Next Steps for Admitted Studentsdd



Congratulations on your admission to Hankuk University of Foreign Studies!


We are looking forward to welcoming you  to campus. As an admitted student, there are several steps you need to complete to prepare for registration and enrollment at HUFS. 




Obtain a D-2 Visa / Change your D-4 Visa to a D-2


We will promptly issue a certificate of admission to all international students who need to apply for their student (D-2) visas . If students are residing outside of Korea, they need to contact the closest embassy or consulate general of the Republic of Korea. Students studying in Korea while carrying a D-4 (Korean Language) visa, must change their D-4 visas to D-2 visas before ther undergraduate program officially starts.

Submit Apostille Certificates for final transcript or Diploma 


Apostille or Embassy Certificates for diplomas and high school/college/university academic transcripts are required of all international students who have successfully gained admission to HUFS. They must be submitted to HUFS before the day of enrollment as we must have these official documents on file to confirm admission statuses.


The offer of admission will be rescinded for international students who do not submit their official diplomas or transcripts verifying high school graduation before the deadline.

Submit a Certificate of Insurance


We encourage all international students to maintain adequate health insurance coverage and they are required to enroll in our university's insurance plan according to our university's regulation. 


Students may request an insurance waiver if they are covered by Korean National Health Insurance or an alternative insurance policy. A waiver will be granted and the insurance charge will be removed if their private insurance holder can meet the basic requirements of the HUFS Insurance plan and/or if a certificate of Korean National Health Insurance is submitted during the welcoming orientation. Please note that travel insurance is not accepted for waivers.
