I want to study in South Korea at korea university or yonsei university. However I am planning to take a gap year so if I do attend I’ll be going in 2022. At the moment I am doing a BTEC level 3 in applied science and my question is do universities in Korea know about BTEC courses and will they accept students who do them. If not what should I doooo😳😳????

Have you looked at the universities' websites or contacted admissions to ask?

I’ve looked at both korea university and yonsei university however it is quite hard to navigate around the website despite some of it being in English. I haven’t contacted the admission although I may do that through email if there is an option to do so. I’m worried that they have no idea as to what a BTEC level 3 National extended diploma is which will ruin my chances of getting in

Email them for clarification. I don't know how they will interpret the qualification, but as both universities you've mentioned are part of the SKY universities, it might be pretty competitive.

It's worth emailing them, but I have to be honest, outside of the UK there's hardly anybody who even knows what a BTEC is

Yeaa apparently there’s a higher acceptance rate for international students since they want to attract more of them. But also what happens if they don’t accept it would I have to do a foundation year?

They do have high acceptance rates for international students. If they don’t accept btecs do you know if they allow students to do foundation years there before their actual degree?

I think that being a foreigner helps but, since it is a SKY university there will be a lot of competition

Do they advertise foundation degrees anywhere on their websites? If they don't mention it, then probably not.

Hey I've been having the same issue lately because I too want to enrol to a South korean University with a BTEC subject that I had taken amongst the other two A levels. Did you get accepted with the BTEC degree?

I have not applied yet but I will be applying in 2022. I think it should be fine their requirements are that you have finished school and have a certificate to prove it. People being home schooled are not accepted
