South Korea: Yonsei University

Since its founding in 1885, Yonsei University has been synonymous with international education and exchange in Asia. As the most internationalized and open institution of higher learning in Korea, Yonsei by far enjoys the longest history of international education in Korea with the most extensive network of exchange partners world-wide. Yonsei University currently ranked as the top private university in Korea in the 2009 QS World University Rankings published by The Times Higher Education Supplement and in The 2009 Academic Ranking of World Universities by Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Even more, Yonsei University is actively strengthening its international status as a competitive research university by launching the “Global 5-5-10” program in 2007. The main goal of the program is to achieve global top 10 ranking in at least five of the 12 selected fields (which are Korean studies, Chemistry, Astronomy, Biomedical Science, Material Science, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Metabolism Disorders, Nanomedical Research, Aging Studies, and Medical Engineering) within the next five years.
