As a UC Merced student, you could study at Yonsei University, spend significantly less money than in Merced, find great opportunities in research and travel, take your classes in English, and still get financial aid.
Here’s a quick list of the opportunities offered within Korea:
- International Summer School, Yonsei Univ.
- Yonsei Univ.

Korean language study: Take a course of Korean while studying at Yonsei University for the summer. You'll take Korean if you study at Yonsei for the semester or year.
Engineering: Unless you're in computer science engineering, you should plan to study for the semester to take engineering courses.
Natural Sciences: Math, physics and ESS students might want to look at going for at least a semester while biology and chemistry can find courses yearround.
SSHA: Find courses in art history, business & economics, history, political science, psychology, sociology yearround. Students looking for anthropology and literature coursework may want to look more closely at going for a semester or more.
