If you are a UAFS faculty member interested in proposing an international agreement, please visit the Office of International Relations. Typically, international agreements are the products of relationships developed over time between faculty members at UAFS and their peers at other institutions. We appreciate your ideas and proposals.

University of Ulsan (Ulsan)

Ulsan International Program: UIP is an international summer program designed for foreign students who want to learn Korean culture, history, society, business as well as Korean language. The program consists of a broad range of classes and excursions. Participants visit a wide variety of historical and cultural sites around Ulsan and other cities in Korea. On top of them, the program includes field trips to industrial complexes as well.
During 4 weeks, participants experience many different aspects of Korea such as sitting on the floor during meals and sleeping on the floor at night. We recommend that participants famihtfloze themmenves with Korean culture by surfing the Internet and making Korean friends at home to better prepare for life in Ulsan. For those who are less tolerable toward other culture, the UIP is a splendid experience to broaden their views. The program includes a one-night stay at a Buddhist temple and a four-day visit to Seoul; presidential place, Asan hospital of the UOU medical school(arguably the largest in the world), DMZ, and etc.
Exchange programs to UOU:Exchange students from UAFS study at the UOU for one or two semesters as non-degree/exchange students. It is designed for foreign students who want to learn Korean culture, history, society, business as well as Korean language. The program consists of a broad range of classes and excursions. Participants visit a wide variety of historical and cultural sites around Ulsan and other cities in Korea. On top of them, the program includes field trips to industrial complexes as well.
