If you would like to take an exciting first-year learning abroad program, and study for three to six weeks in Seoul over the Australian summer (Korean winter) break, then consider applying for the Winter Abroad at Yonsei program!

As part of the PRIMO first-year learning abroad programs, undergraduate first-year ANU students can apply for a of AUD $3,000 to assist them with the tuition and living costs of this opportunity.

The winter program is composed of two separate three-week sessions, with intensive morning coursework across academic course options in accounting, biomedical, economics, Korean studies, management and psychology, with unique afternoon Korean language and Taekwondo classes. On the weekend students can enjoy a range of Korean winter activities. It is an excellent opportunity to catch up with your coursework, meeting professors in an intimate setting, and to enjoy the companionship of students from all over the world.

Winter Abroad at Yonsei runs in two sessions from 27 December 2017 to 17 January 2018 and 22 January 2018 to 09 February 2018 at Yonsei University's campus in Seodaemun-gu, Seoul.

 

Eligibility

Under the ANU PRIMO first-year learning abroad programs, successful applicants will be automatically considered for one of the available grants. The program is funded under two grant schemes, the New Colombo Plan (NCP) and the Vice Chancellor’s Coursework Travel Grants.  Both grants are worth AUD $3,000 each.

To be eligible for one of the NCP grants, you must:

  • be an Australian citizen;
  • be between 18 and 28 years of age upon commencement of the study program.
  • be in your first year of undergraduate study at the time of the application;
  • seek "credit" approval from an academic advisor of your College to be eligible for the grant.


To be eligible for one of the VC Travel Grants, you must:

  • be in your first year of undergraduate study at the time of the application;
  • seek "credit" approval from an academic advisor of your College to be eligible for the grant.


The VC Travel Grants are available to both domestic and international students, but international students will be prioritised.

First year students are considered to be students who commenced undergraduate university study in 2017 and/or who have completed 48 units or less at the start of the program. Later-year students are welcome to apply for the program, but cannot be considered for one of the grants.

 

Academic credit

Students will receive the equivalent of either 6 or 12 ANU units, depending on whether they undertake one or two sessions. This credit counts towards a student's degree at ANU. Students receiving a grant must be eligible to receive credit for their studies.

Fees

Please note that the AUD $3,000 grant will not cover the entire cost of the program. You will need to consider airfares, tuition fees, accommodation, visa fees etc. . Tuition fees (including application fee) are KRW 1,700,000 (approx. AUD $2,000) for one session or KRW 3,300,000 (approx. $3,800) for both sessions.

Keep in mind that this amount only covers tuition, and that accommodation is available at an extra cost. For more information about costs, have a look at the winter school website.
All nominated students will attend this program on a study abroad basis, meaning that they pay tuition fees directly to Yonsei and not to ANU.
 

Application process

There are two simple steps to applying for a PRIMO program:
  • Tell us in about 150 words how this opportunity will enrich or enhance your studies at ANU and how this opportunity will benefit you personally.
  • Seek approval from your academic college to receive ANU credit for this program.
    • You can do so using the "PRIMO College Approval Form" available in the learning content section of the online application for this program. Students must upload the signed "PRIMO College Approval Form" with this application to be considered.

If a student's college does not approve academic credit for this experience they cannot be considered as an eligible applicant for grants. For students with more than one college, only one college needs to give approval.

Applications will open on 14 August 2017 and will close on 9 October 2017, and you should first apply directly to ANU Global Programs.

If you are selected by ANU Global Programs to take part in the course, you will then have to submit an application to Yonsei University before 17 November 2017.
