Today, South Korea is particularly attractive to international students, with its capital, Seoul, ranked in the top ten most student-friendly cities in the world. One of the four ‘Asian Tiger’ economies, South Korea has invested heavily in education, technology and research, but it is also renowned for its picturesque, green countryside, replete with cherry trees and historic temples, its subtropical islands and its modern cities. If you are interested in studying somewhere with cutting-edge research facilities and beautiful surroundings, then South Korea may be the place for you. Read on to find out about its top universities.
Seoul National University
One of South Korea’s three acclaimed SKY universities, Seoul National University is the most prestigious university in South Korea and spends more on its students per capita than any other university in the country. It has two campuses in Seoul: a medical campus in Jongno-gu, in the city’s centre, and the main campus in Gwanak-gu, in the city’s south, close to the Seoul Museum of Arts. A third campus is situated in Pyeongchang-gun, in the mountains 180 km southeast of Seoul and approximately 700 m above sea level. Dormitory accommodation for undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as their families is available at the university’s Gwanak Campus.
Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST)
KAIST is South Korea’s first research-led science and engineering institution and is currently ranked as the country’s top university. The majority of courses offered at KAIST are in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects. Located in Daejeon, South Korea’s fifth-largest metropolis and a thriving technological research centre, the university is close to the Yuseong Hot Springs, which students can use to unwind. The university operates seven female and 15 male dormitories as well as two apartment complexes for married students.
Korea University is one of South Korea’s prestigious SKY universities and is ranked number three in South Korea. The university is known for having one of the best law programmes in the country, and it also excels in modern languages, chemical engineering, social policy and administration, politics, and accounting and finance. The university’s Seoul Campus is divided into four sections, all of which are close to shops, restaurants, bars and historic Buddhist temples. The campus hosts accommodation for over 600 international students in suites and dormitories.
The fourth ranking university in South Korea, Sungkyunkwan dates back to 1398; its main campus, the Humanities and Social Sciences Campus, is situated in the centre of Seoul and is home to two ancient ginkgo trees, believed to have been planted in 1519, which the university has adopted as its symbol and which have now been recognised as a national monument. Aside from its historic main campus, the university has a campus dedicated to the natural sciences in Suwon, 45 km south of Seoul. On- and off-campus dormitory accommodation is provided in both Seoul and Suwon.
One of the oldest universities in South Korea, Yonsei University is another of the distinguished SKY institutions and is ranked fifth in the country. The university’s main campus is in the vibrant neighbourhood of Sinchon, Seoul, famous for its nightlife, entertainment and shopping. The Yonsei International Campus is situated in Songdo International Business District, 65 km southwest of Seoul. All students at this campus are required to live in one of its dormitory houses for at least the first year of study. The Yonsei Wonju Campus, a secondary campus to Sinchon, is located in Gangwon Province, approximately 130 km east of Seoul. It comprises 500 acres and is surrounded by thick forests and a serene lake.

I had my 70,000-word PhD thesis edited promptly and to an exceptional standard by Elite Editing. It sped up my completion date and helped me finish on time, which is the most important thing. The service was fantastic with excellent communication; so I was informed at each stage of the process. I would recommend Elite Editing to everyone, especially those who are close to completing their thesis.
