World Culture Awareness Programme


The World Culture Awareness Programme (WCAP) is organized by Gyeongsangbuk-do Office of Education in cooperation with POSTECH. This program provides POSTECH international members with the opportunity to introduce their home countries’ cultures to Korean students at local elementary, and middle schools. Participants will be paired with Korean translators who will be selected by POSTECH International Relations. Participants and translators will visit local schools together as a team, and introduce Korean students their home country’s culture, traditions, and history. This program will ultimately enhance students’ understanding and respect the cultures of other countries.
