Why visit to Korea?

Hike incredible mountains

IMG_5435The landscape of Korea is filled with mountain ranges, which makes hiking is a very popular sport and activity among Koreans. Especially around Seoul, there are dozens of trails that are located inside of the city. My favorite hike in Seoul is at Bukhansan Mountain- located just North of the city center. There are several trails on this mountain of all different levels, but the views at the top are magnificent. You can see the entire city of Seoul!

Beware of the way Koreans (typically older people) dress when they go hiking. It’s hilarious. They are decked out in hiking gear from head to toe, and they even carry skiing poles with them. It’s hard not to laugh when you see them.


Have fun on a budget

While Seoul may not be as inexpensive as other destinations in Asia, it can be traveled cheaply, which is why many backpackers and budget-minded travelers make a stop here.

Food, in particular, is very affordable. Street vendors, which are stationed throughout the city, are the cheapest option. You can get mandu (Korean dumplings), ddeokbogi(Korean spicy rice cakes), fried chicken and more for less than $3 USD. As long as you avoid the touristy restaurants, a traditional Korean BBQ meal will cost you no more than $12 USD (soju and beer included). Especially in my rural town, I can eat a Korean BBQ meal for $8USD (booze included).

Accommodations are just as reasonable. Hostels offer rooms for less than $10 USD per night, and cheap hotel rooms can be found throughout the city. However, if you want to experience even more Korean culture, consider staying at a jjimchilbang (a Korean spa). For 7,000 KRW per night ($7 USD), you’ll have the opportunity to experience Korean culture first-hand. The base price includes a mat for sleeping, access to the spa and showers and a change of clothes to sleep in. Depending on the jjimchilbang, you can also pay a little extra to get a massage or a haircut.


Developed transport networks,

Korea’s transport network is very extensive and enables speedy and comfortable traveling; regions are conveniently connected to each other by air, rail and highways. Riding on the internationally renowned KTX  bullet train will be an exciting experience for the students!

Learn respect in the culture

Korean culture is fascinating. The people live by a unifying “work hard, play hard” mentality. Whether they make their living as businessmen or construction workers, Koreans put every last effort into accomplishing success. This mindset is unstoppable and contagious.

Respect is heavily ingrained into Korean society, especially when someone interacts with an elder or someone they don’t know. For example, Koreans will always give a proper bow when greeting (they don’t shake hands), and they always use two hands when giving or receiving something as a sign of politeness.


High security and comfortless,

Korea is a very safe country for students to visit as it has an exceptionally low crime rate, advanced medical care and advanced international telecommunication. Students are able to walk around by themselves in safety.

Budget travel,

Although Korea is often perceived as an expensive travel destination, actually there are a wide variety of budget accommodation options, transportation passes and sightseeing discounts, which help to make Japan an affordable destination for even the most budget conscious traveler.



About Korea…

The Republic of Korea, or South Korea, consists of the southern half of the Korean peninsula in East Asia and many islands lying off the western and southern coasts. The largest island, Jeju, has the highest mountain in South Korea at 1,950 meters (6,398 feet). The terrain is mountainous, though less rugged than that of North Korea.

Major population and industrial centers are located in the northwest (Seoul-Incheon area) and southeast. To overcome distance and traffic congestion, South Korea launched a high-speed rail service between Seoul and Busan in 2004. English is taught as a second language in most schools, and more than 1.5 million ethnic Koreans reside in the U.S. In 2000 the government introduced a new phonetic system for transcribing Korean into English, changing names like Cheju to Jeju and Pusan to Busan.

Starting in the late 1970s this capitalist prodigy matured into the world’s 12th largest trading nation and a major exporter of cars, consumer electronics, and computer components—due in part to huge export-oriented conglomerates called jaebols. From 1980 to 1990 economic growth averaged 10 percent a year—more than three times that of the U.S. and twice that of Japan. However, the Asian financial crisis caused a deep recession. Economic growth rebounded in 1999, and the economy continues to perform well thanks to vibrant exports


Study in Korea…

South Korea has diverged considerably from its neighbor, developing into an internationally recognized Asian powerhouse in the fields of technology, education and tourism, to name but a few of its strengths. Embracing both tradition and modernity, this ‘Asian Tiger’ has much to offer international students, and ­­capital city Seoul is currently ranked among the world’s top 10 student cities.

