Exchange Student Program and Visiting Student Program

The International Summer Program (ISP) presents a unique opportunity for international students to experience academic life at Seoul National University (SNU), one of the leading universities in the world. SNU ISP's intensive six-week summer program taught by distinguished SNU and visiting faculty members offers its participants the chance to learn in depth from experts on Korea and East Asia.
Conducted completely in English, more than 35 courses are offered from various academic fields, ranging from Korean and international studies, economics and business, to engineering and life sciences. Along with the regular courses, SNU ISP provides students with cultural immersing opportunities through customized field-trips and a number of extra-curricular activities throughout the program.

Credit Transfer

ISP students may transfer the academic credits earned from SNU ISP towards their degree program at the home institution. Credit transfer policies vary by university, and it is thus strongly advised that prospective students check with their academic advisor or study abroad office at home institution to see if the ISP credits can be acknowledged, prior to application.

Grading System

Grades are based on tests, assignments, attendance, and class participation. Grades will be available online within one month and transcripts are mailed to students and their home institutions within 6 weeks of completion of the program.
