Welcome to Ewha International Summer College (EISC)!
Founded in 1971, Ewha International Summer College is Korea’s oldest summer program at the university level. Now, every year we are happy to receive around 400 international students from all over the world including more than 80 universities across about 20 countries.
40 plus courses are offered in nine different disciplines encompassing social sciences, business & economics, humanities, science & engineering, Korean studies, music & art, politics & international studies, etc. This year we are happy to newly add the art & design track. In particular, we launched a team-teaching course in the field of quantum computing combined by internship opportunities at the Institute of Quantum Nano Science (QNS). Also, field trips to SM Town, cooking Kimchi program, temple stay, Lotte World, DMZ, and Nanum house (so-called ‘comfort women’ house) visits are offered.
Many of you may be totally newcomers to the university and to the City of Seoul. It must have been an adventure for many of you to fly hundreds or thousands of miles away from home to join us. Regardless of your level of familiarity with the campus and the City, our staffs at the summer college and the Office of International Affairs at Ewha are ready to assist each of you in answering questions and guiding your life at Ewha. Friends and knowledge you will have gained at EISC will stay with you throughout your life journey for expanding your horizons.
We hope your experiences with us will make you more culturally mature and make your future academic and career life more global. On your greater understanding and broader perspective and deeper respect for humanity and cultural diversity, the future of global society will depend. On behalf of Ewha Womans University, I thank each of you for participating in this small summer process of reformation for yourself and for the world.
Welcome again to Ewha family!
Vice President of International Affairs, Ewha Womans University
