Seoul, Korea Exchange Program

The Auburn University exchange program in Seoul, Korea is hosted by Sejong University. In 1940, Sejong University created a place of learning dedicated to excellence in education and research. Navigating successfully the rough seas of Korea’s modern history, Sejong has faithfully continued its tradition of producing competitive graduates that society required and cultivating the latest innovations that served as the new engine of economic growth. Years of this endeavor have resulted in one of Korea’s most distinguished and prominent academic institutions, and Sejong is now poised to make another leap, aiming to become a university with global recognition.

Exchange students will be placed in the International Student Dormitory because of the length of their stay. Students will also have the opportunity to become involved with the Student Association at Sejong University in a variety of clubs, organizations, and activities
