  1. Hey, thanks for your post. It helps me a lot ^^ I read that you are one of KGSP scholars. Maybe you can help me?

    So, I'm interested in applying master study in Yonsei GIS, but I get confused with requirement no.1 "Completed application form (print out the submitted online application)".

    What is this supposed to mean? I know KGSP has their own attachment of application form for applying via designated university, but Yonsei also has their own application form which is should be submitted online first.

    These two are different, and I'm afraid of making unnecessary mistake. Do you have a word about this?

    Thank you ^^

    1. Hi I'm really sorry for replying late. As far as I know you'll have to fill out both application forms. The KGSP form is for scholarship while the Yonsei thing is for the institution. Depending on the college you're applying they may have different application forms for it. Anyway, if you have more inquiries I think it's better to direct it to Yonsei's OIC.
