The well-established International Summer Campus at Hanyang University brings together students and faculty from institutions all over the globe for this 4-week summer program. Over 40 courses are taught in English in a wide-range of subjects including Korean Studies, Humanities, Natural Sciences, Economics, International Relations, Communications, Design, Sports and Korean Language by professors from some of the most prominent institutions world-wide. Binghamton students live either in residence halls on the main campus in Seoul or private housings nearby the Hanyang University campus, and participate in optional cultural activities and day trips to locations of interest in and around Seoul.

Location

The Republic of Korea, known as South Korea, is a country of some 44 million people. With its own distinctive history and culture, it also represents the triumphs and challenges of East Asia's modernization, economic expansion, and contraction. Korea is an excellent vantage point from which to view the region's international cooperation, competition, and conflicts. Seoul, the capital city, provides a lively setting for summer study at Hanyang University. It is a modern, cosmopolitan city where students can visit Korea's historic palaces, museums, and temples and attend all manner of musical and theatrical performances. The variety of restaurants, cafes, shops, flea markets, sports competitions, and cultural events offers something for every individual interest. Hanyang University is located in Seoul's downtown district known as Haengdang-dong, north of the Han River. Within ten minutes walk of the campus are theaters, shops, restaurants, cafes, and night spots. The campus has its own subway conveniently located on Line 2 (green line), Seoul's most heavily used subway line, for easy access to the rest of the city. There are also multiple bus connections to make transportation around the city easy.

Calendar

The 2017 International Summer School at Hanyang University took place between July 3 - July 28. We will provide updated dates for 2018 in December.
 

Participation through Binghamton University

Although we understand that some students may financially be better off by directly applying to the program rather than through the Office of International Education and Global Initiatives, we still highly recommend all Binghamton students to apply for the program through us, considering these benefits: Hanyang_Participation through IEGI.pdf. Binghamton students on this program will receive 45%-tuition reduction benefit as Binghamton University is one of Hanyang University's partner institutions.

Academic Features

The Hanyang University International Summer School is intended to provide courses for both visiting International students and Korean students. Coursework in English is offered in a variety of fields and students in any major area are welcome to participate. Many of the faculty come from well-known and respected institutions in the United States.

In summer 2017, the following Binghamton Faculty-taught courses will be offered:
HISS 2017 Course Descriptions.pdf. Binghamton students must enroll in at least one (1) Binghamton Faculty-taught course. To see a full list of courses offered, please visit: http://www.hanyangsummer.com/seoul/courses/

Credits

Students can earn 6 credits during the 4 week program. All academic courses are worth three credits (except martial arts, which are one-credit courses). At Binghamton, credits toward fulfilling requirements of a major or a minor are evaluated by the relevant academic departments. Students should discuss their intention to participate on the Hanyang University program with all appropriate academic advisors and obtain pre-approvals and an understanding of study abroad credit policies.

To see a list of courses students have previously taken at Hanyang and how these classes were shown on Binghamton transcripts, check out our Study Abroad Course Equivalencies page. 

Student Life

Students attending Hanyang University's International Summer School have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the culture of Korea by participating in various field trips, excursions, and cultural programs. Hanyang Buddy Students offer a "buddy" system of native students who are eager to help international students adjust to life at Hanyang University. Students can choose to be part of the "buddy" system by indicating in the Hanyang University's application.

Previous field trips included opportunities to explore Korean culture and history at Gyeongbokgung (Royal Palace), Insadong, Korean Folk Village, and an overnight stay in a traditional "hanok" in Jeonju. Other excursions may include a trip to see the stunning views from the N Seoul Tower, participate in the Boryeong Mud Festival, and visit the Coex Mall where K-pop star figures are.

Living Arrangements

Students are housed in the Student Residence Hall or in an off-campus apartment building arranged by Hanyang University, which are conveniently located within 10 minutes of the campus. All students share a room with a roommate and each room is furnished with separate beds, closets, and desks. Among the facilities available in the Residence Hall are a study hall, snack shop, shower rooms, a laundry room, and a cafeteria. All rooms are equipped with Internet connection and laundry machines are available in each dormitory for free. Students can have meals at various student cafeterias on campus or at nearby restaurants both on and off campus. **Students must indicate that they wish to live at the housing offered by Hanyang University on the Hanyang University's online application.**

It is possible that the program may not be able to house all of its participants in its student housing. In that case, students should find private housing with the help from both Hanyang University and the program advisor at Binghamton University. Further notice about the availability of student housing will be announced during the application period.
