Study Abroad Programs

The College of Software is ready to welcome students from all around the world who want to engage in study and research abroad experiences.


Students at international institutions that are partnered with SKKU are entitled to enjoy exciting education and research oppotunities, through exchange programs and laboratory internships at the college of SW, SKKU.



1. Exchange Student Program

Student Exchange Program

The Student Exchange Program is for the students coming to the College of Software from universities or institutions which have a valid student exchange agreement with SKKU. Typically, the program is administered on a semester basis and incoming students do not have to pay tuition fees to SKKU. They should instead pay fees to their home institution. Conditions of each student exchange program may vary depending on the programs, so please check with your home and candidate foreign institution in advance.


We gladly welcome incoming students to our college! We have held the “Welcoming Party” for new exchange students at the beginning of each semester. Eating pizza, you can recieve useful information about SKKU, the College of Software, course registration, Korean daily life and so on. During this event, exchange students can network with each other.


Global Community Cultural Excursion

Furthermore, our college organises the “Global Community Cultural Excursion” every semester for foreign students and professors. In order to make foreign fellows understand unique aspects of Korean culture, they can visit many beautiful and meaningful attractions. Since 2011, we have been to YongJooSa, to experience a Temple Stay, Seoul City Tour, Suwon Hwaseong Fortress and the DMZ, to name a few.



2. Laboratory Internship

Students can join our laboratory internship program if their main interest lies in conducting research with our scholars. Our faculty members will be pleased to invite foreign students with passion for hands-on research experiences, strong interest in intellectual challenges, solid research capabilities, and openness to new cultures.


Every vacation, the College of Software Operates the “Intern-Lab Program” for students from Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT) and Jilin University in China, with the College of Information and Communication Engineering and the College of Engineering, SKKU. While students are doing the intern-lab program, they can experience real laboratory life and study in depth about their major interest areas. Also, they have an opportunity to conduct research with postgraduate students at the SKKU in the future.




3. Other Opportunities

There are a number of other opportunities for studying at the SKKU, such as SKKU International Summer Semester (ISS) , Korean Language Program, Global Pioneer Spirit Walkathon, and the"Brothership" Workshop.


Every year during the vacation period, the Department of Software has a "Brothership" workshop with Shanghai Jiao Tong University. In 2015, the "Brothership" workshop took place from the 17th to 20th of August. 12 Shanghai Jiao Tong University students participated in this event, which consisted of seminars for mutual research, group activities, and a city tour. We will conduct more meaningful workshops in the future to develop our cooperation with the top univeristies in the world.
