Sejong university

Study Korean at Sejong University. Founded in 2008, the Center for International Education (CIE) at Sejong University inherits the spirit of King Sejong, the inventor of Hangul - the Korean alphabet.

Seeking to provide quality education to international students all over the world, CIE has a pool of full-time instructors who have years of experience teaching Korean.

As a student's experience in Korea is only complete when one gets to experience its culture, CIE also provides additional cultural experiences outside of teaching language education. Experiences include K-POP clubs, language exchanges with Korean students, and more.

With the combination of quality education and various cultural experiences, the CIE of Sejong University aims to help students truly experience Korea, and ultimately find their values and visions through their time in Korea. This is shown in the CIE's slogan: "Shape Your Dream!"
