  • 1. 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.
    • UIP equips students with a broad understanding of other cultures. It helps participants respect and accept people with unfamiliar backgrounds. Since participants come from all over the world, students share a wide range of cultural interests, backgrounds and traditions.
    • The main topic of the UIP is 'The Tradition & Industrialization of Korea'. The geographical location and economical role of Ulsan give participants an unmatched opportunity to explore Korea's rich past and cutting edge present. Ulsan is called "The Industrial Capital of Korea" due to the vast volume of exports of world-leading corporations. In 2007, the city accounted for 17.1% of all national exports. Automobile, shipbuilding and petroleum industries represent the bulk of Ulsan's economy. Ulsan is also a home of the largest automotive, shipbuilding, and petroleum refinement factories in the world.
    • The ancient and historic city of Gyeongju is only a 30 minute drive from Ulsan. Geyongju was the capital of the Silla Dynasty from 57 BC to 935 AD. Many cultural heritages including royal tombs and temples have been well-preserved. Come to Ulsan where the past and the present intertwine to form the unique culture, that is Korea.
