About

A YFU exchange program is the learning adventure of a lifetime. YFU is a homestay experience where you will live with a carefully selected host family who has agreed to open their home and their hearts to you providing room, board, and a caring home. You'll gain a global family, make new friends, and attend a new school. Have a journey you could have never imagined at home, and you'll discover that the YFU experience is a powerful engine for personal growth.

Koreans highly value education, taking between 11 and 15 subjects per semester varying from liberal arts to science. After school, you may be able to join new friends as they watch movies in the DVD-bang (DVD or video room), sing karaoke at the noraebang (singing room) or play video games in the PC-bang (computer room). Private specialized academies for personal interests like dancing, drawing, or physical fitness are are also popular in South Korea. During weekends, many riversides are occupied with picnickers and the mountains are filled with hikers.

If you’d like to experience life on the other side of the world, then South Korea is a great fit for you!
