GIST Mobility and Student Exchange Programs:
Your Access Point for Global Opportunities in Research and Education
For international exchange students, Korea is an amazingly vibrant country in which to study because of its seamless blend of ancient cultural traditions with an increasingly progressive society that is keen to adopt the latest technological advances. And nowhere is this blend more seamless than at the Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST).
Located in the city of Gwangju, which gave birth to the modern Korean democracy movement and which remains a shining beacon for human rights around the world, GIST offers international exchange students the unique opportunity to study with renowned faculty members along with the chance to explore Korea's rich cultural tradition and popular trends in the heart of Korea's Honam region with easy access to the rest of the country.
