There is no information about graduate student admissions. I’ve researched Google and the Kyungsung University website, but there was no information about graduate admissions. So, if you want to know about the graduate school, you can either contact the international student office or apply to other Korean universities. Also, for undergraduate students, there is no admissions page on the institution website, but the website took me to the Study in Korea website, which is a government-run website. So, if you want to apply, visit Study in Korea.
I’ve mentioned before that there was no information about graduate students. However, for undergraduate students, the tuition fee is around $7,000 per year. As with all Korean universities, these fees can change according to student’s major. For more information, visit the Study in Korea link above.
