About the Program
The CIEE Study Center is based at Yonsei University, the most prestigious private institution of higher education in Korea. Founded in 1885, the school has 18 graduate schools, 21 colleges, and a student population of over 30,000, which includes more than 1,000 students from 20 countries. The University is located less than 20 minutes from downtown Seoul on a large sprawling campus that is hilly and forested. A full range of sporting facilities, including a fitness center, swimming pool, gymnasium, and basketball and tennis courts, are available.
 
Established in 2006, the CIEE Study Center in Seoul provides students a supportive environment in which to study at a top-ranked Korean university and experience life in Seoul. While participants enroll in Yonsei University courses, CIEE resident staff organize a special orientation and co-curricular program designed to provide a deeper understanding of Korea. Program participants take courses in English and Korean through the Underwood International College (UIC), a division of Yonsei University.


Seoul, South Korea
South Korea, one of the “economic dragons” in Asia, is a country that embraces both a modern and traditional way of life. Seoul, the capital, has many museums, galleries, and theaters, as well as historic monuments and sites. These give study abroad students a historical perspective into Korea’s dynastic periods, which established the intellectual and cultural foundation for modern Korean society. Seoul also offers many stores filled with the latest in mobile technologies, fashion, and “K-pop” music, providing a great backdrop to learn about modern youth culture in Asia.
 
The capital city of Seoul is South Korea’s cultural and educational heart, as well as its political and economic epicenter.

Academic Culture
With an international buddy program, university clubs, and a variety of cultural excursions, CIEE study abroad in South Korea gives you access to this wonderful culture and ensures an immersive international experience like none other. In addition to an intensive Korean language class, you’ll have access to a host of elective courses through direct enrollment at Yonsei University. From East Asian studies and communications to science and engineering, CIEE has the classes you need to indulge an interest and satisfy major or minor credit.

Student Life
You'll begin your study abroad experience in Seoul even before leaving home by participating in a CIEE online predeparture orientation. The Director of Student Services meets with students online and shares information about the program and site, highlighting issues that alumni have said are important, and giving you time to ask questions. When you arrive in Seoul you will participate in an on-site orientation program. The goal is to introduce you to the country, culture, and academic program, and provide practical information about living in Seoul. You also will be introduced to the academic requirements of the university, and are shown how to make the best use of campus facilities and services. During orientation, local students assist the international students. The services provided during orientation are maintained on an individual and group basis throughout the program. 
 
Housing
Housing is included in the study abroad program fee. Students typically live with other international or CIEE students in the SK Global House dormitory located on campus near the CIEE Study Center. Details about the facility are provided to students in their pre-departure materials. Students may live with their relatives in a homestay environment if available.
 
Meals are not included in the program fee and are the responsibility of the student. Meals may be eaten at a food court attached to the dormitory, other on-campus cafeterias, restaurants, and snack bars, and restaurants throughout Seoul. The dorm also has kitchens that students can use.
