[Bachelor and Master Degree] The International Summer Session (ISS) at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies (HUFS) ,South Korea

The International Summer Session (ISS) at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies (HUFS), offered continuously for 15 years since its establishment in 2003, provides a unique opportunity to all those who want to deepen their understanding of Korean and East Asian societies and the sources of their current trends. International students may increase their Korean language proficiency through ISS language classes, and domestic Korean students have the opportunity to enhance their English language proficiency by studying in an international environment where all courses are taught in English.

One of the unique features of the HUFS ISS program is that both international and domestic Korean students study side-by-side in the same classrooms on a daily basis, sharing in project work, extra-curricular and free-time activities. ISS international students come from a variety of countries, either as independent students or as exchange students from partner universities in Sweden, France, Germany, Poland, Spain, Russia, Kazakhstan, China, Japan, Vietnam, Thailand, Italy, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Hong Kong, Singapore, Mexico, the U.S., Canada, Australia and more. This co-mingling of students of many national origins enriches the learning environment for all.

ISS provides students with a carefully planned curriculum and the courses are taught by the most prominent scholars in the field of Korean and Asian Studies, many of whom are invited from prestigious foreign universities to teach for the summer session. The faculty and students together create a cosmopolitan atmosphere which is conducive to an in-depth understanding of Korean and Asian societies.

The summer session is open to currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students, as well as to independent scholars interested in the field of Korean and Asian Studies.

    (Under special circumstances, qualified high school graduates who will be enrolled in a university program by the Fall 2019 semester may petition for acceptance into the program.) 
  • English Proficiency
    • 1) Students currently attending a university where English is the medium of instruction or who have graduated from an English medium high school do not need to submit proof of English proficiency. 
    • 2) Students who graduated from high school in Korea, as well as students who are enrolled at non-English speaking universities must submit proof of a CBT TOEFL score above 197 (Internet Based Test IBT 71), TOEIC score of 700, or a HUFS FLEX score of 625. 
      • These language proficiency requirements have been established to ensure that all students registered for ISS are able to adequately participate in and benefit from the instructional activities, which are all provided in English. 
      • If a student does not have a TOEFL, TOEIC or FLEX score, alternative verification of sufficient English proficiency may also be provided in the form of a letter from a university professor familiar both with expected standards in an English-medium university program and with the student's ability to perform in an English-medium academic atmosphere. 
      • The professor's letter should explicitly certify that the student has a sufficiently high proficiency in English to be able to actively participate in a program of study where lectures, class discussions and exams are conducted in English and where term papers are expected to be written in academic English.
