The 2018 SKKU International Summer Semester has been expanded from 2017, with more courses and more extracurricular activities than ever before. When not studying, students can participate in the following cultural activities:
  • The Everland and Caribbean Bay amusement parks
  • The Nanta comedy show

  • and more!
Under the ANU PRIMO first-year learning abroad programs, first-year ANU students with Australian citizenship aged 18 to 28 can apply for a grant of AUD $3,000 to assist them with the program and living costs of this course. These grants are offered through ANU funded projects of the Australian Government New Colombo Plan Mobility Program.

All ANU students who attend the program will receive a 30% tuition scholarship from Sungkyunkwan University, including later-year students who apply directly.
 
The Sungkyunkwan International Summer Semester runs from 25 June 2018 to 20 July 2018 at Sungkyunkwan University's campus in Seoul. Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU) is one of Asia's oldest universities and was founded in 1398, shortly after Seoul became the capital of Korea. The campus is located close to the old city centre in one of Asia's largest, safest and most dynamic cities. The International Summer Semester is a four-week summer experience, bringing together students and faculty from Korea and around the world.

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 the Australian government grant scheme the New Colombo Plan (NCP). 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.
First year students are considered to be students who commenced undergraduate university study in 2018 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 - however, later-year students who participate in this program will be eligible for a 30% tuition scholarship from Sungkyunkwan University.
 

Academic Credit

Students who undertake two courses (either 5 or 6 SKKU credits) can receive credit from Sungkyunkwan equivalent to 6 ANU units. This credit counts towards a student's degree at ANU. Students receiving a grant must be eligible to receive credit for their studies.
 

Fees and Grants

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. For more information, see the SKKU International Summer Semester website.

Sungkyunkwan University has granted ANU five tuition-waived places at the International Summer Semester program. International students and Permanent Residents will be prioritised for these spots, as they are not eligible for NCP grants. Students will be automatically considered for one of these spots when they apply. For all other students, a 30% discount on the regular program fee applies.

Student will need to pay an application fee of approximately AUD $120. Two or three courses costs approximately AUD $2,000 (this includes the 30% discount for ANU students). This cost covers all activities provided by the summer program. A further optional AUD $775 (approx.) covers accommodation. It does not include airfares, meals, personal expenses or travel, or other personal purchase choices or necessities.
 

Application Process

There are two simple steps to applying for a PRIMO program:
  1. 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.
  2. 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 open on 12 February 2018 and will close on 2 April 2018 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 the institution before 11 June 2018.
 

Later Year Students

Later year students should apply directly to SKKU. Later years students are required to meet all eligibility requirements set by the partner, including any GPA requirements. Later year students are welcome to email Global Programs at outbound.global@anu.edu.au after applying to the partner in order to be included in pre-departure information and events.
