About Yonsei

Being the oldest private university in Korea, Yonsei University was first established in 1885 by Christian missionaries. Our mission is to educate leaders who will contribute to humanity in the spirit of "truth and freedom." The 300,000 Yonsei alumni who take this calling to heart can be found manifesting this proud spirit from leadership positions around the world.

Yonsei’s main campus is ensconced in a spacious, picturesque and natural setting located minutes away from the economic, political, and cultural centers of Seoul’s metropolitan downtown. Yonsei has over 5,000 eminent faculty members who are conducting cutting-edge research across all academic disciplines. There are 21 graduate school, 22 colleges and 120 research institute/centers hosting a selective pool of students from around the world.

Yonsei is proud of its history and reputation as a leading institution of higher education and research in Asia.

Founding Philosophy

“If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31-32) Based on this founding philosophy, Yonsei University seeks to cultivate leaders who embody the principles of truth and freedom.


Education at Yonsei is based on strong morals, ethics, and humanism. Yonseians are trained to criticize and evaluate themselves throughout their lives. They develop a sense of duty as leaders to help resolve regional and social problems through love and service. Yonseians are cultivated to become leaders with mutual understanding and respect, a spirit of cooperation, and the principles of love, service, and sacrifice.
