Yonsei University (연세대학교) is a private research university located in Seoul, South Korea. As one of Korea’s three “SKY” universities, Yonsei was established in 1885 and is one of the oldest universities in South Korea. Yonsei’s admissions are extremely competitive. In 2012, Yonsei University was ranked 112th overall, 81st in Arts and Humanities, 12th in Modern Languages and 69th in Management and Social Sciences in the world by QS World University Rankings. And this year’s YISS (Yonsei International Summer School) Admission is open. Take a look at a message from the Vice President for International Affairs :
The Yonsei International Summer School (YISS) opened its doors in 1985 and since then, YISS has become an integral part of campus life based on a unique blend of Korean and global cultures. YISS continues to grow and evolve, accommodating the needs of a rapidly changing student body and meeting the challenges of a fast-paced global society.
The 2015 program has been revamped in order to highlight growing interest in the arts, culture, and humanities while also offering cutting-edge classes in management and economics, global issues, history and social sciences, and science and technology.
This summer, we invite you to experience the legendary “Yonsei Spirit” and to join us for an unforgettable summer in the heart of Seoul. You will make life-long friends, build new networks, expand and deepen your academic and cultural horizons, and experience life in one of Asia’s coolest, yet largely undiscovered metropolises of 10 million.
Make Yonsei your summer home in 2015 and have the best summer of your undergraduate journey.
Jongryn Mo, Ph. D.
