Since its establishment in 1885, Yonsei University has been at the forefront of higher education. The "Yonsei Legacy" is a unique and powerful one. It blends tradition with the vision of maintaining its stature as one of the most modern, forward-looking, and liberal universities in Asia.
Today, Yonsei is recognized by the global community as one of the most innovative and globalized universities.
Founded on Christian values, Yonsei has played a unique role among Korean universities as a gateway for scholars and students interested in Korean and Asian studies, language and culture. Also, as Korea's window to the world, Yonsei for over a century has served as a principal conduit of knowledge flowing in and out of Korea. Such a role has propelled Yonsei's growth and will allow it to assume an even greater role in the 21st century. I firmly believe that Yonsei University's place as a leading university in the world depends on the level of its globalization. In this respect, the Office of International Affairs will continue to play a vital role in facilitating Yonsei's global push.
The numbers speak for themselves. Yonsei today has the most extensive overseas exchange network in Korea, with exchange agreements with over 650 universities worldwide.
