Study in South Korea!
Hanyang was the first engineering college in Korea, and the largest in the nation. Hanyang has about 37,000 students in 23 colleges and 16 graduate schools. It was ranked 171 in the 2017 QS World University Rankings (43 in Engineering), and 15 in 2013 in The Times Asia University Rankings International Outlook. There are about 6,000 international students on campus annually through degree programs, language programs, exchange programs and the summer school program. Hanyang University has many notable alumni especially in the manufacturing industry and the film industry.
Seoul, the capital of the Republic of Korea, is among the world’s largest cities, with a population of more than 10 million. The city is said to be built on eight mountains—four inner mountains that surround the old city, and four outer—so expect some steep slopes and spectacular views. Seoul may be large and the pace of life often frantic, but that doesn’t mean there’s no chance to relax—nothing gets in the way of the daily tea ceremony.