Investment in education and research has been at the heart of the South Korea’s growth into the world’s 13th largest economy and the third largest economy within Asia. It’s this investment and growth in innovation and technology that has meant the country is known as one of the four ‘Asian Tiger’ economies, alongside Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan.

In 2004 the South Korean government set a target of attracting 100,000 foreign students to its universities by 2012, and by 2011 the country had enrolled over 85,000 international students from 171 different countries. Now the initiative has sets its sights even higher, with an aim of 200,000 international students by 2020.

As part of this ongoing focus on internationalization, several universities in South Korea, including Yonsei University, are opening new international campuses to meet growing demand, while five universities have opened branch campuses at the Incheon Global Campus (IGC), including the State University of New York (SUNY).

Cost of Studying and Living in Japan…

Accommodation in a university dormitory will usually be the most affordable option available to you as a PhD student in South Korea. The government estimates costs at between ₩320,000 and ₩1,075,000 (roughly equivalent to between $300 and $1000) per semester, varying depending on the number of individuals sharing a dormitory and the provision of other services such as catering.

Private accommodation designed for students will be available in and around most university regions. The cost for this is substantially higher than most university accommodation, however. In expensive regions rent can be as much as ₩20,000,000 ($18,000) per term and substantial personal deposits may also be required by some landlords. One alternative form of private accommodation is the Hasuk Jip, a form of boarding house. These can cost as little as ₩800,000 ($750) a month, but prices and facilities are very variable.

Your university should be able to offer you some information and advice on the arrangements for its own accommodation as well as the cost and quality of nearby Hasuk and other private options. You should contact them early as you may need advance confirmation of accommodation to demonstrate that you have sufficient financial means to support yourself during your studies.

General living costs

The majority of South Korea is relatively inexpensive to live in, though prices in Seoul can be substantially higher than in other regions.

Most universities will offer affordable catering on their campuses and a meal from these facilities can cost as little as ₩2,600 ($2.50). In general, South Korea’s native cuisine will cost less than food from western restaurant franchises, but either should be affordable. The South Korean government estimates the cost of food at roughly ₩300,000 ($300) per month for students using university catering.

Access to South Korea’s world-leading high-speed internet services will usually cost around ₩420,000 ($30) per month.

Personal banking in South Korea is available to students and is usually free. In order to open an account you will need to present your passport, together with your residency documents. Larger businesses will usually accept major international credit and debit cards, as will some ATM machines.

Once you have been enrolled for one semester (six months) you will be eligible to work part-time (up to 20 hours per week). Applications for employment will need to be supported by a letter of recommendation from your university and the presentation of your student visa. You should contact your institution for advice on local employment opportunities and supporting documents



A visa is needed for studying in Korea but most universities are more than happy to do the bulk of the paperwork after they accept you – to obtain a visa a little more directly, an application can be filled at your country’s embassy or consulate. If the university is doing the paperwork, not a lot has to be done, but proof of identity, proof of ability to speak/understand the language the course is taught in (either Korean or English, proof of acceptance from the university and proof of finance (such as a letter from your bank or student loans company) is all needed to get a visa from the embassy.

Make sure you know what paperwork you’re filling and where – keep tabs on everything and check and double-check you’ve done everything right – if you’re unsure, the embassy workers and the university will help you; that is what they’re there for, after all. Within 90 days of arrival in South Korea you (or an approved representative from your university) will need to visit the immigration office that oversees your region in order to receive an Alien Registration Card, which you will be required to carry at all times during your stay.



The main language of Korea is, of course, Korean; but English is taught in schools from an early age. It’s difficult to learn a language with few similarities to your first language though, and most Korean people find speaking and understanding English extremely difficult – some proficiency in Korean is recommended to anyone hoping to live here.

The Korean do understand written English much better than spoken English, though, so if you’re hoping to live and study here, it’s recommended that you carry a pad of paper and a pen around with you at all times (you will be a student, after all). The degree courses in Korea are either taught exclusively in English or in Korean, and proof of ability to speak and understand the language is necessary before starting the course.

Your passport (even if it’s an English/American one) may not count as proof of ability – so it’s a good idea to obtain a separate IELTS, TOEIC or TOEFL certificate, even if you just type it out in perfect English yourself.
