Internships for Seoul, Korea

Students enrolled in the summer program at Yonsei University are eligible to participate in a 2-credit internship (approximately 14 hours a week) on top of their regular academic course(s). Interested students will need to complete a separate internship application. Placements are not guaranteed as final decisions are made by the individual companies. The internship begins prior to the start of classes so selected students should be prepared to arrive early.

Students can choose from a variety of corporate and research opportunities. The Corporate Internship Program offers you direct exposure to global corporate settings in the heart of Seoul, taking advantage of Yonsei University's vast alumni networks, and strong ties with business and educational partners. The Research Internship Program offers selected students the opportunity to participate in research projects or work as an intern in research centers or organizations at Yonsei University. Research center placements are limited to specific majors, usually within the STEM field. Regardless of the internship program, some placements require an advanced level of Korean language as well as relevant academic/professional experience.

See Yonsei’s Research Internship page and Corporate Internship page for further details and placement options.
