Course information and restrictions

Students participate in the Korea University Student Exchange Program (KUSEP). Korean language courses are offered in six different levels from beginning to advanced every semester. Each level course is taught two hours a day, four days a week. One regular semester is composed of 16 weeks so students are required to take approximately 120 class hours per semester. All students are required to take a placement test before class begins. If necessary, students can take a one-level-higher class or a one-level-lower class together with the assigned class.

Courses in English: Korea University offers a range of courses taught in English, which are indicated with (English) next to the course title. These courses are repeated on the semester base. Thus, students can assume almost similar courses will be offered every year.

This information is subject to change. When selecting courses, ensure that they are available in the semester for which you are applying. Ultimately, students are responsible for researching applicable course restrictions.

Tuition, Fees and Awards

Exchange tuition

15 credits or equivalent full-time program fee per term, paid to UBC. Summer students attend through our exchange agreement and pay tuition to UBC based on the number of credits earned at the partner institution. Some exceptions may apply. 

Scholarships + awards

Global KU Scholarships are awarded to exchange students with high academic standing (at least 75% overall average) who will be studying at KU for a full academic year.

As a U21 Member institution, KU offers an automatic Universitas 21 Scholarship to UBC students with acceptance to the university.    

The Go Global award $1000

All students accepted to Go Global for Exchange, Research Abroad, or Study Abroad programs are automatically considered for this award. If you meet the eligibility criteria, you'll be notified of your award after you're accepted to Go Global and after you get nominated to apply to the partner university.

Additional awards

Students who are eligible for awards may receive one UBC or UBC-affiliated international learning award. If you're eligible, you are always offered the highest-value award. Unless stated otherwise, you need to meet eligibility criteria set out by the University Senate regarding awards.

Check out international learning awards and eligibility.

Information for US students

If you are a student from the United States, please check the US Department of Education Lookup Tool to ensure that any partner institution you wish to attend on Exchange is Title IV ‘eligible’ forFederal Student Aid for the year in which you intend to study there. For institutions outside of the US, select “Foreign Country” from the “State” dropdown menu.

If you attend an eligible institution, then you may receive Title IV federal student loans while on Exchange.

If you attend an ineligible institution:

  • You will not be eligible for US federal student loans,
  • You may invalidate any US student aid you have previously received for your studies at UBC,
  • You may be required to immediately begin repaying your US student loans, and
  • You may not be eligible for any future US student aid for the remainder of your studies at UBC.
