During the 4 years of the undergraduate program, students will attend courses conducted in English by UIC’s international faculty. The low student-to-faculty ratio offers UIC students the opportunity to closely interact with professors to enhance their intellectual growth on an individual basis. Throughout their studies, UIC students can seek advice from the professors and the academic advisors. They will also have the opportunity to study with world-renowned specialists through the Shinhan Distinguished Faculty lectures, and take any classes offered to the wider Yonsei community.
“What sets UIC apart is the small, discussion-based classrooms.
Students are not only able to build lasting relationships with peers and faculty members,
but also create meaningful, thought-provoking conversations in class.”
- Karen Wang, 17 Culture and Design Management -
“The signature 'Core' at the heart of the Yonsei Underwood International College
brings a very human, practical, and innovative touch to the education experience.
It is evidence of UIC's commitment to educating the whole person, nurturing young, empathetic talent
that is capable of innovating complex solutions for the betterment of humankind.”
- Orein Fracis Jafter, 18 Nano Science and Engineering -
“Compared to major European universities, where an atmosphere of anonymity reigns,
classes are very small and the instructors know all their students by name.”
- Soeren Maerki, 09 Economics -
“The quality of education, mentorship, and the plethora of opportunities at UIC fundamentally shaped
who I am. Small group classes focused on debate and discussions honed my ability to think critically,
analytically and logically - which became a critical asset as I started work.”
- Suh-Yeon Christine Hong, 06 International Studies -
