Korea University International Summer Campus Coursework: Students have the option to select courses from a number of faculties including Business, Humanities, Science, and many more. Please visit the website below for complete course availability.
Korea University International Summer Campus Coursework plus Internship: KU offers students that are completing course work in the International Summer Campus program the option of participating in an internship. These opportunities are primarily in private-sector businesses in fields including marketing, sales, operations and public relations.
Final program details will be published by the partner institution that manages this program and are generally updated on their program webpage. However, you must apply through Go Global to be considered for this program and ensure you follow the appropriate transfer credit process.

Tuition and Fees
There are a limited number of exchange spaces available, which will be assessed on a competitive basis. Under exchange, students pay UBC tuition for the number of credits they enroll in for this program. If not selected to use an exchange space, students will pay tuition directly to the partner institution at a special discounted rate for UBC students.
In both cases, the partner institution may charge other program fees such as application fees, housing costs, field trips, cultural activities, or other costs associated with hosting this program. Please check the partner webpage for details of program costs.
