3. The head professor of the student’s department will review the course syllabus, etc. and give approval for credits for major courses (either required or elective) up to 18 credits. Others will be recognized as credits for liberal art courses.

2. Short-term Program (Summer & Winter Semester)

Students can also choose to spend their vacation abroad while studying their major or language at our partner universities. This program has advantages of taking credits for a short time (4~8 weeks), receiving scholarship and having cultural experience as well as language study.
