Average Tuition

South Korea is unique in that it does not differentiate between local and foreign students. The costs are the same for both groups. You should expect to pay between $4,000 and $9,000 per year at a public university, while private universities will cost you between $6,000 and $15,000 per year, with degrees in the medical field being more expensive. Overseas students can apply for a variety of scholarships, the majority of which are provided by institutions.

Average Cost of Living

The cost of living in Korea is expensive and varies depending on where you live, with bigger cities like Seoul costing more than smaller cities and villages. You should budget between $800 and $1,300 a month for living expenses. This includes your apartment or dorm, meals, transportation costs, as well as study materials, and miscellaneous charges.
