Points to Note When Selecting a Course

  • You can apply to enrol in one academic course at the VSE (commencing in August/September 2020). To apply for enrolment in more than one course, you should seek approval from the VSE Central Office by emailing apru.vse@cuhk.edu.hk
  • Courses from Keio University and Osaka University are non-academic credit courses therefore do not bear academic credit for students and no transcript will be provided upon successful completion of the course


No additional fees are required to take VSE courses. Pay your regular tuition to your home university only. Any additional fees, if required, they will be detailed under each course or program


Students should register their interest at http://unsw.aglobal.education/st-application by 2 weeks prior to the host institution deadline (1 week for August deadlines and by 16 August 2020 for Chulalongkorn University ). You can view each host institution deadline here: http://vse.apru.org/academics/#course

Note: If you wish to transfer credit for the program, the Transfer of Credit Form must be completed and signed by the faculty/course authorities and submitted to our office by the application deadline. For more information see - Applying for credit and funding for your overseas short course

Risk assessment

All programs involve some degree of risk to participants. If you choose to source a provider on your own, please remember to do some research on them first and ensure that they are a legitimate organisation and that the product they offer will definitely meet your requirements. Students are therefore advised to undertake their own risk assessment before departure and any participation in these programs is at their own risk.
