Under the student exchange program, students enrolled at schools participating in exchange agreements with CUK may study at the Catholic University of Korea for one semester or one school year. For these exchange students, the university offers some courses entirely in English and there are lectures given in English in each department. With the permission of the professor who teaches the course in question, exchange students who speak Korean can also take courses given in the Korean language. Fees for the exchange program are paid to the school at which the exchange student is enrolled.
