When you think about what to do this summer, what comes to your mind? Is it catching-up on your academic workload by taking extra courses? How about doing some international travel and sight-seeing? Or experiencing a different culture by making new friends? Or how about having a valuable international work experience? At the Korea University International Summer Campus program you can do all these things and more… making your next summer the most productive, memorable and fun one yet!
Recognized as the leading summer program in Asia, Korea University’s International Summer Campus (KU ISC) program is a six-week condensed semester hosted on KU’s beautiful state-of-the-art campus, taught by foreign professors from prestigious universities from around the world. You can choose to take up to three courses from a selection of over 100, which, in most cases, are transferable towards your degree at your home institution. In addition to rigorous academics, also available is an excellent four-week internship opportunity at a Korean company where you can get real-life work experience in an Asian work environment to add to your resume.
The KU ISC also provides “buddy assistants” – local KU students that help organize social and cultural activities for you to feel at home and part of the KU family. From Korean traditional arts, a visit to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) outside of Seoul or to learning K-Pop dances, the KU ISC makes every effort to ensure that you are able to make the most of your summer in Korea. Each year more than 1,600 students from all over the world participate in the KU ISC – many return for a repeat experience the next year.
If you are looking for an intellectually stimulating, culturally fascinating and socially dynamic experience this summer, the KU ISC program is for you. We look forward to welcoming you to Korea University this summer!
