Why study in South Korea?

South Korea is a fascinating country and unsurprisingly one of Asia’s most popular study abroad locations for international students. The country is characterized by modern, bustling cities, subtropical islands, and rich culture as well as history. In Korea, a modern and trendy lifestyle meets the history of long-gone dynasties. The country has become well-known because of its thriving music and film industries (K-pop and K-drama). Low living costs and high quality of life are two other factors that make Korea so appealing. Furthermore, seven South Korean colleges were ranked among the top 200 universities in the world by Times Higher Education.  

All in all, when you study in Korea you will collect cultural experiences, live exciting student life, and invest in your career as well as personal growth. Set camp in South Korea for a semester, a year, a summer scholl or a full degree, it is up to you!

"The smell of cotton candy is laying in the air paired with laughter. It’s the first day of school at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies and the college clubs try to recruit new members. I love the atmosphere of my new home; busy students walking around, the smell of the metropolis and the excitement about something new that’s laying in front of me." Antonia, Germany

"The months in Korea were certainly some of the best in my life. In between a vivid nightlife, extraordinary food, deep conversations, a great number of wonderful friends from different cultures, a very special football club and the exchange life itself" Niklas, Germany.
