    Document Notarization Guide

    What is document notarization? 

    It refers to the public recognition of the credibility of documents as they come and go between countries. Notarized documents will be effective as official documents in both countries A and B.

    If you wish to use documents issued in country A in country B, you should generally obtain 1) certification from the government agency in country A and 2) certification from the ambassador (consul) of country B in country A.

    As the number of Apostille members increases, the above general document notarization process is used only for document exchange with non-apostille members.

    The notarization process of documents and the department in charge of notarization may differ by country. Make sure to check the exact process with the information appropriate to your nationality

    What is Apostille?

    In order to facilitate the international use of official documents among the members of the Convention, instead of abolishing the consular verification process of foreign missions, the official document issuing country certifies the reliability of the documents. Therefore, in the case of documents certified by the issuing country between the member countries, the official document can be recognized in the other country (the country of use).

    Each country has a different government department in charge of issuing apostille. Please contact your local embassy to prepare for the detailed Apostille issuing agency and the issuance process.

    List of countries that have joined Apostille as of 2022/04

    What is a notarized translation?

    If the document is in a language that is not recognized by Korea, you will need to get it translated and get a notarization for the translation. 

    For students applying for Korean language schools in Korea, translation into Korean or English is the most appropriate, and generally, the two tasks are entrusted together to an administrator who is qualified for translation and notarization. 

    Translation notarization is a procedure to prove that the translated content is not different from the original document.

    After acceptance, students must directly apply for the dormitory.

     University District and Neighborhood Information

    1. University District Information

    (Source: ChosunBiz)

    Chamsali-gil, which is directly connected to Exit 3 and 4 of Anam Station is a downtown area where students of Korea University hang out. The downtown area of Korea University is relatively smaller than other places.

    However, there are many restaurants and bars so certainly don't lack anything for students to enjoy a bit of fun after school.

    2. Nearby Facilities and Neighborhood Information

    1) Daiso

    Address: 서울 성북구 고려대로24길 51
    51, Goryeodae-ro 24-gil, Seongbuk-gu, Seoul

    Hours: 10:00~22:00

    Daiso is a store that sells affordable daily necessities for about 1,000-3,000 won. 

    It's cheap but it is good quality so it is a store you'll be visiting often to pick up daily items!

    Unfortunately, there is no large mart near Korea University, so we recommend ordering food and groceries from online stores such as Markey Curly or E-mart mall.

    2) Other Nearby Universities: Sungshin Women's University, Yonsei University

    1) Sungshin Women's University

    Address: 서울 성북구 보문로34다길 2

    2, Bomun-ro 34da-gil, Seongbuk-gu, Seoul

    2) Yonsei University

    Address: 서울 서대문구 연세로50
    50, Yonsei-ro, Seodaemun-gu, Seoul

    Korea University is geographically located very close to Sungshin Women's University. Korea University students often hang out in downtown areas near Sungshin Women's University or near Hyehwa. 

    When we mention Korea University, we can't leave out Yonsei University! Although the two are located quite far from each other, they are rival schools. They often hold sports competitions and joint activities.

    Ko-Yeon-Jeon, an annual sports competition is a big festival that every Korea University student has been to at least once!
