International Summer Campus, KU, Korea

Korea University International Summer Campus (KU ISC) provides an excellent opportunity for students to learn about Korea through academic and cultural immersion during the summer months. It offers one semester’s load of work condensed into six weeks and four weeks, during which renowned academics teach both domestic and international students. This program is open to current college students who wish to study in Korea but may not be able to do so during the regular academic year.

The core of ISC rests in the quality of its courses, faculty members and students. Academic credits earned at ISC are recognized worldwide and are typically transferred to the students’ home institutions. About 120 course offerings cover a wide range of subjects pertaining to international issues, with a particular emphasis on Business, Economics, Humanities, Sociology, Fine Art, International Relations, Science and Korean Studies. International faculty members from prestigious universities in the US, Europe and Asia provide students with world-class education and research experience.

4-week & 6-week Track

KU ISC offers a special 4-week course track program designed for those who are not able to participate in our standard 6-week program due to a time conflicts with their summer plans. Also, it is possible to combine a 4-week track course with a 6-week track course. The only differences between the two programs are the program period, class time, and the number of courses. There is no difference in tuition and credits.
