Seoul has been a capital city since 1394, when it was named the capital of the Cho-son Dynasty. The city is ideally located between mountains and along the Han-gang River, and is home to one quarter of the nation’s population. A short distance from Seoul, which is connected by a subway train, Suwon is the provincial capital of Gyeonggi-do and the only remaining completely walled city in South Korea. 

Founded in 1949, Kyung Hee University is one of the top universities in South Korea and is well-known in fields such as economics, international business, international area studies and hospitality management, among others. Students may choose to study at either the Seoul Campus or the Global Campus in Suwon.
