Apply until June 18th to an International Summer School Session in Seoul, Korea
If your plans for the summer have not yet been set in stone, we have some good news for you. It’s still possible to apply for the 4-week long International Summer Session in Seoul, Korea, organized by one of the top private universities of the country, the Hankuk University of Foreign Studies. The summer school takes place from July 13th to August 10th. The extended application period runs until June 18th.
Who is the summer school program for?
If you’re a student on a tight schedule and intend to graduate quickly, you might feel you don’t have time for a full-blown semester abroad. Maybe you do have the time, but you may have trouble getting the courses completed abroad counted towards your degree at home, while your home university still expects you to progress in your studies. Either way, studying abroad during a normal semester seems like an impossibility.
If that’s true for you and you’re still yearning to study abroad, then a summer school might be the perfect option for you.
For students, summer is typically a time for holidays, working, or sometimes more studying. A summer school is a way to make productive use of that time: you can study, explore a new country and get to know new people at the same time, all within the scope of just 4 weeks.
What will I learn?
The International Summer Session is particularly well suited for students interested in learning about Korean culture and language. Other topics include performing arts, culture, economy and business, Asian politics, contemporary society and international relations. Courses such as Human Rights in North Korea, Korean Food and Korean Cinema have also been popular among international students. All the courses are taught in English.
The program provides a unique opportunity for you to deepen your understanding of Korean and East Asian societies and the sources of their current trends. The summer program is truly international: you will be learning side by side from students from all over the world, including local students.
