We are going to open SKKU applications on Monday, the 19th, and close them on March 9.

SKKU is a well-regarded university that offers excellent support for visiting exchange students. SKKU offers a variety of courses taught in English, but some courses in Korean are available to exchange students. Since this is an IU exchange, students that the College nominates pay their regular IU tuition. In addition, nominated students may apply for funds from the College to support their travel.  There will be an additional scholarship opportunity available through the Institute for Korean Studies.
