Hongik University: Tuition, Admissions, Rankings

South Korea » Seoul » Hongik University

Hongik University is a university with Dangun’s Hongik Humanity as its founding ideology and industry-academia as its educational ideology. Hongik University was originally famous as an art college, and is a university that aims to meet industry and art, with practical departments such as art college, architecture college, engineering college, business school, and law school. Hongik University’s nearby downtown area is called Hongdae, one of Seoul’s top three downtown areas, and is a place where various young people walk around the streets showing off their colorful fashion and art. Perhaps because it is located in the main downtown area of Seoul, there are many students who produce musicians frequently and are full of talent even though there is no music university. Therefore, in 2020, the school officially added practical music majors to the undergraduate department.
