Degree studies: If you wish to study abroad in Korea, that is, to pursue a degree in a Korean university, first check the web site of the National Institute for International Education Development at http://www.studyinkorea.go.kr for details on eligibility, application, admission procedures, government scholarship programs, and others. The international admission process and the number of foreign students to be admitted are decided differently by each university, so you will then need to contact universities directly for their admission plan details. Basic requirements are that you must have completed more than twelve years of elementary to secondary education, you are not of a Korean nationality, and you have a good academic standing in previous education.
Bilateral Exchange: Korean universities hold numerous exchange programs with foreign universities, which are conducted on condition that the two universities concerned have contracted an agreement(MOU) for academic cooperation and exchange. Exchange programs, which usually last six months to one year for non-degree purposes, are established and administered by the universities themselves, so you should
(1) first check which Korean university holds an exchange agreement with your university, then
(2) contact the Korean university directly for information on their programs.
Transfer: Those who have obtained a bachelor’s degree from a four-year foreign university are eligible to transfer to a university in Korea as juniors. Universities are allowed to admit transfer students within 5% of the total junior student quota. Please check with each university for their individual admission requirements.
