Korean students, many who come from our partner universities in Seoul and Pusan, have the opportunity to take short courses lasting between 4 and 8 weeks in Preston at the University’s English Language Academy.
Korean students study English as Second Language and other English language courses suitable to their needs (which are assessed before the courses) and engage in cultural visits ranging from literary to sports to business themed tours. These courses have taken place during the Korean University vacations in winter and summer but also take place at other times of the year. Students mix with other students from all over the world and have the opportunity to interact with local people during the cultural events and in their own time.
Korean students Lim Sojung and Lee Hyoji came to UCLan for a summer course in English language in July and August 2015. They study at Pusan National University, which is UCLan's most recent academic partner in South Korea.
