  • This very beautiful University buildings and magnificent. The University's architecture such as the architecture of the buildings that existed in Europe or America. Around campus, many once there is a cafe, a bookstore, and a restaurant. The location is very strategic because it is close to the MRT exit Anam Station

  • I came here last year as an exchange student. The very first impression of Korea University was so good indeed the campus was so beautiful (specially gardens were most memorable). Also the students here are so friendly and kind even though I haven't studied other countries except for here but anyhow everything is just perfect so far. As for living cost near the university is so cheap. I think this area is the cheappest in Seoul but there are so many places to hang out, not to mention about 24 hours convenient stores, bars and cafes.
  • I worked here from 2014 to 2017. Its a beautiful place with excellent maintenance and security. The infrastructure is good as well as the teaching facilities. There are lot of activities throughout the year. They have a bank as well as many convenience stores. They have all major coffe shop here. However the discouraging thing is that English is not spoken by staff and you will have hard time to get things done. Most of the locals, they tey to avoid foreigners but there are people who will help you a lot. I hope it will improve over the time. Even some faculties do not like if they see foreigners in their lecture because they will have to communicate in English.
  • I loved everything ..... ^^ ..... The place is great for anyone who is looking for a different place, cool, nice, and with great conditions of studies .... with qualified professionals, specialized in Everything ..... And also I've been researching a lot about Korean universities .... and in my opinion Korea University (KU) and one of the best Korean universities ... it's necessarily not just me who think that .... but several other people ..... ^^
  • I did a Korean languages program here and it was awesome! Be prepared to walk ALOT though. There are so many hills and stairs.
  • A very beautiful university campus and a very good university
