Why Study in S.Korea

Deciding where to study is a tricky decision. It can seem overwhelming to pick one country when you have the whole world to explore. There may be countries you haven’t even considered yet. South Korea is one of the most diverse and interesting countries to study in as an international student.

Here are ten sophisticated reasons why it is worth at least considering studying in South Korea:

Cheap cost of living

Living in South Korea, on average, is very cheap. This includes the cost of accommodation, food and transportation. For example, a taxi ride costs roughly ₩1150 (US$1) per kilometer.

Excellent education institutions 

South Korea is renowned for its universities. The three largest world-recognized universities are Seoul National University, Korea University, and Yonsei University. The universities all have high postgraduate employment rates and excellent reputations. South Korea also boasts the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology and Sungkyunkwan University which are lesser known but equally impressive institutions.

Incredible food

Students’ top two priorities for food tend to be: a) cheap and b) convenient. It is a bonus if the cheap and convenient food is rather tasty too. Korean food ticks all three boxes. The culture in South Korea revolves heavily around food, with many social gatherings having food as the focal point.

Varied and thriving nightlife

the country has a vibrant nightlife, with a ‘work hard, play hard‘ attitude. Many clubs are themed which can provide an interesting night out and most stay open until the early hours of the morning.

Kind people

Korean students are incredibly welcoming to their international peers. They are often keen to share Korean culture with those unfamiliar with their country so you will learn all the best bits about living in the country from experts.

Opportunity for trave

South Korea is very well located. It is within close proximity to many Asian countries including China and Japan. With the cheap travel costs, it is relatively easy to travel to them.

Stunning scenery

If you’re looking for scenery, it doesn’t get much better than South Korea.

Perfect balance between traditional and modern

If you want a mix of old traditional buildings and modern complexes and amenities then South Korea is the place for you. The country sports tall glass skyscrapers and traditional temples. It is not uncommon to see the two side by side.


 Most universities in South Korea offer language lessons alongside their courses. The classes vary in levels of difficulty so you can go in as near bilingual or a complete beginner.

High standard of living

South Korea is Asia’s fourth-largest economy and one of the world’s leading financial centers. It has remained relatively unscathed during the recession and has rapid economic growth, making it a promising place to live, work and study.
