Study Abroad: South Korea Meets its 2015 Goal of Hosting 200,000 Foreign Students

According to recent data, the number of international students in South Korea reached an all-time high in 2022. 

Surprisingly, Vietnamese students improved, making up just under 23% of the total. An increase of about 6% from the previous year. 

Uzbekistan, which contributed slightly more than 5% of the total number of students, as well as Japan, which contributed 3.5%, are two other nations that significantly boosted the numbers.

Only Gacheon University in Seognam, which received 3,057 foreign students in 2022, is not located in Seoul and is among the top 10 universities with the most international students.
