Kookmin University: Tuition, Admissions, Rankings

South Korea » Seoul » Kookmin University

Kookmin University was established in Seoul in 1946 based on the goal of fostering the human resources necessary for an independent country by inheriting the spirit of the Provisional Government of the Republic of Korea. In 1946, a maritime corporation named Shin Ik-hee named the school Kookmin University because they wanted the university to be for the people with an independent spirit, grieving over the failure of an independent state under the U.S. military government. It emphasizes pragmatism and convergence studies, and therefore, it is a very free atmosphere for double or multi-major majors. The professors’ research is also very free, so each professor’s subjectivity is clear, so it is an atmosphere where students can study various aspects.
