Since 1999, the BIP has provided SWU students with opportunities to live with foreign students from partner and non-partner schools abroad, attend English-based lectures on diverse topics, and experience different cultures for four weeks during summer holidays.

The program is designed to improve participants’ English language skills via English-based group discussions, project presentations and essay writing, to help them appreciate Korean culture via field trips including historic palaces and DMZ tours and watching NANTA performance as well as diverse activities including learning Taekwondo and K-pop dance routines and ceramic art, and to promote the knowledge required of global leaders based on the understanding of other cultures through interactions with international participants.

The BIP is subject to change on a yearly basis. Please visit the International Exchange Team’s homepage for details.
