Program Description:
Dongguk University Exchange

Program Overview:

Enjoy a semester in Seoul, South Korea! Dongguk University is a private, coeducational university. Home to 11 colleges, 60 undergraduate programs, a graduate school and a medical school, Dongguk has much to offer its more than 13,000 undergraduate students and 5,000 graduate students.  You can study Buddhism and Buddhist culture while, at the same time, be exposed to the latest innovations in technology and higher education. In order to globalize its campus, Dongguk recently designed an innovative program to increase the number of international students on campus and to send their students to study abroad.

Since this is an exchange program, students pay tuition/fees at UWRF but room and board at the host institution. Students also pay for airfare, passport, visa, and personal expenses.


The University is ideally located in Seoul, South Korea, the nation’s capital and largest city. The two most popular shopping areas are close to the campus, as well as a train line, which stops quite near the university's entrance. There is also a nearby area, which caters to students, with inexpensive meals and activities.


The languages of instruction are English and Korean (overall, around 30% of all courses are taught in English; the Business School provides about 70% of their lectures in English). The University offers 100+ courses taught in English, so programs can be structured to meet students’ language needs. If you would like to see a list of previous courses taught in English at Dongguk University, please contact the Global Connections office.

Students are responsible for purchasing/acquiring their own books for classes at Dongguk University.
