Yonsei University International Summer School

About the Program

Yonsei International Summer School (YISS) is located minutes away from Seoul's metropolitan downtown. YISS has become an integral part of campus life based on a unique blend of Korean and global cultures. YISS continues to grow and evolve, accommodating the needs of a rapidly changing student body and meeting the challenges of a fast-paced global society. The 2015 program has been revamped in order to highlight growing interest in the arts, culture, and humanities while also offering classes in management and economics, global issues, history and social sciences, and science and technology.
