KAIST, South Korea’s first and top research university for science and technology, is growing into a globally competitive institution by producing elite scientists and engineers. KAIST is comprised of three campuses: the Main and IT convergence campuses are located in Daejeon and the Business School in Seoul, all teaching most undergraduate courses in English.
Course Equivalency: 5.0 credits at UofT = 32 credits. Note: Instead of getting a transcript from the host university, admitted students must enroll in an Independent Research (or similar) course in the equivalent department at U of T.
Departmental approved pathways: Engineering not-for-credit (You do not pay U of T tuition)
Housing: Student dormitory
Funding: Students applying to KAIST for 12 weeks should also apply for Globalink Research Award. Successful GRA applicants will not be considered for $3000 CIE funding and IE Award because the GRA amount is greater of the two.
