What YU offers to exchange students
The Office of International Cooperation offers a pick-up service for all exchange students from other countries in a certain period of time. Incoming exchange students should submit a written notification at least two (2) weeks prior to arrival. The service is available between Yeungnam University and three destinations which are Daegu Airport, Dong Daegu Station and Dong Daegu Bus Terminal.
Orientation is the perfect way for new exchange students to get YU experience off to a great start. Specific information on orientation will be noticed after arrival at the campus.
Exchange students will be enjoying unique Korean cultures which they have never experienced.
We give newly-incoming exchange students a chance to participate in field trips to attractions in Korea. We offer this program once a semester free of charge.
Yeungnam University students will gladly be buddies for exchange students. They will assist exchange students to make a better adjustment in a university life.
LPP (Language Partner Program)
The international exchange student can have a part-time job as a Language teacher for our students. Any incoming exchange student with a command of English or other languages will lead two teams of Yeungnam University students to study for English conversational skills. A team will be composed of 5 students and the team will undertake around 4-8 hours of Language study in a week. After successful performance as a tutor, the international exchange student is entitled to receive a certain amount of monthly stipend (KRW 300,000) for three months.
There are a number of student clubs at Yeungnam University. Those clubs cover lots of fields, from academic activities to sports. If the international students wish to join the clubs, we will recommend them to arrange appointments with the student clubs assisted by their buddy.
