Korea University

Korea Winter          
The capital city of Seoul is located in the northwest corner of South Korea.  It is a bustling metropolis of 13 million people and a center of culture, finance, politics, and entertainment. The combination of centuries of history and a cutting-edge IT industry provides Seoul with an interesting contrast of old and new influences.

Korea University
Founded in 1905, Korea University (KU) is considered to be one of the best private institutions of higher education in Asia with a strong emphasis on excellence in teaching and research and serving Korean society. The university is centrally located in the hilly Anam-dong section of Seoul with an attractive parkland campus. KU is a multicultural institution with more than 5,000 international students contributing to an overall student population of about 28,500. Subways and microbuses provide easy transportation from the campus to all parts of the city.

Korea 1

UB students can participate in Korea University's International Winter Campus (IWC) program. This three-week program includes a variety of challenging courses taught by distinguished faculty from prestigious universities around the world.
Students will enroll in a minimum of one course worth 3 credits and have the option to take an additional course worth 3 credits for a total of 6 credits. Each class offers a full semester-load of coursework condensed into three weeks. With the exception of Korean language classes, all classes are taught in English and no prior knowledge of Korean is necessary for enrollment in these courses. Korea University is an AACSB accredited institution.
Classes are held Monday through Friday. Students may select courses from IWC Session 1, spanning from December 27 through January 17. IWC courses cover a range of subjects (each worth 3 credits). Click here for detailed course information.
