About the Program

HUFS is composed of two campuses, the Seoul campus located in the eastern region of the nation's capital city, and its suburban campus in Yong-in, which is about an hour and a half drive from the Seoul campus. Founded as Korea’s only institution of higher education focusing in foreign languages, HUFS produced a first class of 133 graduates in 1958 and began to broaden the reach of Korea toward the world. In 1978, HUFS became the largest college in Korea with four divisions and 28 departments and recruited 1,005 new students each year.
