About Ewha Womans University

Ewha Womans University is a private university in central Seoul, South Korea. It is one of the city's largest institutions of higher learning and considered to be the top women's university in Asia. Ewha alumnae include Korea's first female doctor, the first female justice on the Constitutional Court, Jeon Hyo-sook, and the first female prime minister, Han Myeong-sook.

Seoul (pop. 10 million) is the capital and largest city of South Korea. Located on the Han River in the center of the Korean Peninsula, Seoul has been a major settlement for over 2,000 years, with its history dating back to 18 BCE. Seoul’s influence in business and finance, international trade, politics, technology, education and entertainment all contribute to its role as a leading global city. It is one of the world's top ten commercial centers and home to large conglomerates, such as Samsung, LG and Hyundai-Kia.

Courses & Credit:
Five courses, 15-16 semester hours, earn 4.0 Wheaton credits. Intensive Korean Language course is combined with courses taught in English. 

Housing & Board: 
On-campus housing is available at the International House, offering single and double rooms. Students are required to pay a housing application fee of $60.00 as soon as possible to reserve their room. There are nine student cafeterias on campus, as well as many area eateries. Students pay for their own meals.

Budget Information:
Students studying abroad will continue to pay Wheaton tuition. Students are not charged Wheaton room, board, technology, laundry, or student activities fees while on a study abroad program. Wheaton will, in turn, pay the program for all tuition and academic fees and international health insurance. Students will pay housing directly to Ewha and will book and pay for their own flights.

Fees billed by Wheaton will be charged to students on their regular Wheaton College student account during regular billing cycles (July/December). 

Federal, state, Wheaton need-based and merit scholarships will be applied to these charges for Wheaton-approved programs. Students must consult with the Office of Student Financial Services (SFS) for a comprehensive review of their aid. If a student receives aid beyond the cost of Wheaton tuition, they can request a refund through SFS. This can in turn be used to pay Ewha for room and board charges.

Please do your research as housing and meal costs vary greatly from program to program. This Budget Worksheet can help you estimate the total costs of your program. Refer to the Ewha website for an overview of all additional expenses, which may include visas, international cell phones, and discretionary expenses.
