Greetings from Korea University in Seoul

국제처장 사진As Vice President for International Affairs, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website, the virtual home for all things international at Korea University.

With our university slogan of "Proactive KU" the Office of International Affairs is leading the way in opening the university to the world and connecting our academics and researchers with partners from across the globe.

Having initiated our internationalization programs back in 2003, we have come a long way not only in terms of improving the quality of the educational experience, we offer our students, but also our research output, and the reputation of our institution world-wide.

Yearly, we welcome over 4,000 international students from over 50 different countries. We also send out about 1,200 Korea University students to our many partner institutions around the world. In addition we host over 1,000 foreign visitors to our campus each year, administer Asia's most popular international summer program and organize high-level conferences and events attended by world leaders and top academics.

As you can imagine the Office of International Affairs is a dynamic and productive environment and we are proud to be an important part of the Korea University family.

With this in mind, I invite you to explore the variety of resources on our website. Here you can find detailed descriptions of our various offices, outlining what we do and who we are. From developing and maintaining important university partnerships to details about study abroad programs and student life at Korea University - it is all here for you.

If you can't find what you are looking for, be sure to contact us directly. It would be our pleasure to assist you in any way we can. In the meantime enjoy your virtual visit to Korea University.
