Transfer system: we do not have transfer program for international students. You have to apply as a freshman student.

English courses: English is the medium of instruction in KAIST. Few specific courses are given in Korean but international students can substitute for others taught in English (Regardless of major).

Major: Students will be enrolled without declaring a major. In KAIST, students can select and work on their major from 2nd year.

They then are free to choose from KAIST’s majors, without any additional requirements or admission procedures.
