UCR Workshops: "Studying and Living in an American Research University"
The APRU Virtual Student Exchange (VSE) Program, led by The Chinese University of Hong Kong, 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 for all students 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.
Through collaboration with APRU VSE Program, UCR is offering a special 10-week series of workshops on "Studying and Living in an American Research University." Students will learn about the American university system, behaviors and expectations in the classroom, employment options and career development, leadership opportunities and collaboration on campus, the basics of American culture and adjusting to new cultural environments, and other useful information to help them be successful when they study in the U.S.
