About the Program

Yonsei has offered the International Summer School (YISS) since 1985. This long-standing program offers a wide variety of courses, research and internship opportunities while immersed in Korean culture. UBC students have the choice of applying to one of three experiences offered by Yonsei:

Yonsei University – Summer Research Internship Program: While completing course work Yonsei offers students the opportunity to participate in exciting research projects from a number of areas of study including Humanities, Social Sciences, Science and Engineering. Students will spend 20 hours per week working on their research project while completing academic courses. Check out the Summer Research Internship Program Website to learn more including details of upcoming projects.

Yonsei University – Summer Cooporate Internship Program: As part of the Yonsei International Summer School, students have the opportunity to develop their desired career skills with a corporate internship placement. Students will engage in coursework while pursuing a 20 hour per week internship. Internship placements are offered in a variety of fields including marketing and business. Please visit the Yonsei Summer Corporate Internship Program website to learn more about the program and upcoming internship opportunities.

All students applying to the research or internship program must first be accepted into the Yonsei International Summer School program and complete academic credit.

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.

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.

How to apply to a Go Global Summer Program

  1. Complete your research about the summer abroad program and ensure that you meet the eligibility criteria (UBCV / UBCO), including any partner or program-specific requirements. 
  2. Apply online by the Go Global deadline listed above. 
  3. Please submit only one application for the summer program of your choice. If selecting a program that has limited enrolment (e.g. "Summer Exchange"), include a second choice as a backup on the same application by selecting the "Add Item" button.
  4. Where applicable, select the "Summer Exchange" experience to pay tuition to UBC or the "Study Abroad" experience to pay tuition to the partner institution. If you select "Summer Exchange", be sure to include a backup choice.
  5. If you plan to do multiple experiences (e.g. more than one summer program, a term exchange and a summer program, etc.), please submit a separate application for each experience. Our team will review your application(s) and if successful, will nominate you to apply to the partner institution(s). 
  6. Pay the Go Global Fee when prompted, after the application deadline.
  7. If successfully nominated by Go Global, you will receive instructions on how to apply to the partner university.
