What is the Visiting Program?

The Visiting Program gives students from overseas universities the chance to study for one semester or one year in Korea at Hanyang University. This gives students the chance to study at one of Korea’s top tertiary institutions, which welcomes around 10,000 foreign students each year.

Importantly, this program does not require your home university or college to have a formal agreement with Hanyang University in order to participate in the program.

There are two start terms – March and September.
