Prior to New Student Orientation which is open to all students, International Student Orientation caters specifically to newly-arrived international students to help you settle into your new home. This orientation provides important information about your visa, the Korean health insurance system, getting a work permit, and more. After a delicious lunch at a local Korean restaurant, we take a tour of Songdo to show you some local highlights and give you an introduction to the public transit system. ISO is a great opportunity to meet other international students and get to know Songdo.
A few weeks into the semester, Student Affairs staff will also arrange for all international students to travel to the immigration office together to apply for the Alien Registration Card, which is essential to maintaining legal status in Korea. Staff will set an appointment and arrange for transportation.
