It is the student’s responsibility to be issued the correct type of Visa in advance at the Korean Embassy or Consulate Office. Nationals of countries or regions where Korea has signed a Visa waiver agreement may enter Korea without a Visa. However, students from countries which are excluded from the Visa waiver agreement program must apply for a short-term study visa (D-2-8) on their own. Obtaining a Visa may be time-consuming and therefore we encourage students to start preparing for it as early as possible. Visa application must be proceeded in the country where student’s home university is located.

Required documents:

  • Certificate of Admission: will be sent to the address indicated on the online application form.
  • Certificate of Business Registration: will be sent by email upon request.


Medical facilities and insurance

International Summer School students are required to submit proof of insurance for the period of their stay in Korea. Those who do not submit proof of insurance are required to purchase insurance through a designated agency that Hanyang University will recommend upon the student’s arrival in Korea. In case of emergency, students can go to the Hanyang University Medical Center for care or treatment. General assistance is always available at the Office of International Cooperation.
