However, the teachers will still discuss the new student's dormitory accommodation.

For the first time in South Korean history, a transsexual student entered a female-only university.

For example, Seokmyun Women's University noted that a 22-year-old student who underwent gender reassignment surgery last year successfully passed the entrance exam for a lawyer and will begin her studies in March.

"There are no rules prohibiting transgender students from entering our institute," a university spokesman said.

However, the university needs to discuss details regarding the social life of the new student, for example, living in a hostel, since the reception of a transgender student was the first in history, the teacher said.

A student commented to local media outlets: "I hope my example will inspire other transgender students who want to go to women's universities."
