Students who wish to learn Korean and Korean culture may take the courses of "Korean Language" and "Korean Arts and Crafts" courses where they can learn language, cross-cultural communication skills, and traditional culture.
You may be able to transfer the academic credit you earn from SNU ISI towards your studies at your home institution. Credit transfer policies vary among different universities, so we advise you to check with your academic advisor before registering for SNU ISI courses to verify how the credits earned at SNU will be accepted by your home institution. Please note that SNU is not responsible for assessing how courses completed here will transfer to your home university.
Grades are based on tests, assignments, attendance, and class participation. Grades will be available online within one month after the end of the year’s SNU ISI program. ISI transcripts will be mailed to students in mid-September. Please be advised that if you plan to graduate in the summer, transcripts from SNU may not reach your home institution in time.
