What YU offers to exchange students

LPP (Language Partner Program)
The international exchange student can have a part time job as an English teacher for our students. Any incoming exchange student with a command of English will lead two teams of Yeungnam University students to study for English conversational skills. A team will be composed of 5 students and the team will undertake 4 hours of English study in a week. After successful performance as a tutor, the international exchange student is entitled to receive a certain amount of monthly stipend (approximately US $400) for three months which covers the costs of room and board for one academic semester.
There are a number of student clubs at Yeungnam University. Those clubs cover lots of fields, from academic activities to sports. If the international students wish to join the clubs, we will recommend them to arrange appointments with the student clubs assisted by their buddy.
