Exchange at YonseiHey potential Yonsei exchange student. In this report I am shortly going to describe my exchangeexperience at Yonsei University and I hope it will help you to choose Yonsei as your exchangedestination. If you want some more information about it or if you want to personally talk to me feel freeto contact me: paolo.m.cola@gmail.com1. General InformationUniversity: Yonsei UniversityCountry: South KoreaCity: SeoulAddress: 50 Yonsei-ro, Sinchon-dong, Seodaemun-guPeriod: September-December

2. PreparationBefore leaving your country to go to South Korea the most important things that you have totake care of are:- your student VISA- insurance- Course Registation- AccomodationIt is mandatory to have a student visa and an insurance plan before going to Korea. A visa ismandatory if a person stays more than 90 days in Korea which means that since your exchangeis 4 months you surely need one. Once you have been accepted at Yonsei University, they willsend you all the documents you need in order to apply for a student visa. The visa is a singleentry so if you wish to travel you need to apply for an Alien registration card (I will explainbetter in the arrival section).Yonsei requires you to have an insurance that covers you in Korea. Some people have aninsurance that cover them worldwide if for you this is not the case you need to contact yourinsurance to ask if they offer this possibility or you have to find one. The one I bought is calledAmieasy and I paid 160 euros to cover all my stay.Course registration opens up few weeks before the start of the semester. The registration ismade of multiple rounds because spots are limited so if you do not get accepted in one or moreof the courses you have selected you have the time to apply for a different one. When you pickthe courses you have to grade the importance of the course for you. You have 60 points andyou have to distribute them among the chosen courses. The more points you gave to a coursethe higher the probability you will be accepted.Regarding the accommodation, the are two possibilities: living on campus or living off-campus.If you choose to live on campus the are two different dorms SK Global and International House.The firs one offers both single and double rooms which have a private bathroom whileInternational House has only double rooms and the toilettes and showers are shared but therooms have a small fridge. In order to be sure to find a place in the dorms you need to apply forit trough the website right after the registration opens since the demand is really high and thespots are limited (I did not get accepted for example). Anyway, I think the best solution is to liveoff-campus because you have total freedom. You can try to find a place on the Facebook pageHousing in Seoul, on Airbnb or Goshipages, a website where you can find goshiwon. A goshiwonis like a dorm where everybody has a small fully-furnished private room and shares the kitchen.I have lived in a goshiwon is not very comfortable due to the size of the room (around 4 or 5square meters including the bathroom) but it can be really cheap. These are the links for theFacebook page and ul/?fref ts

3. ArrivalWhen you arrive at the airport the most convenient way to get to you housing is by metro.There is a train that goes from Incheon airport to Hongik Station which is only on metro stationaway from Sinchon where most likely you are going to live. The train ticket costs only around 5euros and the rides are frequent.If you opted for the dorms, you can check in a week before classes start and you will be given aroom key. After checking in you can go explore the campus and maybe Sinchon. One weekbefore the star of the semester there is an orientation day, I suggest you to go because they willgive you lots of useful information and during this day you start to meet people and buildfriendships.During the orientation it will be explained how to apply for an alien registration card.Remember to do this as fast as possible if you plan to travel outside Korea. Obtaining this cardwill require you more efforts and time than you think. You can apply for the ARC only troughKorean computers so you need to use those at the university. Also when applying choose formail delivery, this will cost you 3000 and saves you a lot of time and hassle.4. CoursesAt Yonsei there are multiple courses taught in English available ranging from economics andbusiness to history and cinema. As an ESE student you need to obtain a minimum of 24 ECTSwhich means 12 Korean credits. Regular undergraduate courses at Yonsei are worth 3 Koreancredits that means you need to successfully finish at least 4 courses. The maximum amount ofcredits you can take is 18. I suggest you to subscribe for all the courses you can and then, duringthe add and drop period, pick the ones you like the most.Even though Koreans spend most of their times in the library and they are famous for beingclever and dedicated to work, I think the subjects are pretty easy especially if compared to whatwe are used to do. The material is not difficult in general and the exams are short and not reallychallenging. At Yonsei attendance is compulsory so you need to make sure to not skip too manyclasses otherwise you fail the course.The four courses I have taken are the following: Strategic Management, Advertising,Entrepreneurship & Strategy and Public & Political Economics. Strategic Management was quiteinteresting and the professor was lovely and funny. We had to do different group assignments

