The Program

hanyang logo
With over 25,000 students, Hanyang is one of the premier private universities in Korea.  Of these students, over 3,000 students are international students coming from over 42 different countries.

Hanyang is known not only for its core academic program but also for its Korean Language and Culture program.  If you are interested in a term that focuses only on Korean Language instruction, the Korean Language and Culture Program is for you.

Students who can't devote a whole term to learning Korean will also have the opportunity to take Korean Language as part of their course offerings.



Approximately 35% of Hanyang's courses are offered in English.   Drexel students may choose from any course in the Hanyang course catalog but should be aware of the language of instruction of their selected courses.  All students going to Hanyang may take Korean language courses either as part of the regular course offerings or as part of an intensive Korean language program.

Hanyang offers a variety of courses in English.  Students searching for course offerings should check Hanyang's webiste, searching the individual colleges for course offerings.  Please remember that course offerings can change, thus you should double check to make sure that the course is in fact being offered when you are planning on going to Korea.

Hanyang libraryProgram Calendar (Regular courses not Language & Culture)

Fall Semester (Hanyang's semester 2):  Early Sept ~ Mid-Dec.   Drexel students will have to arrive in Korea at the end of August, before the end of Drexel's summer term.  Students should plan on leaving their spring/summer co-op early.

Spring Semester  (Hanyang's semester 1): Early March ~ Mid- June.  Drexel students will have to arrive in Korea at the end of February, before the end of Drexel's winter term.  Students should plan on leaving their fall/winter co-op early.   Please double check the end date for the spring semester to make sure that you are back in time for Drexel's summer term.




The Korean Language & Culture program If you are interested in in spending a term focusing only on Korean language acquisition, this program is perfect for you! It follows a different academic calendar which, with a few adjustments, would work well for Drexel students. More information can be found here:

Program Calendar (Korean Language & Culture)

  • Fall:  Early September- Mid November Drexel students will have to arrive in Korea at the end of August, before the end of Drexel's summer term.  Students should plan on leaving their spring/summer co-op early.
  • Spring:  Mid- March- End May  Drexel students will have to arrive in Korea at the end of February, before the end of Drexel's winter term.  Students should plan on leaving their fall/winter co-op early.  



Hanyang University - Course Equivalents.xlsx Students will need to get equivalents approved by the appropriate department for each course they plan to take abroad. For example, if you want to take a history course abroad Drexel credit, its equivalent must be pre-approved by the History Department at Drexel.

Grading & Credits: Students are taught and graded by Korean faculty at Hanyang. Grades are noted as "CR/NCR" on their transcript and will NOT affect their GPA. In order to receive CR students must earn a "C" or above at the host institution. Drexel students should plan on taking 20 credits per semesters which is a full course load at Hanyang. They should make sure that the 20 credits are equal to between 12 and 20 Drexel credits. Thus you will be a full-time student at both Hanyang and Drexel.





The Experiencetraditional seoul

Seoul is the capital and largest city in South Korea. With a population of over 10 million, it is one of the world's largest cities. The Seoul National Capital Area, which includes the major port city of Incheon and most of Gyeonggi-do, has 24.5 million inhabitants, and is the world's second largest metropolitan area. Almost half of South Korea's population live in the Seoul National Capital Area, and nearly a quarter in Seoul itself, making it the country's foremost economic, political, and cultural center. Seoul is also home to a rapidly growing international population of over 250,000, reflecting its role as an important destination for immigrants to South Korea.

Housing options: Students will be living in residence halls during their stay in Korea.  Please note that many Korean dorms are single sex dorms-- thus there are male dorms and female dorms. Female dorms frequently have some restrictions as to when the residents may receive visitors. For Academic year 2013/2014, Hanyang is waiving the cost of housing for inbound exchange students!

Entry Visa:  All students are required to obtain a student visa in order to study in Korea. For more information, visit the Korean Embassy Website.
