K-Arts has been promoting academic and cultural exchange programs with world-renowned art schools (as partner schools) and institutions: exchange student programs; joint performances, exhibitions; co-production; master classes; and workshops. These programs are held throughout the year
K-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.
There are frequent joint performances, exhibitions and other exchange programs throughout the year with schools abroad which do not have a signed agreement with K-Arts. And we are open to become partners with great schools around the globe. Therefore, those who want to join the schools as exchange students should check this issue with the appropriate study abroad, international or overseas office of the schools.
To study in K-Arts, students should be fluent in English or Korean. Applicants from non-English speaking countries should report English (or Korean) proficiency test results to the School. As different majors require different levels of language proficiency, students may not be qualified for taking some courses depending on their language level. They should contact External Affairs Division of K-Arts to check this issue.
If exchange agreements were signed at a School level (not University as a whole), those who apply for the School have a priority in terms of student selection.
When students of non-English speaking countries have a native level of English proficiency, they are exempted from reporting language test results.
Exchange students should have D-2 visa issued with the Certificate of Admission from K-Arts after they arrive in Korea. Foreigners (of most countries) can stay for 90 days in Korea without visa. However, Certificate of Alien Registration is required to stay more than 90 days. D-2 visa is issued for the exchange students in K-Arts.
Students pay tuition fees to their Home institutions. All other expenses including dormitory, transportation, school books and food are covered by themselves.
Students can save their living expenses by applying for various scholarships.
Currently no scholarship program by K-Arts is available for exchange students
