  • Exchange Student Program
    Exchange Student ProgramK-Arts offers exchange program to students from partner schools around the world, and is open to both undergraduate and graduate students. Exchange students from partner schools will be able to take classes here as K-Arts students, earn credits required for graduation, and expand their global perspectives by experiencing new culture. Experience as exchange student in K-Arts will become an opportunity to challenge themselves, encourage their creative activities, and broaden their scope in a different cultural environment.

    Those who are selected as exchange students pay tuition fee in their respective schools and take classes in K-Arts for one or two semesters. Credits earned and exchange semesters are recognized and transferred to their home universities through relevant procedures. However, students cannot pursue or receive a degree in K-Arts as exchange student. The number of exchange schools and students are set every year through consultations between K-Arts and partner schools in a balanced way.
  • Exchange Program with Schools which did not sign an agreement with K-Arts
    K-Arts holds joint performances, exhibitions, workshops, invitational lectures, and other exchange programs throughout the year with schools or cultural institutions abroad without having to establish partnership agreement. However, we are also open to become partner institutions to provide students at home and abroad with more opportunity to grow as international or transnational artitsts. Therefore, those who want to join K-Arts as exchange student should check this issue with international office of their home school where they plan to earn the degree.
