The CAU International Winter Program (IWP) is a hybrid program providing students with a window into Korea, coupled with courses and cultural experiences that foster an understanding of Korea’s culture and society. CAU welcomes students from around the world to enjoy various courses covering Korean culture and society as well as studying the Korean Language. Special Lectures will be offered by some of the top faculties at CAU, as well as Korean culture and society specialists. Students will have numerous cultural and experiential activities diving right into Korean culture and will make lasting friendships with fellow international and local CAU students.
Based on the experience of the 7 years of CAU International Summer Program, the CAU Office of International Affairs has opened a new seasonal Short-term Program focused on Korean Studies and Winter Activities. For the past several years, many Asian countries, especially in Southeast Asia, have been swept by the Hallyu wave, or the Korean cultural wave. Never before has one nation spread its culture to others within such a short time and with such speed and enthusiasm, all thanks to the rapidly developing telecommunication technology. Each year, tens of thousands of visitors from other countries have been streaming into Korea, specifically to learn about and personally experiencing its wonderful culture and customs that were introduced to them through the mass media.
Chung-Ang University is particularly proud of this phenomenon. For the past 80 years, CAU has been at the forefront of the cultivation of the nation's cultural heritage in traditional music, dance, drama, and other performing arts. CAU, home of the K-pop and K-drama stars, and many of its alumni have contributed to the upbringing and creation of the Hallyu wave.
Chung-Ang University offers an opportunity to a select group of international students to learn and experience the essence of the Hallyu through the winter program. During their short stay in Korea, the students will be given many opportunities to immerse themselves in the culture and customs of the country. They will also learn much about its dynamic economy, politics, business, and people. International students who participate in the winter program will have the opportunity to have fun with fellow international students and participate in interactive activities with Korean students involved with the program.
Chung-Ang University will also provide its international students with a comfortable living environment during their stay with the on-campus dormitory. CAU promises a fun and exciting winter experience to all those who will come and join this program. Not only will the students have fun learning and being a part of a new and thriving culture, but they will also gain 4 transferable University credits through this program.
