Submitted application documents will be screened by the OIA (Submission does not automatically mean admission). Upon screening the application documents, the OIA will issue original certificates of admission for qualified students, and send the certificates to international coordinators of the home universities - sometime in end of June 2011, in the fastest means of delivery, such as DHL.
Upon obtaining your certificate of admission from your international officer, you must visit - at the earliest date possible - the nearest Korean embassy/consulate with the certificate of admission and other documents required by the embassy/consulate to obtain a student visa (a D-2-F visa, which is for foreign exchange students). The business registration number of Myongji University is 「XXX-XX-00297」. You might need this number to apply for a visa. Please note that when it comes to the issuance of visas, it is the embassy/consulate's decision and Myongji University cannot make any guarantees.
Foreign exchange students are required to purchase overseas health insurance before they arrive in South Korea. Be sure to check your insurance policies carefully for coverage in South Korea. Make sure that your insurance policies cover the entire period of your stay at Myongji University – from the moment you step on the plane leaving for South Korea to the moment you step back on the soil of your home country after the end of your study. While at this point the official arrival dates are not finalized yet, please make sure that your insurance period starts from 2 march 2012 (or earlier, if you arrive in South Korea earlier) and ends on the last date of February 2013 (if you will leave the country right after your final exams) or the last date of July (August) 2012 (if you will leave the country after spending some time personally in the country). In any case, please make sure that your insurance period is long enough, and there are no missing (uninsured) days. If extraordinary circumstances prevent you from buying overseas insurance before leaving your home country, you can purchase insurance after arriving at Myongji University –during the orientation. But this is highly unrecommended, as you will be uninsured from the moment you step on the plane leaving for South Korea to the moment you actually pay for insurance after arrival at Myongji University. During this short uninsured period, anything can happen, and if you get sick and treated at a hospital during this period, you will not be reimbursed for the money you pay for this treatment even if you buy insurance later. Of course, even if you purchased overseas insurance before leaving your home country, you may purchase additional insurance after your arrival at Myongji University – during the orientation.
|March 2 Friday, 2012 09:00 ~ 18:00|
|For Spring Semester 2012||Incheon International Airport|
Upon obtaining the visa, you must reserve a plane ticket to fly to South Korea. Due to the high prices of plane tickets and other reasons, you should purchase your ticket as early as possible. Yet it is not a good idea to purchase your plane ticket until you receive the finalized schedule (timetable) containing the official arrival dates designated by the OIA, and until you obtain a visa (as there is no 100% guarantee that your visa will be issued, although foreign exchange students are rarely denied visa.).
If you choose to live in the university dormitory, you must arrive at the airport between 09:00 am ~ 18:00 pm on the official arrival date designated by the OIA, to be picked up at the airport. You will be picked up at Incheon International Airport by Myongji International Outreach Club students(어우라미), and escorted to the dormitory for check-in. The official arrival (airport pickup) date designated by the OIA is the dorm check-in date set by the dorm (check-in is not allowed before and after these dates.). Of course, if you have friends or relatives living in South Korea, you can choose to arrive in the country before the official arrival date designated by the OIA. More details (the official arrival [airport pickup, dorm check-in] date etc.) will be sent to you later via e-mail.
If you choose to live off campus, you do not have to arrive at the airport on the dates designated by the OIA. Of course, if you need airport pickup, you may apply for it. As you will not live in the dorm, you may arrive in South Korea any time after you obtain a student visa. I suggest that you arrive in the country as early as you can, so that you have more time to look for housing off campus. You need to arrive in the country in time to attend the mandatory orientation for new foreign exchange students.
