Study in Korea B


2nd part of study in Korea, fall semester 2022-2023. More information on visa requirements, placements, course selection, as well as assessment and grading, will be provided in a special introductory meeting in September 2022.

Students will spend a year in South Korea at one of Leiden’s partner universities. The precise destination of each student will be determined early in the first semester, taking into consideration their research interests, the profile of each university and the availability of full-year spots at the partner universities. At present, Leiden’s partner universities in South Korea include: HUFS, Sookmyung Women’s University, SKKU, Yonsei University, Seoul National University and Korea University.

It is the responsibility of the student to maintain contact with his/her Leiden supervisor throughout their stay in Korea. Furthermore, all students are required to earn 30 ECTS in Korea by following Korean language courses OR content courses conducted in the Korean language. This translates into approximately 12 credits in the Korean system of grade registration. Students should consult which courses they intend to follow during their stay in Korea with their supervisor and the Examinations Committee before they leave for Korea.
