Kyungpook National University (KNU) is consistently ranked number one among Korean National Universities. Daegu, where KNU is located, is considered the birthplace of Korean culture and tradition.

KNU's Global Summer School brings students together from all over the world and takes place over two sessions. During Session 1, a four-week session, students experience a unique intercultural experience through thought-provoking courses on global and Korean issues, as well as Korean Language and Culture. During Session 2, a two-week session, students only focus on Korean Language and Culture.

Cultural experiences offered through the Global Summer School usually include K-Pop Dance, Taekwondo, Hanbok Trial, Tea Ceremony, etc. Students also go on field trips to places such as Busan and have an authentic experience in Daegu exploring the Seomun Market, 83 Tower, and more.

Students work with BSU’s Study Abroad Office and the KNU International Office to determine course availability.

Students earn BSU transfer credit for their courses at KNU. Students are required to complete BSU transfer credit forms prior to departure.

Students reside in KNU student housing in twin rooms.
