Internships

GSP emphasizes pragmatic learning methods and internships, which provide a great opportunity to bridge the gap between theory and practice and to gain exposure to professional opportunities. Through internships, students are able to integrate and use their knowledge from classes, develop further competence through intensive field experience under educational supervision, and become better acquainted with the various work places and setting in which they expect to be employed. Therefore, GSP places particular emphasis on internship and especially on international experience.Read More ¡·

Identification

The collaborative effort by the university, professors and students make internship placements successful. Kyung Hee University and GSP also offer respective placement programs such as the Neo-Renaissance UN/INGO Internship Program and the GSP-Washington Center internship. Overseas internships are largely promoted via the GSP-MKE-KISS global network.
