Yonsei International Summer School (YISS) has a summer internship program that offers corporate and research internships for academic credit. Internships in a variety of fields such as information technology, marketing, business, public relations, and more may be possible. Opportunities are limited and competitive. Most corporate internship providers require intermediate Korean language ability.

Key Facts

  • Internships are optional and you must apply before arrival
  • Space is limited and the program is competitive


Nearly all internships require you to be fluent in Korean. The language expectation varies by placement.


You’ll take a course to guide your internship experience. To meet the course requirements, you may be required to participate in meetings, discussions, journaling, and a final project.

  • The internship replaces a course
  • Pass/no pass credit


To arrange your internship, you must apply to the internship program separately and before the YISS deadline, which is typically in April. Before course registration in early June, YISS will inform you of acceptance into the internship.

See the YISS internship website for details.
