Difficulty in Online Course Registration

Each semester, both domestic and international students compete with each other to register for their courses of choice through the online course registration system. Please keep in mind that this process is very fast and some say it is similar to a lucky-draw. Therefore, students who fail to register for their courses should consult with the respective professor to get a seat.

Restricted Majors

Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, Pharmacy, Law, Music, MBA


Business Courses

Business courses are in high demand every semester, so, a maximum of three (3) classes on the subject per semester is allowed.


Course Level

Course Level can be checked by each course code. If a course's code number is level 1000, it means the course is classified as a General Education and/or Lower Level course. Level 2000 - 4000 courses are Major and/or Upper Level courses. Courses over 5000 are Graduate courses.


Course Load

Course load is limited to a minimum nine (9) credits for all incoming exchange/visiting students, while the maximum is eighteen (18) credits for undergraduate and fifteen (15) for graduate students. If a student takes the Korean Language course designed and offered for regular Korean Language Institute (http://www.yskli.com) students, the maximum course load is limited to twelve (12) credits and the six (6) credits for the Afternoon Korean Language course.

Korean Language Courses

From 2013 Spring Semester, Yonsei University will be offering only one Korean Language Institute (KLI) Course for incoming exchange and visiting students. Taking a Korean Language Course is optional. Please refer to the following new Korean Language Course Module for your plan of Korean Language Study.
If you are at the intermediate level in Korean, you can consider the Korean Language Course offered by Underwood International College (UIC). UIC offers a 3 credit Korean Language Course for its students as well as incoming exchange and visiting students every semester. So if you feel burdened to take a 6 credit KLI Korean Language Course, the UIC course may be another option.
