Ewha Womans University


Ewha Woman's University is a private institute for women in Seoul. Mary F. Scranton created this institute in 1886 under the emperor Gojong. It was the first university established in South Korea. Presently, it is the largest female educational institution in the world and one of the most prestigious institutions in South Korea.

The root of Ewha Womans University is traced back to Mary F. Scranton's Ewha Haktang girls' school, which was opened with only one student in 1886. The meaning of Ewha is "Pear Blossom," which was conferred by the emperor Gojong. The pear blossom image is incorporated into the logo of the school.

This institute stands at crucial turning point and facing new challenges. Ewha Womans University is determined to turn the new challenges into new opportunities that will open the door to new and exciting changes, to build an institute that is furnished and equipped for world-class research and education. The university takes its first step as an international hub for women's education.


Conferring to figures provided by Ewha in 2022, there are 25,000 enrolled students at the university. The Student Government Association at Ewha Womans University is organized and run by students. It represents the concerns and interests of the student body, and it also sponsors various activities and programs. To put the university's spirit, the Ewha Volunteer Group volunteers internationally and domestically during every summer and winter vacation.

EWHAROSA program running directly under the Admissions Office acts as the bridge between high school and the Office of Admissions. This program involves volunteers who help and support high school students through offline and online activities so that they can prepare for university.

The newspaper of Ewha Womans University is named "Edae Hak-bo". It was started in February 1954 with the purpose of creating a bright future for Korea's women and the nation. This newspaper is a medium to communicate and educate students, parents, alumni, and general leaders.
