KU IWC cherishes all students’ valuable experience in Korea as they would choose KU IWC instead of spending winter holidays with family in their home countries. We believe that our students are coming to Korea not only because they aspire to obtain academic credits, but also broaden their horizons, learn about Korean culture and meet new friends. Therefore, we certainly highlight our extracurricular activities and field trips for KU IWC students! Plus most of them are complimentary except ski trip and Nanta performance show, so why don’t you join us?
※ The online registration for cultural activities will be open after the Orientation.
※ Please note that some sports are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
1. Ice Skating
Korea University Ice rink is filled with KU students’ passion for winter sports as KU Ice hockey team uses this facility for their practices and game. Also, a former South Korean figure skater who won 2010 Olympic champion, Yuna Kim, used this rink too since she went to Korea Univeristy few years ago. Now, you may think this rink is only for skillful skaters, but guess what, skating lessons are available for the students who have never learned how to ride an ice skate. So don’t be afraid of it, and have fun!
