Korea University (KU) was the first higher education institution to be founded by a Korean civilian and is strongly associated with the country's rapid economic and political development. KU hosts 35,600 students across Anam campus in Seoul - its main and largest - and Sejong campus in Sejong self-governing city.
The exchange agreement between King's and Korea University allows for up to 3 Full Year Equivalent (FYE) places for each institution. This equates to 3 students going for a full academic year OR 6 students for a single semester OR a mixture of the two.
Eligibility for King's students
Important: Final decision on students' study abroad application to their host institution rests entirely with that host institution. Students must also meet their departments’ academic requirements to obtain final departmental approval to study abroad. It is usually at least a 60% average prior to departure, however this can vary amongst departments. Students should double check with their Study Abroad Tutor if they are unsure of their academic requirements.
Korea University only accept students going into third year (students must have COMPLETED one year of study at point of application).
King’s students that wish to study abroad at this institution should check the ‘Undergraduate options by department’ page to see if this institution is indeed an option for them.
Estimated living costs
Please research the estimated living costs for this country. A reminder that King's students on exchange are not required to pay tuition fees to the host university, but you may incur administrative and/or orientation fees at the host. There may also be mandatory insurance costs, and transcripts may incur a fee.
Please also note that, if required, student visas often require applicants to supply evidence of financial support throughout the duration of the study abroad programme. Sometimes this will mean showing financial evidence for a specific amount, so please pay attention to the advice on this from the host institution.
