Activities
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 during winter break, 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 Korean cooking class, so why don’t you join us?

KU IWC will open online registration form starting on December 1st to reserve one’s spot for each extracurricular activities / field trips.
