The International Summer Semester (The Seoul campus of Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU))

Country: Korea;

Deadline: 12.06.2014



The International Summer Semester (ISS) is a 4 week summer experience that you will never forget. By bringing together students and faculty from Korea and around the world, the ISS is not only academically stimulating; it also offers an opportunity to make new friends and to discover Seoul and Korea.

The Seoul campus of Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU) is located close to the old city center in one of Asia’s largest, safest and most dynamic cities. Seoul is home to some of Asia’s best universities, Korea’s government and broadcast media, numerous multinational corporations and a quarter of the entire Korean population.

SKKU's Suwon campus is located in the heart of Korea's "Silicon Valley", which is home to many innovative start-up and spin-off companies, as well as Samsung Electronics, the world's largest technology company. Surrounded by greenery and served by its own subway station, the Suwon Campus offers a relaxed environment and easy access to southern Seoul, including Gangnam.

The summer of 2014 marks the 7th ISS at SKKU. Since 2008 the ISS has been organized around current and multidisciplinary themes, such as “Culture, Business and Technology in East Asia” (2008) and “Recovery & Prosperity: Post Crisis & New Future” (2010). This year’s theme is “Mapping the Future for Shared Prosperity”. These themes are intended to inspire and not to restrict, students’ academic initiative. Classes focus on the theme and many other interesting subjects.
