Hanyang University, ERICA, South Korea  would like to inform you that the registration for semester exchange application for Spring semester 2023 (Intake March – June 2023) is already opened.  The tuition fee for this program is NOT waived. AND the accepted students are responsible for their learning materials, dorms, independent quiarantine, visa fees and living expenses in Korea including Roundtrip Flight Ticket & Insurance.

This program is open for ITS students Bachelor level (D4/S1) batch  2020, 2021.

Hanyang University ERICA offer around 500~600 courses in English (Major: 70%, Elective: 30%) per year over various departments. Exchange students are allowed to take courses from different departments upon availability. The most up-to-date course list becomes available a month prior to the beginning of semester. Until then, students should refer to the previous year’s course list. (e.g. 2023 Spring semester applicant should refer to 2022 Spring semester course list). But note course list may differ every year. The previous English-taught course list (   & Available Courses for Spring 2023) can be found as linked.
*Hanyang University ERICA accept graduate students, but they are highly required to take undergraduate level (3rd – 4 th year) courses, and the number of graduate courses to take can be highly limited.

Course registration system in Hanyang University works on “first-come, first-served” basis. Students must be aware that it may be very difficult to register for some courses and their preferred choices of courses are NOT GUARANTEED. We ask exchange students to be flexible with their course preferences. If students have any essential courses required for graduation, we suggest them to take it at their home university.

Credits and Study Load
1 HYU credit consists of 15 contact hours. (In most cases the conversion to ECTS is “1 Hanyang credit equals 2 ECTS”.) Regular student’s study load at Hanyang is 15~18 credits per semester while maximum credits are 20. Exchange students should take at least one regular course to maintain their visa.

Course Registration
Before coming to Korea, students will have a chance to register courses online. There are different phases for course registration categorized by their major & year and it works on “first-come, first-served” basis. The specific dates will be sent to students directly through email and uploaded to our website: Academic Calendar (as of 2022)

Students can apply for on-campus dormitory and the application will be done separately approximately two (2) months before the semester begins. Housing information can be found from website (available only in Korean). On-campus dormitory will NOT be guaranteed if students do NOT complete housing application or housing fee payment within deadline.
Buddy Program
Buddies are current Hanyang students who volunteer to support new students for their smooth settlement and adjustment into the life and culture in Korea. Representing Korea as a cultural delegation, buddies will interact with new exchange/visiting students throughout the semester and provide them assistance in various areas.
* Application instructions will be shared before the semester starts.

Cost of Living (estimate)
Dorm: 300,000 KRW; Off-campus: Above 450,000 KRW
Food: 400,000 KRW
Personal Expenses: 250,000 KRW
Total (per month): 950,000~1,100,000 KRW

National Health Insurance
The Korean government is mandating all long-term sojourn foreigners to be registered for the National Health Insurance (NHI) since March 2021. Exchange students will be subject to the registration after applying for the Foreign Registration Card. The monthly amount of the NHI will be approximately 66,000 KRW from March 2023. Please note that the individual health insurance will be still required, as the NHI will not be valid until the foreign registration card is issued, and it may not cover some unexpected matters related to international students, such
as hospitalization and etc. Note those eligible for NHI Registration Exemption can apply for exemption on their own, and further information will be shared later.
