    I came here last year as an exchange student. The very first impression of Yonsei University was so good indeed the campus was so beautiful (specially gardens were most memorable). Also the students here are so friendly and kind even though I haven’t studied other countries except for here but anyhow everything is just perfect so far. As for living cost near the university is so cheap. I think this area is the cheappest in Seoul but there are so many places to hang out, not to mention about 24 hours convenient stores, bars and cafes.

    Great study abroad program for foreign students. The dormitory is very nice and almost new. The Korean language program is intense and quite good if you’re looking to pick up the language. This university is highly rated as one of the best in Asia, and one of three best in Korea.
