Welcome

The International Summer Semester (ISS) at Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU) is a truly unique academic experience.  Taking place on both the historic Seoul campus of SKKU and the state-of-the-art Suwon campus, the ISS is a journey of intellectual, personal and collaborative discovery.  The Korean and international students and faculty that you will meet here will provide you with an exceptional opportunity to broaden your horizons and make new and lasting friendships.

 

As one of Asia’s oldest yet most cutting-edge research universities, SKKU connects the past, present, and future through a unique balance of tradition and innovation.  Within our university, the ISS is one of the most important channels of global academic exchange.  In 2014, the ISS received 1,669 students from 84 different universities.  This makes the ISS one of the most successful and diverse summer programs in Asia.

 

This summer, I invite you to become a part of SKKU’s 600-year-old legacy.  Experience the diversity and dynamism of Asia first-hand and discover Seoul, one of the world’s greatest cities, and Suwon, the epicenter of Korea's technology revolution.  My advice: take this opportunity with both hands!

 

Welcome to Korea and welcome to SKKU!