that counted for the biggest part of the final grade. Advertising was for sure the most helplesscourse I have ever taken in my life. The professor was really disorganized and sometimes shedid not show up for the class. Nobody really understood what we were actually studying sincethe classes as well as the material had no structure. The course I have found the mostinteresting is Entrepreneurship & Strategy. During the course we talked about stories ofsuccessful entrepreneurs and we learnt how to write a business plan and the most effectiveways to present it to potential investors. The classes were really interactive and interesting. Thecourse is not too difficult and I would definitely suggest you to attend it if you manage to find afree spot. Public & Political Economics was maybe the most requiring course I have taken. Theprofessor was funny and even though his English was not the best he was completelyunderstandable but I did not really enjoy the course. The material could have been even quiteinteresting but it was poorly explained and it was more about learning it by hart instead of fullyunderstand the concepts.5. FinancesLife in South Korea is cheaper than in Netherlands but it really depends on what. Eating at home is reallyexpensive since prices of the food we are used to are high especially for fruits, vegetables (1 onionscosts around 2 euros) and dairy products. On the other hand, eating at university and restaurants ingeneral are extremely cheap so you do not to worry about it. Prices of taxis and other means oftransportation are quite low. I would suggest to visit other countries plane tickets for flights in Asia arenot too expensive and often Asian airlines make some promotions. This is a list of some helpful prices:

Life in South Korea is much different than in Europe.I loved my time there since the first second, but ifyou have a cultural shock in the beginning is morethan understandable. Koreans are really polite andshy but do not be surprised if they ask you a picturetogether or if they just stop you to tell you arebeautiful/handsome, and they might offer yousomething to drink or if you get a lucky an entiredinner (it happened to me and my friends). Mostprobably you are going to have lunch and dinneroutside everyday and this is something I really lovedbacause you are always out with your friends and you never need to cook which is one of thereasons why the time that you spend at home is minimal. Korean dishes are pretty similar andthere just isn’t that much variety, moreover food is usually extremely spicy but I think it is reallygood and you have the possibility to try some wired specialities like the alive octopus or the cow’sintestine. I would recommend Korean BBQ and Chimaek (chicken and beer), they are both quitecheap and really tasty.Within Seoul, there are lots of places to see, such as the palaces Gyeongbokgung, Changdeokgungand Changgyeonggung, the Seoul National Museum, the Han River, I visited the Lantern festivaland the firework exhibition. I think the firework exhibition is unmissable there are amazingfireworks for 2 hours and just the atmosphere is great. Another wonderful event is the weekendof Yonsei against Korea university. They compete in five different sports to determine who is thechampion for that year. Iwatched only the footballgame and even if we lost thevibe was amazing, I had a lot offun.Seoul really never sleeps mostof the restaurants and shopsare always open especially theconvenience stores (GS25, 7eleven) which are everywhereand they never close. Nightlifeis amazing the number of pubs, bars and clubs is incredible. The best party areas are Sinchon forpubs and Hongdae and Itaewon for clubs but the most famous club, Octagon, is in Gangnamwhich is the poshest area of Seoul. The price tickets for clubs goes from 0 to 20 depending on thenight, quite often there are some parties free for exchange students you just need to find them.I was usually going to the playground in Hongdae where all the exchange students meet and thenfrom there you can choose what to do. Moreover, In October there is a dance music festival called

Spectrum which costs around 100 euros for Koreans but for exchange students if you can findticket for 8 euros and it is for sure worth going.I would recommend to travel the most you cansince the studies are really simple and you aregoing to have a lot of free time. I went to Busanwhich is the second biggest city in Korea, HongKong, Macao and Vietnam. I enjoyed all of thesedestinations even tough they are really differentbut maybe Hong Kong might be the best one tovisit.To conclude, In Korea I had the best time of my life I loved the city, the people, the nightlife, theatmosphere and everything else, I hope for you that you are going to choose Yonsei as yourexchange destination sine I am sure you are going to love it as well.
