The SKKU International Summer Semester (ISS) is an unforgettable summer experience. 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 ISS is an annual summer program that lasts for four weeks. It singles out the single most intriguing theme of the year, which is then threaded throughout every course to create a unique learning environment. Additionally, eminent professors from around the world share their knowledge and insights with the highly motivated international students of the SKKU ISS. A tuition waiver is given to exchange students taking part in the ISS before or after their regular exchange semester(s).
The summer of 2017 marks the 10th ISS at SKKU. Since 2008 the ISS has been organized around current and multidisciplinary themes.
“Culture, Business and Technology in East Asia” (2008)
“Sustainable Global Prosperity” (2009)
“Recovery & Prosperity: Post Crisis & New Future” (2010)
“Challenges for the Next Decade” (2011)
“Sustainable Global Values - Convergence, Divergence and Collaboration” (2012)
“Designing a Sustainable Future” (2013)
“Mapping the Future for Shared Prosperity” (2014)
“New Paradigms of Sustainability - Equality and Collaboration” (2015)
“Global Synergy - Innovating through Collaboration” (2016)
“New Experience, New Engagement” (2017)
These themes are intended to inspire rather than restrict students’ academic initiative.
