  • Then have these documents authenticated by the authority that issued them, such as the Ministry of Education
  • Then have the previously translated papers authenticated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in your country
  • It is also best to have the papers authenticated by an embassy in your country as well, if you only find one. There are some countries that do not have any embassies... Therefore, you will not be asked to attest your certificates.
  • Here your application file is complete, send it to the university address which you will find in the header of the admission application that you received via email.

Here you must take some steps to obtain a study visa in South Korea by registering a separate application at the South Korean embassy in your country. The steps are as follows:

  • Contact the embassy either through their website or by phone.
  • Request an appointment to submit a study visa application.
  • Prepare the required visa papers and documents
