The 32nd & The 33rd AKS Summer Program for International Students

Deadline: March 4, 2022

The Academy of Korean Studies (AKS) is pleased to announce the "32nd & 33rd AKS Summer Program for International Students." As an important part of our mission is to cultivate young leaders, who can contribute to the development of Korean studies, the academy has organized an intensive summer program for international undergraduate students in Korean studies. This program is composed of various components, such as special lectures on Korea, intensive Korean language courses, field trips, excursions, and traditional cultural activities. Since its starting in 1993, we held the program 31 times and 908 students from over 70 countries attended the program.

In 2021, in light of the COVID-19 situation, real-time Korean language classes and special lectures on Korean studies were conducted online and received positive comments from participants. The COVID-19 situation is expected to continue in 2022; thus, the program will be conducted in the same way (online) as in 2021.
