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. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic situation, the majority of the events may not be available. However, students can join the student clubs to participate in various social activities. 

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

Course Description

Check Yonsei's course catalog to find courses that have been offered in past semesters:

1. Click "Course Catalogue and Syllabus: Undergraduate & Graduate." This will open the course catalog.

2. Check "English Course Only" If you are not proficient in Korean.

3. Choose from among the Undergraduate Programs list, and choose the appropriate college for the subject you wish to explore. You must choose a college, but you do not need to choose any other drop downs if you prefer not to.

4. Choose the appropriate year and semester. Because catalogs may not be complete for the semester you plan to search for, you may need to choose that semester for the previous year. For example, if you plan to study abroad for Fall 2021, select "2nd semester" and "2020" for Fall 2020 classes. Keep in mind classes may change in availability before registration.

4. Click the magnifying glass to search. If no classes generate, there are either no English-taught classes in that subject, or the catalog hasn't been created for that semester. Note that only courses with an "O" in the "Exchange" column will be available to ISEP students.

5. For course descriptions, click the blue arrow under "course code-Sec.(-Lab)." For syllabi, click the purple arrow.
