Originally founded as a medical college, Soonchunhyang University is gaining a national reputation as an excellent institution of higher education. Located in the dynamically expending city of Asan which is less than 60 miles south of Seoul, Soonchunhyang University is readily accessible from the metropolitan Seoul area via public transportation. Now with hundreds of international students of various nationalities, the university is getting more diverse in the student body.

Students whose first language is not English are also eligible to participate in the internship program but need to have a fairly high level of conversational English since the exchanges are basically one hour of talking. After the students have been accepted, one of my native English speaking colleagues usually has a short 10 minutes Skype conversation with them to make sure their conversational English is high enough to participate. We have several students from Finland, Sweden, Germany and France in the past they all participated in the internship program. Just to be clear, the Skype conversation is not an interview and does not affect the student's acceptance into our exchange program.
