    Hello i’ve read about this program and i’m kinda interested. But is the deadline for collecting all the form and other document January 2016 not 2017?

    Thankyou So much

  2. Kanika Suon

    I do not understand about the package of program fee that you have mentioned in the website. In total for new participants cost 1,400$ for all. But below that you said, this package is valid only for Indonesian. So how much in total for the new participants from other country?

    • Dear Kanika Suon,

      For non Indonesian participants, the ticket price from home country to Korea may vary. Therefore, we don’t include the flight ticket for non Indonesian (the package is only for Indonesian). Our organization homebase is located in Indonesia, so we still could coordinate about the flight. For participants come from other countries, you could check and buy the flight ticket by yourself. It could be cheaper or even more expensive depends on the airlines will you take and distance.

      Hope this information could answer your question.

      All best

  3. hello we are team of 11 students and we would like to attend the camp please is there group form we can fill in? i will be glad for your response
