Each year UNIST hosts an enriching summer program to help Korean youth prepare for a world that is increasingly shaped by science and technology.
In the summer of 2015, UNIST has launched the “2015 Summer Explorer@UNIST,” a special summer program for 250 high school students from across the country who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement. This is a four-day long event, held at the campus of UNIST from July 20 through 24, 2015.
The purpose of this pre-college summer program is to encourage students to have fun with science, technology, engineering, and math, while helping them discover valuable career and life skills in these key subject areas.
This intensive program, organized by UNIST Admissions Team will feature special lectures delivered by internationally-renowned experts who are at the forefront of their fields. During the course of the event, students will also have an opportunity to work with faculty, using cutting-edge facilities at UNIST.
“I am very fortunate to be able to participate in this program. This event has provided me with new insights into my future career endeavor,” says HyunJin Kim from DaeGun High School, Daegu, Korea.
This program will also include mock interviews with admission officers, special lectures on course exploration, visits to research centers, and various other practical sessions which will be helpful when selecting majors and careers.
“Making an appropriate major decision can often times a challenging task for many pre-college students,” says Hyug Moo Kwon, Dean of Admissions and Student Affairs at UNIST. He continues by saying, “We hope that this 2015 Summer Explorer@UNIST program will equip you with the tools and resources necessary for making good career choices.”
