    Spend the summer in one of the world’s most vibrant capital cities, Seoul, while studying at the distinguished Korea University. Known for its outstanding academic programs and beautiful campus, students can take a range of comprehensive courses, all offered in English, ensuring they still meet graduation requirements. 

    Throughout the program, participants will have the chance to take part in fun activities designed to introduce them to the many facets of Korean culture outside of the classroom.

    In-person opportunity:

    Students will spend six weeks in Korea studying at the esteemed Korea University. These six weeks include two weeks of mandatory quarantine. After two weeks, students will move into the provided dorms at Korea University and attend University Orientation. Their course load varies from one to three courses they will select from a wide variety of disciplines(also available in English). The university will also immerse the students by assigning local university students to organize social and cultural activities. To be eligible, students must have at least a 2.5 GPA and be enrolled at a two or four year institution. High school students can also apply but they must select classes from a predetermined pre-college course list. 


    2021 Remote Option:

    Students will select one course offered by Korea University and take it through the online format. They can expect to earn three college credits. You will be able to learn at your own pace and still feel involved through virtual cultural events. Students must have their own computer and reliable internet access.
