“Workshop for Graduate School Abroad”
A SNU 국제교수회/Office of International Affairs “Workshop for Graduate School Abroad” will take place on 10 November 2018 at the Office of International Affairs (CJ International Building 152). The event will begin at 9:30 am and conclude at 12:00 pm. The workshop will consist of two general sessions that will have three concurrently running modules.
Session 1 (9:30~10:30): Topical
The focus will be on how different majors approach the application process. What are the expectations of applicants? What kinds of curricular and extracurricular activities should be highlighted in an application letter? What can you expect from your professors and fellow students in graduate/post-graduate school?
Modules will fall into these general categories:
- Humanities/Social Sciences
- Engineering/Natural Sciences
Session 2 (10:45~11:45): Area
The focus of this session will be on how admissions are handled in different areas of the world. How are admissions deadlines and fees administered in these regions? What are the “hidden costs” of living in different places? We will discuss academic cultures of the different parts of the world relative to Korean academic culture.
The focus will be on these general areas:
- Asia (China/Japan)
- North America
Each session will have a brief presentation followed by a question and answer period. Students should be prepared to come with questions to the sessions. Advice will be general in nature, and not specific to your circumstance. In other words, there will not be sufficient time for proofreading of letters of application or resumes. Please prepare general questions about the application process or academic life abroad.
OIA will purchase pizza and have it available from 12:00 pm onwards for all participants. This will give students opportunities to talk to professors more directly.
For seating arrangements and lunch order purposes, it would be greatly appreciated if you could take some time to complete the following survey until November 3rd.
