On September 21st, 2021, two new exchange students, Ms. Natasha Gorong and Ms. Tara Arnold started their studies at Sophia University Graduate School as part of the fifth term APIC-MCT Exchange Program.

Both students will spend two years researching at the graduate school’s global environmental studies program. The APIC-MCT Exchange Student Scholarship Fund was created upon the agreement of APIC, Sophia University, and MCT; the program focuses on the development of human resources from the perspective of environmental conservation. This graduate program enrolls students from the three nations of the Micronesia area into Sophia University Graduate School of Global Environmental Studies to obtain their masters degree in said field. From the program’s establishment in 2017, five students have graduated and currently three students are matriculating, spending their days researching their respective topics. Starting from the 2021 spring semester, Sophia University has restarted in-person classes, taking all necessary precautions to prevent the transmission and spread of COVID-19. Depending on the infection rate and other conditions, classes may return to remote-based learning.
