HISS 2021 in two modes: Online and Hybrid

We deeply understand the concern about studying abroad this summer at HISS. Some of you may be hesitant about traveling to Korea too soon while the COVID-19 is still present. Travel restrictions and visa issues can also make students difficult to plan their trip abroad. Therefore, we’ve decided to offer HISS 2021 program in two modes: Online and Hybrid. We believe that online courses will be a great option for Hybrid HISS students, as they will help them manage their time efficiently and study at their convenience.

Following the online success of Hanyang International Winter School, we are determined to offer our full-online students the best experience possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. Offline Students are still able to travel to Korea and experience Seoul in a unique way, while receiving top-level education in a safe and responsible way.

HYU’s Response to the COVID-19

1. Launch the Infectious Disease Management Committee   

Hanyang launched Infectious Disease Management Committee. The committee holds meetings every day while keeping a close eye on the spread of the virus. The committee is cooperating with the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency(KCDC), Seongdong-gu, and the Ministry of Education to prevent transmission of the disease and to manage COVID-19 infected cases.

   2.  Mandate face mask wearing and QR codes on campus   
Currently, wearing masks and body temperature checks are mandatory for all those who enter and exit school buildings. The university has also installed a QR-PASS system at the entrance of the buildings to keep track of real-time entry records of staff, students, and visitors and to monitor people’s health conditions.
3.  Introduce social distancing guidelines and rules on campus   

HYU strictly restricts the number of students per class and limits student gatherings following the social distancing level imposed by Korean Government. At current social distancing level 2.0, most courses are taught online except experiment classes and small-sized theory classes. Students and faculty require the approval of the head of a department before any meetings, conferences, and events, social gatherings are held. Indoor/outdoor social gatherings are limited to a maximum of 5 people.
