Application for International Admissions

Things You Should Know Before You Apply

1. Eligibility

  • Applicants with both Korean and other foreign citizenship are not eligible for International Admissions Ⅰ.
  • International Admissions Ⅱ applicants are advised to note that SNU does not acknowledge international schools located in Korea as foreign schools.

2. Application Process

  • Applicants should make sure they type in the correct personal information, when undertaking the online application process. In principle, any modification and/or cancellation is not allowed after completing the application.
  • Applicants are fully responsible for any disadvantages they may incur due to errors and omissions in the information provided.
  • Applicants are not allowed to utilize a cross application approach, which can lead to disqualification. Cross-application is defined as when an applicant is given more than one registration number after submitting multiple applications. Submission of multiple applications means either applying more than one undergraduate course, or applying both undergraduate and graduate course at once.
  • Online application website is optimized only in Internet Explorer. Connection through other browsers may occur errors.

3. Submission of Documents

  • All of the submitted documents cannot be returned and in most cases, the application fee is not refundable. However, exceptions may be made in such circumstances as those caused by the university’s fault, natural disasters, etc. In such cases, an internal review process will take place to determine the refundable amount.
  • Admissions offered will be rescinded if false information or unfair practice for admissions played any part in the process. This applies even after a student enrolls at SNU.

4. Others

  • Admitted students to SNU are not allowed to register for any other universities in Korea which are scheduled to hold the same academic year for admissions as that of SNU. If an admitted student does not comply with this regulation, the admissions will be rescinded.
  • International Admissions Ⅱ applicants are subject to the regulation limiting the number of applications to be made in the same academic year. This is in accordance with the new regulation introduced, which restricts the number of applications to six.
  • SNU does not disclose information related to admissions decisions.
  • The admissions staff reserves the right to require additional documents from applicants, should there be any need to clarify the eligibility or to verify the authenticity of the submitted materials.
  • For any applicant who has undertaken his/her entire education outside of Korea (International Admissions ∐) and has been offered admission for Spring semester in Korea cannot apply for the upcoming Fall semester admission at other universities in Korea including SNU. This restriction applies even if the applicant does not undertake the actual registration process. The offer itself is regarded as a valid precondition for this restriction to come into effect.
