Spend a semester or year in Seoul at Kyunghee University! Kyunghee University is located in a fantastic area, surrounded by restaurants and activities. The Office of International Affairs provides a buddy program, activities, and excursions for exchange students. KHU is located on the Seoul Metro, easily accessing the entire metro area.
COURSES AND CREDITS
Courses are taught in English and Korean and are available in hospitality management, tourism, management, and business. Korean language is available in the mornings and is very intensive.
All students will be registered by the Study Abroad Office as full-time students during their semester abroad, which is 12 hours for undergraduate students and 9 hours for graduate students. Undergraduate students must return with the equivalent of at least 12 hours of credit on their host university transcript (9 hours for graduate students). However, students must enroll in 30 ECTS (equivalent of 15 hours) at EUR. Students can take additional hours and are not limited to the minimum full-time requirement while abroad. All courses are graded on an ABCDF scale. There is no Pass/Fail.
Housing is available in on-campus dormitories or students can find housing independently. KHU assists students with securing a dormitory room.
For the Kyunghee University exchange, students are responsible for paying:
- Current, full-time, UM tuition (including non-resident fees, if applicable)
- UM Study Abroad fee (includes the cost for international health insurance)
- Housing costs (details and payment are usually handled between the student and the host university)
- Travel expenses, books and supplies, personal living costs, passport and visa fees (all the responsibility of the student)
Students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing to study abroad and must have a cumulative 2.5 GPA. Additional or more stringent requirements may apply depending on the program.
In general, financial aid will apply to UM study abroad programs. All students should review the study abroad information on the Financial Aid Office website. It is the student’s responsibility to meet with a financial aid advisor to discuss how aid packages apply to study abroad. Third party scholarships may also be available for specific programs, so students should discuss study abroad early and often with the Study Abroad Office and the Financial Aid Office.
For current tuition costs, the Office of the Bursar provides a tuition estimator.
