  • Upon receiving the acceptance package, students must personally contact the nearest Korean embassy or consulate general promptly for their student visa

  • Students will be informed of a designated arrival day when airport pickup services are provided. It is highly recommended that students arrive on this day to seamlessly follow the planned school schedule.
  • Early entry to Korea is permissible if the visa allows, and students must leave within 2 weeks after the semester concludes.
Health Insurance
  • Exchange/visiting students must have health insurance covering their stay in Korea.
  • Students need to purchase health insurance in their home country and submit the certificate before coming to Korea.
  • The insurance policy should cover sickness, accidents, and death. Students should also familiarize themselves with how the health insurance works in case of any medical issues.
  • Additionally, students must subscribe to the Korean national health insurance service; however, exemptions are available for those whose purchased private insurance meets specific requirements.
Tuberculosis Test
  • As per Korean Immigration Service requirements, students living on campus must submit proof of an authorized tuberculosis test (via x-ray, skin, or blood) taken within 45 days before arriving in Korea.
