The Exchange Student Program is offered in the second semester (September to December) of the third year. Those who wish to participate in this program must have a minimum TOEIC score of 600 and satisfy all of the other requirements. The primary purpose of this program is to deepen your understanding of the country or area where you study, but it is also a great opportunity to further develop a global mindset and to hone flexible communication skills through interactions with your classmates abroad. All of these competencies are essential to playing an active role on the global stage. As an official part of the MIC curriculum, the credits you earn abroad for designated courses will count toward your graduation requirements (exceptions include Korean and other language courses).
|Examples of courses offered at Yeungnam University (Korea)||Modern Korean Society, Colonialism and Nationalism in Asia, International Manners and Protocol, Research on North America, and Writing in Korean.|
All the courses at our partner universities are offered in English, and MIC students study along with local and exchange students from other countries. Because it is an exchange program, you do not have to pay tuition at the university abroad. While on exchange, you will live in a dormitory which will give you even more chances to communicate with other program participants in English. This experience is not only great for further improving your English proficiency; it is also an important opportunity to study and prepare for life after college. And best of all, it is an excellent opportunity to make lifetime friends from all over the world.

I studied at Yeungnam University for a year as an exchange student. I took courses with many foreign students from various countries, and they were really proactive in classes, for example, eagerly participating in discussions. I learned a lot from them through daily conversations, such as the importance of having my own opinion and expressing it actively. It was a truly meaningful experience for me.
