Inha University is one of the most prestigious private universities in Korea, and has been continually ranked as a top 10 college nationwide. Since its foundation as an engineering institute in 1954, the university has sustained a strong tradition of academic integrity and gained a reputation for excellent educational programs and research in the fields of science and technology, and across a broader academic spectrum including IT, social sciences, business, global logistics, education, law, fine arts, humanities and medicine. Motivated by the strong support and investment of the Hanjin Group, which controls the foundation along with Korean Air, Inha University continues to develop and enhance its education programs, practical research projects and globalization efforts. Inha’s vision continues with its grand project of building a global campus in New Songdo City, a newly emerging international business and R&D hub city in northeast Asia.

INHA Summer School

Inha University annually offers a Summer School program as a part of its goal to a more enhanced global education. The summer program was first initiated in 2004 to provide overseas college students with hands-on opportunities to learn the Korean language and experience the cultural and academic life in Korea. Since then, the program has continued to develop and has been enriched with more unique and diverse activities, while attracting more participants every year.

This short-term, intensive program mainly consists of classroom lectures, visits to corporate sites, cultural sessions and field trips to cultural and historic places in general. Through the coursework, international students will have opportunities to better understand the dynamic aspects of the past, present and future of the Korean society.

One of the most important and engaging aspects of this program is that the learning is not limited to the classroom. Many field trip locations are themselves “living textbooks” for international students, who are eager to gain real world experiences on traditional and modern Korean culture. Throughout the program, international students will enjoy many chances to meet and interact with Korean students, and an opportunity will be given to make a presentation to share their experiences and views with each other. At the end of the program, participants will receive certificates of completion.

In addition to learning about the Korean language and culture, students will also be able to take many other interesting courses such as East Asian Politics and Int’l Relations, Korean Society and Politics in the Films, Introduction to Korean Business & Economy, Language and Culture in Practice and Modern Technologies for the Future etc. These courses will cover theories at the introductory level, present diverse aspects in the chosen fields and include site visits to various off-campus places. The fields and scopes of the courses will continue to expand reflecting demands from students and the global community.

    • you should check out their website.there are plenty of information needed in order to join the programme. as some may have explained, airfare and other personal expenses are excluded from the fee. it means, the amount of money that you have to pay to inha only covers the program cost, meals (according to my senior inha only cover for weekdays breakfast and dinner, also sahur if you’re muslim), and accomodation.apart from those, you have to bring extra money.hope that helps :)
