Winter Abroad at Yonsei - Session 2 - up to 15 x $3,000 NCP grants available!

About the program:
Yonsei University offers a short term program at its Sinchon campus for international students who would like to enjoy the winter in Seoul. The winter program is composed of two separate 3-week sessions, with intensive morning coursework and unique afternoon Korean language and Taekwondo classes. On the weekend, students can enjoy Korean winter activities. It will be an excellent opportunity to study, meeting professors in an intimate setting, and to enjoy the companionship of students from all over the world.

Location profile:
Seoul is the capital and largest metropolis of the Republic of Korea (commonly known as South Korea). Seoul is the world's 16th largest city and forms the heart of the Seoul Capital Area, which includes the surrounding Incheon metropolis and Gyeonggi province. The Seoul Capital Area houses about half of the country's population of 51.44 million people with 678,102 international residents. Whatever you want, at any time of day or night, Seoul can provide. An early morning temple visit can lead to a palace tour followed by tea sipping in Bukchon and gallery-hopping in Samcheong-dong. Seoul is heaven for passionate foodies. Whether tucking into the snacks of commoners or the cuisine of kings, you just can’t lose. Public transport is brilliant, so there’s no excuse for not stretching your travel horizons beyond the city limits.
