International short-term classes are being sponsored by the Institute of International Cooperation and Education during the summer vacation. This program helps students of the University of Seoul (UOS) to study abroad for two to five weeks. The opportunity to participate in this program is only given to students whose GPA (Grade Point Average) is over 3.0.

On April 19, 47 final selectees were announced on the university’s homepage. Each student will be sent to one of 11 universities located in mainland China, the United States of America, Russia, Peru, Taiwan, Hong Kong, or France. At the information session held on April 4 in Changgong Building, the organizers couldn’t inform students whether they would be able to go to Saint-Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics (ITMO) university in Russia since a bomb terrorism had recently occurred in St. Peterburg at that time. However, according to Park Bo-Eun of the Institute of International Cooperation and Education, they have decided to send one student to ITMO University after all.

This program has two main purposes: improving the foreign language ability of the students of the University of Seoul and fostering global talented people who have a cosmopolitan outlook. This program has been held every semester, but the scale is becoming larger each time. Both the number of universities where students are sent and the support funds for each student have greatly increased. In 2017, 50 percent of the probable cost will be given as scholarships, except for the students being sent to Sun Yat-Sen University in China, which only costs about 400 USD. The program will be held from June 18 to August 5. Personal schedules are allowed during the periods of entry and departure.
