Overview


Founded in 1948, Myongji University is a global campus of world-class education, cutting edge facilities, eco-friendly environment, and is where your future comes true!

The founding purpose and spirit of Myongji Institution is to educate capable individuals not only to contribute to national culture and economics but also to world peace and development of human culture, following Christian truth: believing God, being filial to parents, loving others as oneself, caring for and developing nature. 

Location

The largest and capital city of South Korea, Seoul is a business and cultural hub, where skyscrapers tower over Buddhist temples. Take it all in from the N Seoul Tower, built atop a peak in Namsan Park. The teahouses and shops of Insadong give you a taste of Korean flavor, which you can further experience with a visit to the grounds and museums of Gyeongbokgung. UNESCO World Heritage Site Changdeokgung Palace is a fine example of authentic ancient architecture.

Housing

Students will live in a residence hall and typically stay in a two-person room.  Each room is equipped with beds, closets, desks, shelves, a telephone, LAN system and refrigerators, along with separate bathrooms and showers. Also TV, microwaves and electric kettles are arranged in the lounge for simple snacks and breakfast. Various subsidiary facilities are also available including a laundry room, a seminar room and a convenience store.

Student Life

Myongji University offers numerous services and activities for students studying at their institution for the semester and/or year.  These programs include an orientation for a briefing and introduction into life at Myongji and Seoul, a Korean culture club field trip, and an international student outreach club where students can meet and work with Korean students.

In addition to these activities, students can explore the city of Seoul to view the historical architecture, eat traditional cuisine, experience an array of outdoor and evening markets, and even sip some tea at the many teahouses seoul has to offer.  You can even try (and should) scoffing down a piping-hot, crispy hotteok (pancakes with sweet or savoury fillings) - they are delicious!

Health and Safety

All students will travel abroad with GeoBlue international health insurance, which is purchased by the College. Students will receive an electronic and hard copy of their insurance card, and should a doctor's visit (commonly referred to as hospital visit abroad) be necessary, they should reach out to their on-site study abroad coordinator/resident director. Students will be required to contact GeoBlue prior to their appointment, unless of course in the case of an emergency, and should follow the procedures outlined here. 

Students are also encouraged to register themselves in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), a free service provided by the U.S. government to U.S. citizens traveling abroad. STEP allows Americans abroad to receive updates from the nearest embassy or consulate and allows the Department of State to better assist you in an emergency.
