Since its founding in 1885, Yonsei University has been synonymous with international education and exchange in Asia. As the most internationalized and liberal institution of higher learning in Korea, Yonsei enjoys by far the longest history of international education in Korea with the most extensive network of exchange partners worldwide.
Yonsei maintains the most extensive international network in Korea with over 65 partner institutions in 7 countries and educates the largest number of international students among Korean universities. JoongAng Ilbo ranked Yonsei University as the #1 comprehensive university in the 212 National University Rankings. It has held the position as top private university in Korea in the QS World University Rankings for many consecutive years.
Yonsei University provides excellent global programs for international students. Its English-based degree programs include Underwood International College (UIC), a highly selective four-year undergraduate school which provides an intimate, elite setting as a constituent college within the larger institution of Yonsei, the Graduate School of International Studies (GSIS), renowned for its global competitiveness, and Global MBA, an MBA program that is reflective of the modern business environment of the world.
International students are also exposed to a beautiful and culturally rich environment. Yonsei University is situated in a spacious, quiet, and well-wooded environment with a mountain, located just inside in the center of Seoul's metropolitan area. Its scenic campus had been described as "one of the most beautiful campuses in the world" by CNN's special program, EYE ON SOUTH KOREA. In addition to enjoying the beautiful environment, students can share special memories and experience Korean culture by participating in various Yonsei clubs and activities for international students.
The famous Yon-Ko Festival, the annual friendly sports matches between Yonsei University and Korea University and their surrounding festivities, is also a major must-see event for international students.
