In addition to language courses, students enroll in Introduction to Korean Studies (during the fall semester) and other elective courses. Many courses are offered under the general headings of East Asian studies, international relations and international business. Students proficient in the Korean language may, with permission, take regular university courses at Yonsei.

Yonsei University sits on a large wooded campus in Sinchon, an area of Seoul that is popular with college students due to the many trendy restaurants, shops, and cafes.
