Global Temple Conference

Ewha Womans University was established in 1886 as the first modern educational institute for Korean women. It is located in the historical center of the city, the capital of South Korea, a huge modern metropolis.

Ewha Womans University is situated in the exciting Shinchon area of Seoul, about 10 minutes by subway or bus from downtown Seoul. Ewha is located in a student-orientated area of the city with Yonsei, Sogang, Hongik, and Kyunggi Universities located nearby. The area near the front gate of Ewha contains one of the most densely-concentrated shopping districts in Korea, where students can check out the latest local fashions and Korean curios at wallet-friendly prices. Shinchon is a vibrant and energetic community with lots of options for students to experience the local culture. 

Often referred to as the "Land of the Morning Calm," Korea is located at a major crossroad of northeast Asia and is home to nearly 45 million people. Grounded in ancient Confucianism, yet one of the most digitally-connected countries in the world, Korea offers a dynamic cultural mix of long-standing tradition and modern innovation.

Korea's capital city, Seoul, is where this juxtaposition is felt most keenly. Dotted with towering skyscrapers and glitzy shopping malls, the city is also home to serene Buddhist temples and beautifully crafted gardens. Seoul's fast-paced and bustling lifestyle combined with Koreans' enthusiastic interest in western culture provide a unique enviroment for students interested in studying there.
