Overseas Student Exchange Program

Overseas Student Exchange Program

Student Exchange Program under the Auspices of the Inter-University Exchange Project

We foster leadership skills in students to achieve the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) throughout the Pacific Islands. This is carried out through the Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) project in conjunction with the following institutions: University of Hawaii, University of Guam, Palau Community College, College of Micronesia-FSM and College of the Marshall Islands.

Study Abroad Opportunities

Under the auspices of the project, Ryudai has student exchanges with 13 universities throughout the Pacific. Students receive financial support and scholarships by the university and outside organizations (the availabilities of financial support and scholarships are limited).
