Inha University annually offers a Summer School program as a part of its devotion to a more enhanced global education. The summer program was first initiated in 2004 to provide overseas college students with hands-on opportunities to learn the Korean language and experience the cultural and academic life in Korea. Since then, the program has continued to develop and be enriched with more unique and diverse activities, while attracting more participants every year. This short term, intensive program mainly consists of classroom lectures, visits to corporate sites, cultural sessions and field trips to cultural and historic places in general. Through the course work, international students will have opportunities to better understand the dynamic aspects of the past, present and future of the Korean society. One of the most important and engaging aspects of these programs is that the learning is not limited to the classroom. Many field trip locations themselves become “living textbooks” for international students, who are eager to gain real world experiences on traditional and modern Korean culture. Throughout the program, international students will enjoy many chances to meet and interact with Korean students, and an opportunity will be given to make a presentation to share their experiences and views with each other. At the end of the program, participants will receive certificates of completion. In addition to learning the Korean language and culture, students will also be able to take other interesting courses. These courses will cover theories on the introductory level, present diverse aspects in the chosen fields and include site visits to various off-campus places. The fields and scopes of the courses will continue to expand reflecting demands from students and the global community. Why should you participate in Inha Summer School?
