[Bachelor Degree] Yonsei University - Underwood International College Scholarship 2021, South Korea


Underwood International College (UIC) is a highly selective, English-language, four-year liberal arts institution, which combines the intimate, elite learning environment of an American-style liberal arts college with the faculty and resources of Korea’s top private research university. UIC students choose from an extensive list of classes conducted entirely in English and taught by a distinguished group of international and Korean scholars. With a student body drawn from around the world, UIC focuses on ensuring that its outstanding students have the intellectual foundation to become exceptional leaders capable of changing the world for the better. 
 
The key to UIC is its distinctive organization. Rather than segregating professors into separate departments, divided across disciplinary lines, UIC encourages vibrant intellectual exchange by bringing scholars and students from different fields together into one program. The faculty of the Common Curriculum, which is composed of international scholars recruited from prestigious universities throughout the world, offers interdisciplinary courses designed to help students navigate the complex intellectual landscape of the modern world.
