From The Dean

A Warm Welcome to the Underwood International College!

Drawing upon 136 years of rich Yonsei University tradition, the Underwood International College was established in 2005 as Korea’s first dedicated international college, welcoming its first class in 2006. Our curriculum is modeled after North American liberal arts institutions, and we are committed to fostering the values of the humanities in tandem with developing innovative, trans-disciplinary major programs.

Your college experience at Underwood will be transformative, exciting, and rewarding. The residential college program for incoming freshmen will provide you a “soft-landing” into an intimate communal college life.  Our vibrant campus culture based in the heart of Seoul will inspire you, motivate you, and enrich you. I invite you to join our talented and diverse student body drawn from more than 70 countries.  Engage and explore the ample opportunities UIC has to offer, and let us help you discover your passion!
