Students who want to know what it means to live like a local in all areas of the country will have no excuse not to when the transportation is as brilliant as it is in Seoul. There really are no excuses for not exploring nearby towns will charming arts and culture. Just a short distance to the west, you can access Incheon’s port – where the modern world entered Korea. Just south, you’ll run into Suwon, most known for its World Heritage fortifications built by Joseon dynasty ruler King Jeongjo. 

Inside the classroom, students have the opportunity to study across a variety of different fields and also further their language skills through the intensive Korean language program on campus. Outside of the classroom, students can take advantage of the buddy program, participate in cultural parties, and view Korean arts and performances. Students are sure to improve their Korean and make lasting memories at Ewha University.
