Language of Instruction:
Yonsei University, established in 1885, is the oldest university in Korea. It is situated on a large, quiet, well-wooded campus in the heart of Seoul. The International Division of Yonsei University was created to provide study opportunities for non-Korean students of Asian studies. It provides a one-year program, taught in English, designed to give a broad introduction to Korea in its Asian and world setting.
All students are required to take an East Asian studies course titled “Introduction to Korea.” Beyond that, students choose courses from a variety of disciplines, including art, business, economics, history, law or philosophy. There is also opportunity for Korean language study.
Students have the option of living in Yonsei University’s international student dormitory or off-campus via arrangements they make themselves onsite. A mix of Korean and foreign students live in the dormitory to provide an international atmosphere, though the primary language there is English.
