Temple University to start a 1+3 program with Sejong University in Seoul

On January 9, Temple University (Pennsylvania, USA) has signed an affiliation agreement with a prestigious Korean university, Sejong University (世宗大学校), to establish the Sejong-Temple Undergraduate Program. Students who enroll in this program will spend the first year at Sejong and the remaining three years at either Temple's Main Campus or Japan Campus. Upon successful completion of the program, students will earn a Temple University bachelor's degree.

This Sejong-Temple Undergraduate Program will be an attractive option for Korean students who wish to earn an American university degree, since it enables them to make the necessary preparation for study abroad in Korea while taking undergraduate credit courses that can be easily transferred to Temple University from the second year. Temple University has eight campuses inside and outside the US, including its Japan Campus, and offers more than 100 undergraduate majors in 17 schools and colleges. The estimated first year (2012) enrollment into this program is approximately 100. Press Release
