The following fields offer courses in Korean: colleges of business and economics, engineering, human ecology, law, liberal arts, science, sciences in education, social sciences, theology, life science and biotechnology.

Yonsei University is a dynamic learning environment that holds many events and activities throughout the year, including the annual Spring Mu-Ak Festival and the annual Yonsei-Korea University Friendship Games in the fall. Each school's student clubs organize programs in academic, cultural, athletic and artistic areas to bring students, faculty and alumni together. The spirit of creativity and youthful exuberance extends beyond the campus borders and into the Sinchon community. Students, famous musicians and vocal artists also perform concerts throughout the year.

These activities engage Korean students, who tend to take most of their courses only with other students from their department. Student clubs also provide a method for cross-departmental networking, and so there are many student clubs on campus, including mountain climbing and calligraphy clubs.

International students might be particularly interested in Yonsei Global, which consists of Yonsei University student volunteers. It aims to provide 30,000 Yonseians with a variety of world views and help them experience diverse cultures. Yonsei Global plans and prepares programs that create opportunities for Yonseians to meet students with overseas experience as well as exchange students every month. Contact yonseiglobal@yonsei.ac.kr for details.

The Mentors Club encourages interaction between international and regular Yonsei students on a one-to-one basis called the Buddy Program. International students are matched with Yonsei students in pairs based on their interests, hobbies and goals written on their applications. It aims to promote community and friendship and continuing cultural learning and interaction through shared experiences. Email: mentorsclub@yonsei.ac.kr

The International Yonsei Club is composed of Yonsei students who are interested in building stronger ties between Korea and the rest of the world. IYC is an excellent place to make new friends. IYC arranges retreats, activities, language exchanges, and forums. All are welcome to join. Email: mailtoiycian@yonsei.ac.kr
