About Yonsei University:

Yonsei University is a private research university in Seoul, South Korea. It is one of Korea's three SKY universities, considered the most prestigious in the country. The university was established in January 1957 through the union of Yonhi College and Severance Union Medical College. Yonsei operates its main campus in Seoul and offers graduate, postgraduate and doctoral programs in Korean and English. Yonhi College was one of the first modern colleges, founded as Chosun Christian College in March 1915. Severance has its roots in the first modern medical center in Korea, Gwanghyewon, founded in April, 1885. As a tribute, the name 'Yonsei' was derived from the first syllables of the names of its two parent institutions.
