Kookmin University (Seoul, South Korea)
Class Credit- Fall and Spring
Undergraduate students can take a minimum of 12 hours of courses at Kookmin in Fall and Spring semesters. The student must apply to a specific department in one of the Colleges, and with few exceptions, must take all of their courses in that department. Some of the Colleges do not allow exchange students. Graduate students are allowed to go as well; however, all of the graduate courses are taught in Korean, so the student must be fluent in Korean in order to be accepted. Here are the available Colleges undergraduate students can apply to:
- College of General Education (you can take courses from this College even if you are enrolled in another College)
- Global College of Humanities and Area Studies
- College of Social Science
- College of Economics and Commerce
- College of Business Administration (only 100-level and 200-level courses, as this College is not AACSB-accredited)
- College of Design (a portfolio must be submitted with your application)
Korean language courses are available as well. The courses are 10 weeks long and begin about 5 weeks into the semester. Beginner courses are usually taught in the afternoon, which means your other courses would need to be in the morning, as the Korean courses are every day and last 4 hours.
Class Credit- Summer
