Yes, a virtual account given to each student is a unique account number which is intended only for each of them. All payments that are received on that account will be counted as your payment regardless of the remitter’s name. All students receive their own account number as can be seen on the application page, so, therefore, do not share your number with any other students.
No, payment for the program/accommodation fee is allowed only by wire transfer.
Students will receive either a Welcome Letter or an Incomplete Application Notification through email after submitting the applications. Once they make their payment properly before the payment deadline, they will be receiving the Letter of Admission and Hanyang student ID which will be used to register for the courses.
In general, exchange student agreements between universities are only offered for spring/fall sessions. However, with some active partner universities, Hanyang University may have exchange agreements with a clause that includes the international winter school. Please inquire and apply through your home university, or you will need to apply and register for HIWS on an individual basis.
You are eligible for Hanyang International Winter School if you are one of these: Currently enrolled in an undergraduate program Hold a bachelor’s degree from an undergraduate program Have received acceptance for and will be attending an undergraduate program in Fall
At present, there is no minimum GPA requirement. All courses with the exception of the Korean Language Course are conducted in English. Therefore, there is no need to have any previous knowledge of the Korean language in order to attend HISS/HIWS. However, in order to be able to follow courses, a certain level of English proficiency will be necessary.
No, students may receive an email of Incomplete Application Notification when passport renewal is required. Before being proceeded to the next step, students should upload their renewed passport before the deadline. Failure to submit the document after that time will result in termination of participation/enrollment in HIWS.
All currency is accepted, however, it is applicant’s responsibility to pay the exact amount based on the daily exchange rate. (Only deficit or surplus bigger than 50,000 KRW from total fees will be respectively charged or refunded to students upon arrival at Hanyang.)
HISS team is reviewing the application every day, so students will be notified via email within 2 business days of the submission. If your payment is well received on our side and received a letter of admission, you will be fully admitted to the program.
