  • As a domestic at the prestigious campus of grandeur. A recipe for every building and every trait, and it was felt pretty.

  • 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

  • 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 that English is not spoken by staff and you will have hard time to get things done. 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
  • A beautiful university. Spacious and well maintained. A bit of hills to go thru the campus buildings but no big deal.
