Program Overview

Affordable, virtual, student exchange created just for you! Courses start between August and September for fall semester courses and between January and April for spring semester courses.

The University of Oregon, in collaboration with the Associate of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU), is offering a truly international education experience this year. There are more than 60 virtual academic courses to choose from.

The APRU Virtual Student Exchange (VSE) Program, led by The Chinese University of Hong Kong, makes international education accessible by allowing you to take academic courses and participate in co-curricular programs without the need to leave home. It opens up international education for everyone by providing an immersive virtual student exchange experience through digital technologies and platforms and creating encounters with new ideas, cultures, experts, academics, and students from around the world.

Enroll in one academic course in the VSE alongside your University of Oregon classes. If you wish to enroll in more than one course, you should seek approval from the VSE Central Office by emailing apru.vse@cuhk.edu.hk. Course enrollment is subject to final approval from your home university and the course offering university.

Academic credits will be provided by the course offering universities. Credits earned from VSE academic courses may be transferred back to the home university, subject to home university approval.

Each VSE course offering university has a specific application period. Have questions? Reach out to an advisor!
