Program Description

The University
Kyung Hee University (KHU) aims to promote the role of intellectuals and academics in world affairs through focusing on creativity, progress and cooperation. The university has initiated several international movements, including the Global Cooperation Society Movement. This movement strives to protect human rights, build a society of freedom and equality, and ultimately, attain world peace. KHU also strives to bridge cultural and social gaps by promoting mutual understanding and prosperity. As a result, the university encourages frequent exchanges with sister schools overseas to facilitate the exchange of ideas. These activities spread a shared belief in the value of learning.

The Surrounding Area
A center for arts and culture, the capital city of Seoul blends old and new with modern high-rises and trendy shops mixed in with ancient temples, markets and palaces. Namsan Tower, in the center of Seoul, provides a 360 degree view of the entire city. Nearby, beaches, Buddhist Temples, museums and parks offer exciting day trip activities for eager explorers.

Easily reached by subway, train or bus, Suwon lies just twenty miles south of the capital city. A popular, historic tourist destination, Suwon is home to the Hwaseong Fortress (the last remaining wall to surround a Korean city) and close to the Korean Folk Village of Singal and the Everland theme park of Yogin.
