Seoul Women’s University [SWU] offers an exchange program during the fall and spring terms. Successful semester exchange students earn 12–18 credits, applied appropriately. Samford students pay Samford tuition, SWU room, SWU board, round-trip transportation to Seoul, local transportation in Korea, medical insurance, health service fees, passport and visa costs, course materials, and personal and incidental expenses. Financial aid is available for those who qualify. Contact the Office of Financial Aid for information.

Also available is the Bahrom International Program, a three-credit, four-week summer program that guides students to experience various aspects of Korean culture: history, contemporary issues, religion and thought, architecture, food, film, politics, economics, music, and more. All participants are matched with a Korean partner. The language of instruction is English. Successful students receive three academic credits at the upper level from Samford to use as electives or as an appropriate course substitution on their transcripts. Students pay Samford tuition; there is a registration fee payable to SWU. Participants also pay additional personal expenses, including round-trip airfare. A valid passport and a student visa are required.
