Programs

A. Exchange Student Program

Within a valid time period as stipulated by the exchange program contract, both institutions cooperating programs send an equal number of students to the partner institution. Participating exchange students do not pursue academic degrees, but rather undertake advanced studies for a year or semester. At the overseas institution, exchange students may select classes related to their major, and any others they may be interested in. After the exchange student returns to his/her home school, the student’s home institution will then evaluate the exchange student’s performance according to his/her grades at the exchange university, awarding full or partial course credits. In most cases, the participating exchange institutions waive student tuition.

Participating institution-level exchange institutions include: Albany State University of New York (USA), the University of Oklahoma (USA), the University of Calgary (Canada), the University of New South Wales (Australia), Cardiff University (UK), the University of Munich (Germany), the University of Toulouse (France), the University of Zurich (Switzerland), Waseda University (Japan), Hokkaido University (Japan), Seoul National University (Korea), Taiwan University, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, etc.

B. Visiting Student Program

BNU also sends fee-paying visiting students to study at overseas universities. Such participants do not pursue academic degrees, but rather complete a semester or a year of advanced studies abroad. At the overseas institution, exchange students may select classes related to their major, and any others they may be interested in. After the visiting student returns to his/her home school, the student’s home institution will then evaluate the visiting student’s performance according to his/her grades and course selection, awarding full course credits. In most cases, students will be responsible for paying their own tuition at the overseas institution. The Visiting Student Program’s participating institutions include: the University of California, Los Angeles (USA), Barnard College (USA), Emporia State University (USA), the University of Auckland (New Zealand), etc.

D. Short-term program

BNU and its foreign institution partners have especially designed short-term programs for international students so that these students may participate in short-term study and visitation. Most of these programs have been designed with the purpose of giving students the opportunity to engage in study and communication abroad, while enabling students to experience different cultures and broaden their horizons. Select institutions have also arranged specialized academic courses of study as part of their short-term programs. Students usually participate in short-term programs at their own expenses.
