Inha University – Summer School

Program Terms:

Summer Term


Inha University annually offers a summer school program as a part of its goal to enhanced global education. The summer program was first initiated in 2004 to provide overseas college students with hands-on opportunities to learn the Korean language and experience cultural and academic life in Korea. Since then, the program has continued to develop and has been enriched with more unique and diverse activities, while attracting more participants every year.

This short-term, intensive program mainly consists of classroom lectures, visits to corporate sites, and field trips to cultural and historic sites. Through the coursework, international students will have opportunities to better understand the dynamic aspects of Korean society in the past, present, and future. Participants in summer courses will also benefit from the historical and cultural opportunities of Incheon as a truly unique Asian metropolis, a place of dynamic change.
