KF Global e-School


KF Global e-School Program

In response to the increasing interest overseas in rapid changes experienced by Korea, SNUAC, with support of the Korea Foundation (KF), has been designing and offering various courses in Korean studies to foreign students since 2011. Several formats were experimented in order to develop a new educational model for real-time video lectures. Over the past 7 years, the SNUAC has provided 67 courses to 14 universities in 8 countries. Moreover, the e-School Program has become the flagship educational program
of SNUAC, where the Center collaborates with other prestigious universities and integrates education and research with diverse types of international exchange for the purpose of creating a new, sustainable model of education.

The participants in the 2017 program were from Tsinghua Univ. (China), the Higher School of Economics (Russia), the Univ. of Tubingen (Germany), Paris Diderot Univ. and Bordeaux Montaigne Univ. (France), and the Univ. of Social Sciences and Humanities–Vietnam Nat’l Univ. Hanoi (Vietnam). Notably, the 2017 e-School course for Tsinghua Univ. was selected as an innovative education program by the university. In 2017, SNUAC offered 8 for-credit courses taught by 11 faculty members of Seoul Nat’l Univ. to 174
undergraduate and graduate students in partner universities.

In addition, 8 outstanding students from 5 universities in 4 countries participated in the ‘2017 KF Global e-School Fellowship Program’ funded by the KF and co-organized with SNU Office of International Affairs in June-July 2017. The participants in the four-week program were provided with travel expenses, enrollment fees for international summer courses, and accommodation. During their stay in Seoul, the participants had the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of Korea by interacting with SNUAC interns and student club members.

SNUAC was selected for the third phase of the e-School Program (2018-2020) and will continuously provide education programs for international students from prestigious universities who are interested in the Korean society.
