After selecting the university, then you'll need to apply for admission. The admission criteria and application process vary depending on your university selection.  Normally, you'll need to complete registration online then email all the documents needed to the PIC of your selected university. (*please ask the person-in-charge of the university for more details)

Next, you'll need to apply for a student visa. Those who applied for a short-term basis (3-months), a visa is not needed as Malaysians are given a 90-days entry permit to enter Korea without a visa. So be sure to plan your studies ahead and return to our homeland on time! For those who applied for a long-term (more than 3-months), a student visa is needed. If you enrolled in the language program, you'll need to apply for a D-4 visa. You can obtain the visa in 3 working days after your application submission. 

After all the hectic, you're ready to go! 
A summary of the admission process:
Online registration -> Submit required documents -> Receive admission email -> Complete the payment -> Receive the letter of admission -> Apply for Visa -> Obtain Visa -> Enter Korea -> Take Placement Test/ Attend Orientation -> Start Course -> Apply for Alien Registration Card in Korea -> Enjoy your study

No matter a short or long-term, the people you met and the experience you gained are more than worth. Hope all the information help you in applying your fun study trip in Korea :) We'll have next post soon about how to apply for Korea student visa in Malaysia :)
