Program Overview


The SKKU Winter International Student Experience (WISE) is a unique 3-week academic program dedicated to sharing and experiencing the fascinating story of Seoul, Korea’s 600-year-old capital.


The history of Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU) is deeply entwined with that of Seoul: founded as a royal university in 1398, SKKU is now a strongly industry-focused university, nurturing the talent and technology that is powering Korea’s economic ascendancy.


It is a legacy that is reflected in the program’s curriculum, which is aimed at helping students understand the forces that have shaped and continue to transform Asia’s most dynamic metropolis.
