1. Adjusting to Life in Korea

Climate and Weather

The climate of Korea is characterized by four distinct seasons. The contrast between winter and
summer is striking. Winter is bitterly cold and is influenced primarily by cold Siberian fronts. Summer is
hot and humid due to the maritime pacific high. The transitional seasons, spring and autumn are sunny
and generally dry. Temperatures in all seasons are somewhat lower than those at the corresponding
latitudes in other continents, such as North America or Western Europe. The temperatures in Seoul,
which is in the latitude of Richmond, Va., are closer to those in New York which is located 500
kilometers (300 miles) farther north from the latitude of Seoul. The variation of annual mean
temperature ranges from 10℃ to 16℃ except for the mountainous areas. August is the hottest month
with the mean temperature ranging from 19℃ to 27℃. January is the coldest month with the mean
temperature ranging from -8℃ to 7℃. Annual precipitation is about 1,300mm in the central region.
More than a half of the total rainfall is concentrated in summer, while precipitation in winter is less than
10 percent of the annual total.

The prevailing winds are southeasterly to southwesterly in summer, and northwesterly in winter. The
winds are stronger in winter, from December to February, than those in other seasons. The land-sea
breeze becomes dominant with weakened monsoon winds in the transitional months, September and
October.
The relative humidity is the highest in July with 80 percent to 90 percent nationwide, and is the lowest in
January and April with 30 percent to 50 percent. It has a moderate value of about 70 percent in
September and October. The monsoon front approaches the Korean Peninsula from the south in late
June, moving gradually to the north. Significant rainfall occurs when a stationary front spreads over the
peninsula.


The rainy season over Korea, the so-called jangma, continues for a month from late June to late July. A
short period of rainfall comes in early September when the monsoon front retreats back to the north.
This rain occurs over a period of 30-40 days in June through July at all points of South Korea, and
accounts for more than 50 percent of annual precipitation in most regions.
Annually, about 28 typhoons occur in the western Pacific, and only two or three among them approach
the Korean Peninsula between July and October.

Precipitation distribution on the Korean Peninsula is mainly affected by orography. The southern coastal
and its adjacent mountain regions have the largest amount of annual precipitation which is over
1,500mm (60 inches). The sheltered upper Amnokgang (Yalu) river basin in the north, on the other
hand, experiences less than 600mm (24 inches). Since the precipitation is larger in the crop growing
areas in the south, water needs for agriculture are normally well met. Even though the annual mean


             International Student Handbook          8
precipitation is more than 1,200mm (48 inches), Korea often experiences drought due to the large
fluctuation and variation of rainfall, making the management of water resources difficult.




Four Seasons


Spring
Spring begins during the middle of March in the central part of the country, and toward the end of April
in the northern region. Spring is rather short in the north. As the Siberian high pressure front weakens,
the temperature rises gradually. Yellow sand which originates in the desert or arid areas of Mongolia
and China, known as hwangsa, occasionally blows into Korea during early spring. The hwangsa often
causes low visibility and eye irritation.


Summer
Summer can be divided into two periods; jangma, a rainy period which occurs during the early summer
months, and a hot and humid period which occurs in August. Rainfall during the summer time is
characterized by heavy showers. Daily precipitation often exceeds 100mm (4 inches), with extremes
topping 300mm (12 inches). Occasional storms caused by typhoons that pass through the peninsula
sometimes cause a great deal of damage, although the loss of life is rare. Regional temperature
contrasts are not very striking during the summer season although the northern interior and the littoral
are cooler than the southern region. In August, the temperature rises abruptly as the jangma front
moves north toward Manchuria. During this period, the weather becomes extremely hot and humid,
particularly in the western plains and the Nakdonggang river basin area. The daily high temperature
often rises to over 37°C (100°F). Nights are also hot and humid.


Autumn
Autumn is known for crisp weather, lots of sunlight and the changing colors of tree leaves. Beginning in
October, the continental air mass brings dry, clear weather. Traditionally, Koreans enjoy the season of
harvest with festivities of chuseok which is one of the most important national holidays in Korea. It is
often referred to as the Korean version of the American Thanksgiving. Autumn in Korea can be
summed up with the simple words of an old Korean saying “The sky is high and the horses get fat.”




           International Student Handbook          9
Winter
The arctic air from the interior of the Asian continent brings bitter cold and dry weather and occasional
snowfall, while also adding warmth to the cold and dry winter weather periodically. Significant regional
climate variations are caused by differences in elevation and proximity to the seas as well as by
differences in latitudinal location. The monthly mean temperature during the month of January differs by
about 20 degrees centigrade between the northern and the southern peninsula. Snow remains longer
on the ground in the north. The frost-free period varies from about 130 days in the northern interior to
about 180 days in the central region. On the southern coast, it lasts roughly 225 days of the year.

3. Academic Life

GNU Student Card
                                             An academic assistant in each department will also help
                                             you to fill out the application for a student card which can
                                             be used as a cash card. This means you have to open a
                                             bank account to get issued your student card. You can't




          International Student Handbook             10
borrow books from the library and get access to the computer centers at GNU without your student card.




Academic Support
Academic Support is integral to fostering Academic Excellence in students. As a GNU student, you will
find many individuals and offices employed expressly to help you be a better student. Your faculty
members are the first resource for students who need help with a course. Gyeongsang National
University faculty keeps office hours (9:00~18:00, Mon~Fri) so students can get the academic support
they need. Asking questions outside of class about grades and clarification about course assignments
are not considered rude or disrespectful when handled tactfully. Academic Advisors are exchange
faculty members who accompany their students to GNU and work as their counselors. They are hired
by GNU during the exchange period and assist their students with time management, course selection,
and program requirements, which are all essential for academic excellence. Administrative assistants
are a valuable resource for GNU international students. International students can depend on
administrative assistants for whatever difficulties they need to work.

Course Registration
Advice on course selection, graduation requirements, and registration is given by an academic
assistant in each department. New international students need to enroll in courses on the first day of
the semester, while current international students should confer with their academic assistant during the
official enrollment period.



Grading System
Student performance is usually graded on a 100 point scale. Except for a few courses, students are
subjected to a bell-curve way of grading.

  Score    100~95 94~90          89~85      84~80 79~75 74~70            69~65   64~60

  Grade        A+         A        B+         B          C+      C        D+        D
Failure: F, F-grades will not appear on your academic transcripts



Credits
Each course is independently assessed in one semester. Usually a three-credit course consists of three
hours per week of classroom teaching for 16 weeks all within one semester.




          International Student Handbook            11
Korean Language Course
GNU offers regular Korean Language Courses each semester that consist of six levels. Each course
runs for 15weeks. Students should take a placement test before the beginning of classes.
