Students who meet certain academic standards are entitled to receive an Academic scholarship provided by the GSIS (who are enrolled for 9 or more credits in a semester and who have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 out of 4.5)

Exchange programs

The GSIS program places great emphasis on finding opportunities for students to study abroad and become a part of special community that stands at the forefront of the globalization of Northeast Asia and the rest of the world. This reflects the international orientation of GSIS. Thus, faculty and staff members work hard to help students find exchange programs at foreign universities

Internship Program

The Internship Program is an extension of Ajou's GSIS program in order for foreign students to obtain knowledge and practical experience at a Korean company or government offices for several months. A formal education in International Studies in this era of globalization is in itself a valuable asset for any career. In this manner, internship has become a vital part of education that students can put into practice the things they have learned in class. However, internship opportunitites are limited in the given circumstances and GSIS announces its openings when available.
