Since the language used for instruction at SNU is Korean, foreign students who intend to pursue an educational program are required to have a sound command of Korean language. Therefore, with exceptions to those who have demonstrated their proficiency in Korean, foreign students are urged to make efforts to achieve an adequate command of the language. The SNU graduate program provides two Korean courses, Korean Language and Culture 1 and 2, for international graduate students. Students who have scored "S" in these courses are considered qualified in the Korean language, and they are exempt from a qualifying examination for the Korean language. Also, the Language Education Institute provides an intensive Korean language program for students.
The major objectives of the Language Education Institute are language instruction, foreign language proficiency assessment and linguistics and language learning research. It offers Korean language programs for international students who wish to study Korean intensively. The Institute has been designated by the government as an official center to assess foreign language proficiency. In addition, the Institute is equipped with facilities that can receive satellite-broadcasts from around the world.

Since then, over 13,000 students from more than 70 countries have graduated from the KLCP, and the program has grown to annually enroll about 1,700 students. Many graduates go on to serve the public and private sectors by engaging in work related to Korea or the Korean language.
