Korea University Business School will hold a pre-departure ceremony for exchange students set to go abroad for Spring 2018.

At the ceremony, students will have to fill out documents needed prior to departure. As we have previously announced at the orientation, all participating students for the Spring 2018 Outbound Student Exchange Program MUST attend. Students who do not attend will not be able to go abroad. If there is a reasonable excuse for not being able to attend the ceremony, students are advised to send an email to choi3225@korea.ac.kr stating why they cannot attend and the dates and times they are available for coming into the international office to get information they missed out on.

It is not mandatory for students who have taken part in the exchange program before to attend this ceremony, but they are strongly advised to attend as they 
still have to submit the following required documents: ① A copy of an international student insurance card, ② A parent/guardian’s consent form, ③ A pledge form signed by the exchange student, ④ A departure form filled in by the student, ⑤ KUBS Notice of Arrival Spring 2018, and ⑥ Partner university transfer credit approval form (strongly advised to get prior credit approval via email).

◆ Date and Venue of Ceremony
   - December 22, 2017 (Fri); 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.   [Ahn Young Il Hall in LG-POSCO Building (6F)]

 Documents Needed for Submission

(1) A copy of an international student insurance card

- If you have signed up for insurance at the partner university, you do not need to apply for additional insurance coverage plans. (If you are unsure, make inquiries on your insurance to the manager at your exchange university.) If you do not have a university insurance, you have to sign up for an international student insurance (different from a traveler’s insurance) and must submit a copy of it to KUBS International Office (If you can’t submit it on the day of the ceremony, please submit it by January 15th. In case of having to apply for insurance upon arrival at your exchange university, scan a copy of that insurance coverage once you do get one and email it to the exchange program manager at KUBS as soon as possible (even if it is after January 15th, send it in ASAP).

(2) Parent/Guardian Consent Form 
- A consent form has been uploaded onto this announcement – download it and after having it signed by your parent/guardian, bring the form to the pre-departure ceremony.

(3) Pledge Document signed by the exchange student 
- The participating student must download the pledge form uploaded onto this announcement and hand sign it before submitting it at the ceremony (this will be used for attendance checking purposes, so make sure it is handed in).

(4) Exchange University Departure Form 
- In case the student is not able to attend the pre-departure ceremony, he or she must fill it out, scan it, and send it via email prior to departure.
(5) (Mandatory) KUBS Notice of Arrival Spring 2018

- You must scan and email the form signed by manager at your exchange university within 14 days from your arrival (email it to choi3225@korea.ac.kr).

(6) (Optional) Partner University Transfer Credit Approval Form (refer to uploaded file, fill in the required information, and submit via email) 
- Have your courses/ transferrable credits reviewed via email (refer to notices on the community board for directions or visit the international office for further questions).
- The form is uploaded on the community board.
- This process must be completed before making the final confirmation on the courses you plan to take at the exchange university.

*** If needed, a pledge form signed by the exchange student, a departure form filled in by the student, KUBS Notice of Arrival Spring 2018
can be provided at the pre-departure Ceremony.
