Short Term Study Tours (non-credit)
COE currently works with specific partners to create 1-2 week experiences for students from our partner universities, focused on particular areas of study in education. These are not open-enrollment programs as we are not yet at the capacity to be able to offer open-enrollment types of short-term non-credit programs, nor are we taking on any new partners to deliver short-term programs. There are, however, other units on the UH Mānoa campus that do offer short-term programs in other areas of study that you may be interested in, such as International Programs at UH Mānoa’s Outreach College and Hawai‘i English Language Program (HELP) at the Department of Second Language Studies.
(For credit-based semester or year-long opportunities, you can come and take courses at COE through the Mānoa International Exchange Office (MIX) Inbound Programs. During the application process, be sure to request to have your home department be one of the departments in the COE and take our courses for which you are eligible. As a traditional exchange student, you are allowed to take courses from any department on campus (EXCEPT for Law, Medicine, Nursing and Dental Hygiene). You may also want to consider enrolling in courses during summer sessions through Outreach College as another option for credit courses. Availability of COE courses through this program varies from year to year, so be sure to check prior to applying.)
