Title [Important] Yonsei International Summer School 2020 Canceled
Name YISS Date 20.04.20 Hit 2,462
Dear prospective YISS students, 

Due to the growing concerns over COVID-19 and ongoing regulations including travel restrictions around the world, Yonsei University has made a difficult decision to cancel the Yonsei International Summer School 2020. This was not an easy decision to make, however, we feel the most prudent course of action at this point is to cancel the program because of health and safety concerns for our students, faculty, and staff. We would like to apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. The application withdrawal of the students will be handled by the YISS Team, and we will work directly with you to provide full refunds to those who have completed the payment process.


Despite the cancellation of the Yonsei International Summer School 2020, we will be offering the opportunity for the students to pursue their academic interests through Yonsei University’s regular Summer Semester (planned to be held from June 30th. to July 21st.). Although there are various courses offered during the Summer Semester, please note that most of the courses will be taught in Korean (only less than 15 courses will be taught in English).


The tentative courses of the Summer Semester will be available at the beginning of May and we will guide you with further information through our website and email around the time. 

The application page for Yonsei International Summer School 2020 will be closed shortly and re-opened by the end of April to receive students for the regular Yonsei University’s Summer Semester and not the YISS 2020.


Thank you for your understanding and your interest in our program again. We look forward to having the opportunity to host you at Yonsei University in the near future. Until then, we hope you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy.


For more information do not hesitate to contact us via / +82-2-2123-3985.


Best wishes,

YISS Team​​
