2022 ISP Cancelled

Dear valued students and esteemed partners,

Welcome to Office of International Affairs at Konkuk University.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we regretfully inform you the cancellation of 2022 International Summer Program (ISP) from Konkuk University, which was planned to be held from early July to early August, 2022. Despite the precautions and proactive efforts including Social Distancing against the spread of COVID-19 in Korea, there still are growing concerns over the society. Amid the expanding uncertainties, our international program is no exception, as well.

In accordance with careful discussions with international partners of Konkuk University and strict guidelines by Ministry of Health and Disease Control in Korea, we have decided to cancel our international programs for the safety of prospective students. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding in advance. We will also make sure to keep you updated for further information via our website.

We wish you all stay safe and healthy, and look forward to welcoming you again in the near future.

Best regards,
Office of International Affairs, Konkuk University
