I realised i have quite a few readers who would benefit with more information of the SKKU Summer Programme. So here goes!
Back in 2012, I applied early in the year in Jan/Feb.
It includes a 50 odd dollars registration fee to secure a place.
Mostly everyone gets selected even though it says depending on academic results etc.
While the summer programme starts in late June 2012 for 4 weeks, SKKU would have hostels provided according to gender and school. For example, SIM students and NTU students stayed in different buildings but some students do opt to find their own accommodation.
Air tickets are purchased on our own as every student have their own traveling plans
Travel insurance is also advised to be bought.
In SKKU, we can take up to 2 courses plus free language course.
It is mandatory to take a minmium of one course which cost 750 USD,
accommodation is 500 USD,
and there is also a cultural tour by the school around korea optional at 300 USD.
It includes like trip to cultural village, confucian temples, lotte world and making of kimbab held once a week over 4 weeks.
Course selection and all payments are done on your own via the SKKU portal.
Accommodation will be allocated by SKKU.
Although there may or may not be credit transfers but the experience there and making friends around the world is priceless.
