Internship & Cultural Experience Overview


The Internship and Cultural Experience (ICE) program at Konkuk University is a five-week long program for students from English-speaking countries, such as the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada. Through the ICE program, participants gain hands-on experience teaching English to university students during summer vacation. It particularly fulfills the educational needs of students majoring in English education and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), but is also valuable to those with a general interest in Korea.
