July 1 ~ August 5, 2014
Ajou University, a leading research university in Korea, welcomes international exchange students or individual applicants to Ajou International Summer School (AISS), a comprehensive short-term study abroad package for studies, cultural workshop, trips and social activities. It offers a unique opportunity for international students to experience Korean culture and tradition while taking courses during summer.
AISS is a month-long international summer school in the field of Korean Studies, Asian studies, International Studies and Business Administration taught in English. Not only are classes offered that can be transferred for credits, but there are al so special social and cultural activities, language programs, and other exciting events for students to explore and learn about Korea and its culture during the summer vacation. A three-day field trip to Jeju Island (World Heritage) is offered free to all participants prior to the official program starts. This allows students from all around the world to experience beautiful Korean nature and culture and help participants to build close friendship. AISS also provides a weekly Korean Culture Workshop where all students can learn Taekwondo (Korean martial art), traditional music, paper art and pottery making in the morning, and visit global Korean companies or historical and cultural sites in Korea in the afternoon.
The highlight of Ajou International Summer School is the global feature of participating students (1/3 from America, 1/3 from Europe, and 1/3 from Asia-Pacific region), diversity of excellent faculty members from both Ajou University and its overseas partner universities, and most of all, supportive and friendly Korean participants from Ajou University. About 100 international students from around 20 countries participate in Ajou International Summer School annually.
We try our best to give unforgettable summer experiences to international students. To guarantee the quality of the program, we maintain a good number of participants and try to welcome students from various countries around the world. So participants can know each other and build great friendship which can remain in their life permanently.
