The Korean language course, the King Sejong Institute, at the KCCUK is a social education course that not only teaches the Korean language but also introduces Korean culture to students. The course includes a wider introduction to all aspects of Korean Culture through language. Upon completing the course students will be able to express themselves in Korean on a vast range of topics.

Each course lasts 3 terms and takes 1 year to complete. For 2022, we are offering the entire course online and so applications are open to anyone from within the United Kingdom. For students of the higher levels, we ask you to take a brief level test (Reading, Writing and Speaking) in order to confirm that you are suitable for the level you have applied for.
