Student Exchange Program The Student Exchange Program is a system in which students of HUFS and an overseas partner university, based on an agreement on credit and student exchanges, study in the other university for a specific period of time and get their credits accepted by the university of their original affiliation.

7+1 Study Abroad Program The 7+1 Study Abroad Program is a plan in which students study in an overseas university for at least 1 out of the total 8 semesters. The program has been intended to enhance the global mindset of HUFS students.

Self-financed Study Abroad Program The Self-financed Study Abroad Program is a plan in which HUFS students may study in overseas universities and get the credits exchanged into the HUFS system. Since students can choose any university (4-year colleges only) that department approves, they have more options compared to those on the Exchange or Visiting Student Program.
