Korea University (KU) was established as "Bosung College" in 1905 under the banner "Education Saves the Country." Throughout the modern history of the Republic of Korea, the university has stood as a symbol of the spirit of resistance, manifesting critical intelligence and the conscience of the nation.
Over the 110 years since its founding, KU has transformed itself from a leading domestic university to a globally prominent one. Today, KU has academic exchange partnerships with at least 850 universities and institutes in over 90 countries. Treasuring its proud and unique identity as the nation's top university, KU continues to enhance its capabilities and connections around the world to become a leading globally focused, research-driven institute.
