  • College of liberal arts, University of split, please note. College of liberal arts, West Wing building is very nice. Campus tours are coming up a lot even for a walk. Crimson store, souvenirs.

  • University of-a-kind feel. Looking from the front of the school at a glance is a lot to come so near to restaurants and even at the beginning a lot of purpose

  • Although there are several universities in Korea among the most clean and typical University campus atmosphere in the University. Well, I can feel the change of season on-campus atmosphere was great.

  • 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 ..... ^^
  • The infrastructure is good as well as the teaching facilities. The place is also beautiful with a lot of activities throughout the year. However the discouraging thing is the communication in English. I hope it improve over the time.
  • 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 beautiful university. Spacious and well maintained. A bit of hills to go thru the campus buildings but no big deal.
  • Highly recommend to study in Korean Language program here. I have an amazing experience even though it was only the half of a year.

Where to stay in Seoul

The Seoul metropolitan area has two districts especially appealing to backpackers--Jongno just northeast of the city, and Hongdae to the west. Both offer good shopping and dining, as well as easy transport links to the rest of the city. Mid-range options may prove difficult to find in peak season (July to August), unless you don't mind staying at a traditional hanok guesthouse, where loads of character make up for any lack of amenities. Finally, a range of top-end hotels with an impressive list of services and facilities lie scattered around the city.
