What is PSSAP?
Yeong-Jin Choi, Reporter
Do you know what PSSAP is? PSSAP is an online global program which was test operatedduring summer vacation and held officially during winter vacation for Sangmyung students. It is very hard for the students to study abroad because of the worldwide Coronavirus these days. Therefore, Sangmyung University offers students a good chance to be educated internationally even located in our own house. Still, lots of students do not know what the program is. Consequently, I would like to ask for more students to give more attention to PSSAP.
What is the merit when we participate in the program? Students who join the program are given the chance to be firstly chosen at the seasonal language and culture education program, SSAP, that will be held atthe Seoul campus later on. Plus, if the students who qualify the certain level of scholarship attend the program more than 15 hours total, they can get the SSAP scholarship as well. The qualifications to attend the program are not as hard as we think. If students currently attend less than 7 semesters, achievea GPA over 2.0, and take more than 12 credit of the semester right before attending the program, they are ready to register for it. The PSSAP program is very convenient as it can be either registered or attended online.
It is very unfortunate that students who wants to participate in the global program held abroad are prohibited because of the Coronavirus. Before the virus happened, Sangmyung has offered a fair chance for the students to both study at the university abroad and experience foreign business by visiting their enterprises. Moreover, Sangmyung is very highly spoken for its global communication programs, which is a concept that includes exchange programs, multiple degree programs, and a language study abroad for a short period of time. Sangmyung not only offers Western universities for the students’ education. Aside from the Western countries, like the United States of America, the Czech Republic, Germany,and France, Asian universities located in China, Taiwan, Japan, Russia, and Kazakhstan are the major universities where Sangmyung has partnership.
Though Sangmyung university has offered such a good chance like PSSAP for students who wanted to be educated internationally at their own home, it is a misfortune that many of the students still do not know that this program exists. Therefore, I highly recommend that it would be amazing if students pay more attention to PSSAP for their future.
