Student Reviews

Not what I expected, as an international student
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

The hardest part of studying at this university was the number of classes international students could take. Most of the classes were taught in Korean or the same classes were taught every semester, so it was hard to take classes in my major.

Kyunghee University, one of the best in South Korea!
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I experienced a lot with good professors and nice curriculum. I had a good grade and often took scholarship from school. Student club activities in school were also fun. I'm happy with my university.

I’m a freshmen. I have no experience because of Covid19
