Program Description:
The Yonsei International Summer School (YISS) opened its doors in 1985 and since then, YISS has become an integral part of campus life based on a unique blend of Korean and global cultures. YISS continues to grow and evolve, accommodating the needs of a rapidly changing student body and meeting the challenges of a fast-paced global society. 

The 2016 program has been revamped in order to highlight growing interest in the arts, culture, and humanities while also offering cutting-edge classes in management and economics, global issues, history and social sciences, and science and technology. 

This summer, we invite you to experience the legendary “Yonsei Spirit” and to join us for an unforgettable summer in the heart of Seoul. You will make life-long friends, build new networks, expand and deepen your academic and cultural horizons, and experience life in one of Asia’s coolest, yet largely undiscovered metropolises of 10 million. 

Make Yonsei your summer home in 2016 and have the best summer of your undergraduate journey.
