At Hanyang University, we understand the importance and value of studying abroad. Whether this is for a short-term program like HISS, or for a long-term program like our exchange student program. Immersing yourself in a new country, culture and language gives you a better understanding of not only of the culture of the host country, but also of your own. Our short-term programs like HISS and HIWS are developed to give you exactly that immersive experience.
We always put the safety of our students first. Last year, we were forced to cancel HISS 2020 due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. We transformed our short-term winter program to an online-only program. As for HISS 2021, we are planning the program in a way to ensure that our students are safe at all times, but at the same time can experience Korea and Korean culture in a unique way.
As it seems now, we are planning to host HISS offline. this means that students can travel to Korea and physically attend Hanyang International Summer School. However, if the COVID-19 pandemic still affects the safety of our students in July 2021, we will transform HISS to a hybrid program, or even an online-only program.
All registered students will be informed as soon as more information is known. For now, we hope to welcome you to Korea this summer but please keep in mind that we might make changes to HISS if the COVID-19 pandemic changes. News and updates regarding this topic will be shared here on the website.
