Korea University

Korea Winter          
The capital city of Seoul is located in the northwest corner of South Korea.  It is a bustling metropolis of 13 million people and a center of culture, finance, politics, and entertainment. The combination of centuries of history and a cutting-edge IT industry provides Seoul with an interesting contrast of old and new influences.

Korea University
Founded in 1905, Korea University (KU) is considered to be one of the best private institutions of higher education in Asia with a strong emphasis on excellence in teaching and research and serving Korean society. The university is centrally located in the hilly Anam-dong section of Seoul with an attractive parkland campus. KU is a multicultural institution with more than 5,000 international students contributing to an overall student population of about 28,500. Subways and microbuses provide easy transportation from the campus to all parts of the city.
