    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.

    What is a notarized translation?

    If the document is in a language tha tis not recognized by Korea, you will need to translate it 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 content. 


    Dormitory

    Regular course applicants cannot apply for dormitories, and you have to find your own accommodation.

    Daeheung Station | Things To Keep In Mind

    Compared to line 2, the intervals are longer so you have to plan your travels in advance.

    Line 6 has fewer users than other subway lines so the inside of the trains is emptier and you can probably grab a seat.

    After getting out of Exit 1, walk to the right for about 5 minutes to get to the back gate. The dormitory is located right next to the back gate.

    Sogang Station | Things To Keep In Mind

    Although the name of the station is Sogang Station, it's not the main station near Sogang University. We recommend using Line 2 or Line 6 because the intervals of Gyeongui Jungang Line are very long.

    It takes about 5 minutes to get to the main gate after getting out of Exit 1. The Arrupe building, where the language school is located, is a two-minute walk from the main gate.

    Train intervals: 10-15 Minutes

     University District and Neighborhood Information

    1. University District Information

    Sogang University's university district runs from Gyeongui Line Forest Road all the way to Sinchon Station.

    Sinchon, a very well-known downtown area of the university is bordered by Sogang University, Yonsei University, and Ewha Women's University. It is very large and well-developed.

    In Sinchon, there are large franchise restaurants, cafes, and bars that were frequently featured on TV, so Songang University students can make lots of after-school plans during the afternoon.

    For more information about Sinchon, click here.

    The Gyeongui Line Forest Road area along the main gate of Sogang University is a small university district that is mainly only known by Sogang University students. Unlike Sinchon, there are many restaurants and small cafes run by small business owners so they are generous and give lots of discounts to Songang University students.

    Restaurants such as 'Yellow Pizza' are located along the Gyeongui Line Forest path here which all Sogang University students have tried at least once.

    If you want to experience the drinking culture of Korean students, we highly recommend taking a trip to these spots!

    CGV and Megabox, Korea's leading movie theaters are located nearby.

    The movie theater closer to Sogang University is Sinchon CGV. It's not that big, but it's located near the campus and Sinchon Station (Line 2) so it's the perfect place to relax after a hard day of studying.

    Megabox Sinchon is located near Yonsei University and Sinchon Station so it's a little far from Sogang University.

    However, we recommend Megabox for people who prefer to go to the movies with a bigger screen since it's bigger than CGV.
