As relationships with Asia and other nations around the world are becoming increasingly closer, the role of KSU’s international exchange programs is also becoming increasingly important.
Since its opening in April 1999 with the purpose of dealing with globalization, the Center for International Affairs has been the university’s primary organization for promoting a wide range of international exchange activities, including receiving international students, administration of exchange student programs and exchange agreements with overseas universities. KSU, where many international students are studying, offers opportunities to experience cross-cultural interaction on a daily basis, especially with exchange partner universities.
As its first step to globalization, KSU entered into an academic exchange agreement with Tianjin University, China, in November 1990. Since then, KSU has concluded exchange agreements with 19 schools in 6 nations. KSU is actively involved in a wide range of activities, such as academic students exchange programs, friendship exchanges among students, and cultural and sports exchanges.
Through KSU’s annual overseas training program, a large number of students visit private enterprises, universities and museums throughout Europe, the U.S. and Southeast Asia every year, broadening their international perspectives.
Ever since the student exchange system was launched in FY 1996, KSU has sent many students to affiliated institutions overseas, and at the same time, actively received students from those schools, in order to provide them with opportunities to directly encounter different cultures and develop global perspectives and knowledge. KSU provides various forms of unique support, including accreditation for a specific number of credits while students are abroad, as well as scholarships, to encourage students to establish themselves in a future global society.
