Campus Asia Program

Study Abroad

The CAMPUS Asia Program is an educational collaboration between Korea, China and Japan to train a new generation of leaders of Asia. The project aims to nurture future leaders of East Asia with global competence and thorough understandings of East Asian values. The CAMPUS Asia Program also seeks to establish an East Asian academic community and seeks to deepen the mutual understanding among Korea, China, and Japan, and to pave a new path for East Asian regional integration.

SNU-GSIS, along with the School of International Studies at Peking University (PKU) in China and the Graduate School of Public Policy at The University of Tokyo (UT) in Japan, promotes the “BESETO Dual Degree Master’s Program on International and Public Policy Studies.” GSIS will take a leap towards becoming the hub of education and research in Asia by establishing ties with the top universities in East Asia.
