Ewha Womans University

Ewha Womans University is the most visited university in Korea. It is the world’s largest educational female institute. If you’re shopping around Edae or Ewha Fashion Street, you shall make time to visit this school.

Ewha Womans University
The school was founded in 1886 by American Methodist Episcopal. I was really amazed with the buildings inside the school. I felt that I was in Hogwarts. Look at these amazing architecture!

Besides their awesome buildings, they also have clean and green landscapes. The whole environment is picturesque! I think I can make a postcard out of the pictures I took there. I wish I could study in that beautiful university!

  1. Hi Ms. Karla.
    tanong ko lang po. tapos ako ng bachelors degree, tatanggapin ba ako ng mga univ. dun? o kelangan ko pa magtake ng one year course bago nila ako irecognize as degree holder?

    Kasi degree holder ako pero pagdating sa singapore considered as diploma lang.
