Welcome! 歡迎! Bienvenido! Bem-vinda! добро пожаловать!

VCU’s School of Education (SOE) is committed to promoting education beyond our borders. As part of that, we're proud to present our Asian-American Educational Studies Center – a collaborative opportunity for faculty and students here and in China to work and learn together in the areas of research, teaching, service and professional development.

International Students: Online Application and Information

Each of our programs has unique admissions requirements. Please review the individual academic program admissions page for support with your online application, statement of intent, resume/CV and other required materials requirements.

If you are applying from one of our Chinese International Partnership schools, please see our Direct Admit resources for your application.


Several activities of this center are complete, including an early childhood education/early elementary practicum and a preK-20 program, both hosted by SOE in spring and summer 2019, respectively. Planned collaboration opportunities also include teaching opportunities for SOE faculty in China, a research conference at Jiangnan University in the fall, and a joint international research lab.
