Mason Korea International Services provides guidance to students studying and working at George Mason University in immigration, assists with adjustment issues, and fosters cross-cultural understanding through programs highlighting global themes.

 

Visa and Immigration Processes

We advise non-immigrant students on a range of issues vital to Mason Korea’s international community. We work to provide resources to assist with cultural adjustment and regulatory compliance and assist international students with handling key visa and immigration processes. 

 

International Programs

We provide educational, cultural, and social programs in Korea that could inspire cross-cultural understanding and enrich the Mason experience by emphasizing global issues and themes and providing meaningful opportunities for shared learning. We also recognize individual achievements and milestones and celebrate the richness of our community, its holidays, festivals, and traditions.

 

Diverse Student Community

Mason Korea is growing into a home of a diverse international student community of students with multicultural backgrounds. International student enrollment is important as it does not only bring diversity to the university community but also takes a considerable part in Mason Korea student enrollment. For the past years, international students take 8 – 16 % of total student enrollments in Mason Korea.
