Accreditation and Recognition:
- Scholarships will be awarded within the budget range of KU

However, we strongly recommend you to at least pay for the Mutual Health Aid Association fee, one of the optional fees, since having insurance during the entire study period in Korea has been made mandatory for all international students by the Ministry of Education.
