Program Description:
ISEP Direct Seoul
  • Live and study in Seoul’s university district, Sincheon-Hongdae, an energetic neighborhood bustling with students from Seoul’s major universities! Join them for a quick bite at a nearby cafe, browsing the boutiques, or simply checking out some of Seoul’s best street performers. ISEP students live in guaranteed housing in modern apartments with a private bedroom.
  • For students seeking Korean cultural immersion at a prestigious university conveniently located in the heart of Seoul, Yonsei University provides over 800 courses offered in English in a variety of fields.  
  • Local ISEP Program Advisor, Brian Min, assists students in Seoul by coordinating housing, sharing events, and connecting them with each other. Yonsei University staff also support incoming students, and Yonsei Global and the Mentors Club offer lots of sightseeing and social outings for international students. 
  • Students participating in Yonsei University's extensive global program offerings can partake in one of the best programs in Asia due to its globally renowned faculty and innovative curriculum. 

Study in the capital of K-Pop and Asian pop culture! Seoul, a major business, tech, and political hub, is a whirlwind of action and cutting-edge fashion. A blend of beckoning street food, blazing neon, energetic nightlife, and historic architecture keeps everyday life exciting. When it’s time for a change of pace, explore South Korea’s beautiful natural landscapes, take a trip to the beach, or head into the mountains—it's all easily accessible. 

Yonsei Global offers students the opportunity to serve the Korean community and experience a different aspect of Korean culture. For example, volunteer at a care center for the elderly or at the children’s ward at Yonsei Severance Hospital. At the end of the volunteer program, it is common to go on a short overnight trip and play games, eat, and drink to get to know the other volunteers. 

Brian (Kyung Hwan) Min, ISEP’s Seoul-based team member, provides extra support for ISEP students in Seoul. Brian has an academic background in Psychology (BA), Women’s and Gender Studies (BA), and Higher Education and Student Affairs (MA). After studying in the US, Brian returned to Korea in 2015 and served in the Air Force. He has also worked in intercultural education, tourism, online teaching, and entrepreneurship (start-up). Brian is passionate about student success and fostering an inclusive and safe environment. 

What We Love About Yonsei University 
We love that so many notable alumni attended Yonsei University, including Bong Joon-ho (Director of the award-winning movie Parasite), Seo Jang-hoon (former professional basketball player), Jun Hyun-moo (South Korean TV personality), Kang Kyung-hwa (South Korean diplomat and politician), and so many more. You will walk the same halls that these world-renowned alumni once walked and learn from some of the same professors that taught them!
