An exchange program is a formal relationship with an overseas university that allows Evergreen and that institution to exchange students and faculty on a one-for-one basis. Evergreen currently has five “sister schools” that allow for Evergreen to send two students per year for overseas study, and for the sister school to send two students per year to Evergreen. Alternatively, Evergreen might send four students for a single semester or receive more students for a single quarter. Evergreen students pay their home tuition rate to Evergreen and receive a tuition waiver at the overseas school. Students are still responsible for cost-of-living expenses, travel costs and some smaller fees at the sister school. Evergreen students register either with a special Course Record Number created specifically for the designated exchange, or in the case of the Japan programs, through an Individual Learning Contract process.

China: Xing Wei College Exchange : The exchange program with Xing Wei College is one of our newer partnerships, established in 2016. Students can elect to study either fall or spring semesters, or for an entire academic year from August through June. Xing Wei takes a unique approach among universities in China in that its curriculum is offered to all students entirely in English, meaning its courses will be easily accessible for Evergreen students. Evergreen students can also arrange to study Mandarin Chinese at Xing Wei College in addition to other course work. Xing Wei is designed in a way that gives students a high level of input into the administration of the College, utilizing student committees to carry out many of its functions. Students select from a range of course work in the Humanities, Social Sciences or Sciences. There are also opportunities to arrange individualized study, not only for Chinese language instruction, but many other disciplinary areas as well. Xing Wei operates on a semester system; students can take up to 18 semester credits per term, which converts to about 27 quarter credits after transcript review. In many ways, Xing Wei College was intentionally modeled after Evergreen, thus allowing considerable flexibility in modes of learning. Xing Wei College is located on a beautifully manicured campus that spans both sides of the local river. For more information in English, see this link: http://en.xingwei.edu.cn/

As with all exchange programs, Evergreen students continue to pay their home tuition rate to Evergreen and will receive a tuition waiver at the host university. However, students will be responsible for all other travel and living expenses, as well as certain fees that may be assessed by the host institution. Estimated costs for an academic year on the Xing Wei College Exchange are $9,700, plus Evergreen tuition expenses.

 

Denmark: Roskilde University Exchange : The exchange program with Roskilde University was established in May 2014 and is one of Evergreen’s newest partnerships. Roskilde, like Evergreen, was founded on the principle that effective, meaningful, alternative approaches to learning exist beyond the traditional models. Group Project work at Roskilde is the central element in the learning model, comprising 50% of a student’s learning experience. Groups of students tackle various local, national, or international problems and bring various disciplinary perspectives to proposed solutions. Many of the Group Project options are in English, essentially a second language in Denmark. The other 50% of course work involves taking two or three individual content courses that support the project investigation. Students generally enroll for 30 ECTS credits per semester, which converts to 18-22 quarter credits, depending on class hours. Roskilde is located about 19 miles west of Copenhagen, with a population of about 49,000.

Japan: University of Hyogo Exchange : The exchange program with the University of Hyogo is over 30 years old. Students study from April through March using three Evergreen Individual Learning Contracts to structure their studies. Students typically focus on Japanese language study, cultural studies of all types, and a self-designed research project. Students arrange for an Evergreen faculty sponsor or sponsors over the course of their three contracts, self-designing their goals and activities with faculty guidance. Students utilize credit-bearing and audited course work at Hyogo, such as Japanese courses and more, to give structure to their study. They also conduct their independent project study within the contract. Each of the three contracts is valued at 12-16 credits per Evergreen quarter.

Students may choose to study Fall Semester (Sep-Dec) or Spring Semester (Mar-June) or for the entire Academic Year. Students typically focus on Korean language and cultural studies through the Korean Language Education Center, but other options include participation in the ASEAN Exchange Program (with approval), or for students with sufficient Korean language skills, integration into on-going academic courses, again, with approval. The university has about 12,000 students and nearly 600 faculty and staff, seven undergraduate schools with 50 majors, three graduate schools, research centers and more.
