About HPU Student Exchange Programs & Study Abroad

Hawai'i Pacific University, as part of its emphasis on international education and global citizenship, has affiliations with various academic institutions in Asia, Australia, Central and South America and Europe. Through these partnerships, students from HPU are able to study abroad as exchange students and in return, HPU receives incoming exchange students from these affiliated universities. HPU participants in the Student Exchange Program enroll in Student Exchange (SE) courses at HPU and pay HPU tuition. This enables exchange students going abroad to use financial aid and scholarships to fund expenses, while also guaranteeing that courses taken abroad are accepted to fulfill HPU degree requirements. You may review our current partner institutions by returning to the Study Abroad homepage and searching by academic level and then by country.


6|Page

Getting Started

Being enthusiastic about studying abroad is only a very important beginning to an opportunity of a life time. Below you will find a brief overview of the process to become an exchange participant through HPU and it's partner institutions. Complete the Outbound Student Application to get an interview with Dr. Davidann, Director of Exchange Porgrams. At this meeting, Dr. Davidann will review the exchange program with you. Please bring a onepage grid version of your academic degree plan with you (available from the Academic Advising Center, 1164 Bishop St., Suite 123 (UB), phone: 544-9355). This plan will be used to see if the courses you need are available at your intended exchange campus. Also, print out a copy of your unofficial HPU academic transcript from your Pipeline account and bring it to the meeting. If it appears there is a suitable student exchange site for you to study at during your preferred time period, Dr. Davidann will review your coursework and grades to determine academic eligibility. The key to determining a partner university is looking for that which offers the courses you need that match courses in your HPU degree plan. If a university match is found, a Memo of Understanding is drawn up, explaining how your foreign course work will be used to substitute for specific courses in your HPU degree plan. Identifying these courses enables you to formally begin the process of becoming an exchange student.

How to Apply: 1. Complete an online Student Exchange Program data sheet listing your contact information, major, etc. 2. Have a qualifying interview with Dr. Davidann ·

be prepared to discuss your motives for studying abroad and your degree plan

·

identify an exchange partner university which has courses that can be used for your HPU degree

· complete a Memo of Understanding (MOU) verifying your foreign coursework and HPU equivalents 3. Now that you have found a partner university, you should educate yourself about where you will be going by: · contacting students who have been to or are from the school and country you want to attend and get information about their personal experiences ·

go on-line and read the Internet site about the school you want to attend


7|Page ·

prepare a budget to plan out your costs while studying abroad

4. You are now ready to formally apply to your host school, by… · completing relevant application documents, which may include personal and family background information, educational experiences, housing preferences, health review, source of financing, language competency (if foreign language proficiency is required), personal essay and other forms. · Make sure you complete your application documents and promptly send them to the host school. Soon thereafter you will receive a formal acceptance notice—note: if HPU nominates you to be an exchange student at a particular university, you are automatically accepted at that university under the reciprocity terms of the exchange agreement. Your application documents should include the following items (may vary depending upon the university you are applying to): -

Host institution’s application

-

Statement of purpose (usually an essay detailing why you want to attend the host university)

-

HPU transcript

-

Copy of passport

-

Letter of certification (request one from the Office of Exchange Programs)

-

Proof of health insurance and financial security

-

Extra passport style photos (for certificates of eligibility)

-

Other documents may apply

5. Now that your application papers have been mailed out, you can now do the following: · register at HPU in the appropriate Student Exchange (SE) courses applicable to the time period you will be abroad. By enrolling in (usually 5) SE courses, you are officially registered at HPU. SE courses are what make an exchange different from a regular study abroad: the credit you earn overseas is directly used for what you might have taken at HPU. In other words, there is no need to worry about transferring credits. SE enrollment also permits you to use any scholarship, loan or financial aid you have for your study abroad expenses (since you are registered at HPU), even though your studies will be done abroad. *Note: since participation in the Student exchange program requires pre-qualifications, you need to get from the Student Exchange office a “permission to register” form to enroll in SE courses. On-line registration in SE courses is not possible otherwise.

Health Insurance for Study Abroad

The Office of International Exchange & Study Abroad recommends that students apply for ISO Student Health Insurance (isoabroad.com) should their own plans do not cover studying abroad. Health insurance that can cover you while overseas on a study abroad is MANDATORY. Below are several tips and considerations about health insurance. Reviewing Your Medical History & Needs Before Going Abroad: Your doctor or nurse can advise you on what special precautions to take based on your medical history and where you are studying abroad. You may need to go to a special travel health clinic to get clear advice on medical care abroad and what challenges you may face.

Special Needs: If you have any special needs, check with the study abroad administrator to determine how he/she can best help you. Regulations for accessibility may not be similar or existent in other countries as they are in the U.S. Check to determine if accommodations, like wheelchair ramps, are provided in all modes of transportation and to determine if the housing facilities are equipped to serve people with special needs.

Availability of Medical Care: The type of medical care available will vary from country to country. In some countries it will seem similar to the type of care you find in the U.S. In others, finding an English speaking doctor or appropriate medical facility might be difficult. You should ask your program sponsor whether they can provide advice on available medical care and support abroad.

Support Services for Medical Care: Ask your program staff about their capability to provide you with medical care assistance. Does this staff speak both the local language and English? Do they have a list of the best available local medical facilities? Also, find out if someone in the staff or administration is trained to handle emergency situations.

Prescriptions: If you require prescription medications while abroad, you will very likely need to verify this requirement with a doctor's note. You may need a specially notarized prescription if the pharmacy you go to does not recognize U.S. prescriptions. You may also need to have your prescription translated into the language of your destination country in order to have it filled properly. Let your doctor know that you intend to travel abroad so that he/she can provide the appropriate documentation you will need to fill the prescription while away from home. Also, tell your program provider about your medical needs so that they can give you more detailed information on what you might require while abroad. What Insurance Covers: Know exactly what is and is not covered by your insurance plan. For example, high-risk sports injuries, dental care, and optical care are sometimes not covered by basic medical


10 | P a g e insurance. Also, if certain pre-existing conditions are excluded, check on the exact definition of "preexisting." Insurance Provided By Program Sponsor: Some programs include insurance as part of their program fee and have pre-planned insurance arrangements for their participants. Purchasing their insurance may make it easier for the program staff to assist you while abroad. However, you should still look closely at the limitations in its coverage. If the program does not offer insurance, and/or you think the program insurance is not sufficient, you should consider purchasing additional travel/study abroad insurance.

Other Aspects to Consider: These include the financial limits of coverage, whether your insurance applies during independent travel or vacation, what countries it includes, whether evacuation and repatriation is included, the policy’s start and end dates, and whether you will have to pay first for treatment and be reimbursed later by your insurance company.

Accreditation is designed to provide a guarantee of professional and substantive standards by evaluating such factors as programme design, ease of study ('studyability'), quality of teaching and professional relevance.

The accreditation process is carried out by external accrediting agencies. The Berlin School of Economics and Law was quick to introduce external accreditation for its degree programmes. As a result, nearly all the University's programmes have been successfully awarded the initial accreditation stamp.
