Students set for summer adventure in Seoul

Students will attend Hansung University or Seoul National University of Science and Technology

Nine students from Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) will have the opportunity to experience South Korean culture after applying successfully to attend an international summer school in Seoul.

The undergraduate students, from programmes across the University, at all levels of study, have been selected to study at either South Korea’s Hansung University or Seoul National University of Science and Technology (SeoulTech), in a new partnership between the institutions and GCU.

For both summer schools, the students will undertake classes on Korean language, history and cuisine, as well as travel to some of South Korea’s tourist highlights.

Susan McGiffen, Director of Global Engagement and Recruitment, said: “We launched the initiative in January and were delighted with the level of interest from students wishing to take part. The aim now is to secure this opportunity as an annual event, allowing even more students to undertake an international summer experience during their undergraduate degree studies.”

The first cohort of students will travel to Hansung at the end of June, for four weeks. The SeoulTech programme will run for two weeks at the end of July.

GCU will welcome the first incoming semester exchange students from both South Korean universities from academic year 2016/17.
