Seoul National University (SNU)


ISP (International Summer Program)


As you may know, we have been running ISP for several years, but it was partially disrupted by the COVID-19. Hence, we had no choice but to scale down the program and were forced to run it online in 2021. However, we are pleased to announce that it will be back off-line in 2022, renewed with more courses and equipped with fun-pact activities.

SNU ISP is an intensive five-week summer program in English that enables international students to interactively study together with SNU students in an environment, academically vibrant and culturally diverse, with courses ranging in a variety of topics, including East Asian studies, Korean studies, Business, and Economics, Engineering, and Korean Language, and a multitude of activities allowing full immersion in Korea.

What makes SNU ISP even more attractive is the newly launched "Global Practice and Field Learning" courses which are the SNU version of Internship(project-based) courses and we sincerely aim to be first-class opportunities that students can advance their intellectual interests and experience the SNU academic system and the business practice of Korean companies. It is also envisaged that our students will have a positive experience of globalization by sharing and exchanging ideas in an international context.

To that end, we would like to invite you to join the “SNU ISP Scholarship” scheme, in which we will offer 10% discount of the SNU ISP tuition for your students to participate in the SNU ISPWe sincerely hope this will be the basis for enhancing our partnership and encourage more students to participate in this new scheme.
