRU Virtual Student Exchange (VSE) Program makes international education accessible by allowing students to take academic courses and participate in co-curricular programs without the need to leave home. It opens up international education opportunities for all students of APRU member universities by providing an immersive virtual student exchange experience through digital technologies and platforms and creating encounters with new ideas, cultures, experts and students from around the world. Registration is free of charge.
APRU Becoming a Global Learner Leadership Series
Offered by University of California, Davis
In this free five-session learning series created by UC Davis in partnership with APRU, a cohort of undergraduate students will explore the concepts of culture, cultural values, identity, and power as well as engage in a deeper reflection on how they and others ‘make meaning’, evaluate intercultural situations, and deal with conflict.
Jan 29, 2021 to Mar 5, 2021
Friday 5pm – 6:30pm Pacific Standard Time (UTC-8)
Throughout the synchronous virtual sessions, students will gain global skills and understanding that will help prepare them to be leaders in a global world. Sessions will be facilitated by UC Davis Global Affairs staff and they will be interactive, with discussions, activities, and reflections.
Because participation will be limited to a small number of students (25-30) from across the APRU network, students will be able to make connections across the Asia-Pacific region and engage meaningfully with their peers.
We welcome a range of majors and backgrounds as these global skills are important regardless of your future career path.
Open to all students from APRU member universities. Applications will be considered on a first-come, first-serve basis, although we will also ensure that there is a balance of participants from different APRU institutions. Additionally, if you are selected, you must commit to attending all five synchronous online sessions in the series.
