International Summer Semester

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 selects the most intriguing theme every 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).

SKKU Office of International Relations has finally decided not to hold the International Summer Semester 2020 has been cancelled due to COVID-19.
