Program Description:

Program Overview
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.

Academics
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 studying off-campus in the fall can bring up to 4.5 credits back to campus; students studying off-campus in the spring with interim can bring up to 5.5 credits back to campus.

Student Life
While studying at Yonsei, students can take advantage of life in the lively city of Seoul, as well as a variety of student organizations and facilities on campus.  For more information about student life at Yonsei, click here.

Accommodations/Housing
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.
