International Summer Program (ISP)



Our Program

Since its establishment in 2007, more than two thousand students from around the world have participated in the SNU ISP to learn, experience, and enjoy unforgettable summers of academic and cultural activities, as well as long-lasting friendships.

SNU ISP presents a unique opportunity for students to experience academic life at Seoul National University, Korea's most prestigious university and one of the leading universities in the world. SNU ISP's intensive six-week summer program, taught by distinguished SNU and visiting faculty members, offers students a chance to learn in depth about Korea and East Asia, as well as a range of topics from the disciplines of Economics and Business Management to History, Politics, Sociology, and Arts. SNU ISP also provides courses on Korean language and traditional arts for students wishing to acquire or advance their Korean language abilities while immersing in Korean contemporary and traditional culture.
