Sogang University welcomes undergraduate and graduate students from colleges and universities which have a joint academic exchange agreement with Sogang to participate in the student exchange program. International students participating in the exchange program may register for courses offered in Korean or English. Although the main medium of instruction is Korean, many courses are offered in English, a list of which can be found on the Office of International Affairs website or here
(be sure to check the box "Courses for Exchange Students"). These are English courses offered to exchange students. Exchange students are fully integrated into the regular programs with Korean students. This allows exchange students to experience Korean culture to the fullest extent. All courses offered in the International Korean Studies and the Graduate School of International Studies (GSIS) are lectured in English. Exchange students may also register free of charge in Korean language courses offered by the Korean Language Education Center.
There are about 80 student clubs currently at Sogang University. Students can join various clubs according to their interests such as Korean traditional music, sports, religious, art, and volunteer service clubs and participate in activities with Sogang students. For more information about student clubs and activities, stop by the Office of Student Affairs located in the Student Union Hall.
Sogang University has a buddy program, which matches an exchange student with a regular Sogang student, to assist exchange students better adapt to life at Sogang and to promote reciprocal cultural experiences.
