Dean's Welcome

Warm greetings from Korea University Graduate School
KU was ranked 69th in the World University Ranking 2020 climbing 14 places from last year’s, 11th in Asia and
1st among Korea’s comprehensive private and public universities released by Quacquarelli Symonds(QS).
KU is considered a world class research-oriented university and stands among the top 100 universities in 27

out of 48 subjects within five academic disciplines - Arts & Humanities, Social Science & Management,



Engineering & Technology, Life Science & Medicine, and Natural Science areas evaluated.



KU demonstrated a balanced placement in its entries, having 13 disciplines in the humanities



and 14 in the sciences that placed in the top 100. It proved that the university succeeded in avoiding



disproportionate developments in different subjects.



KU preparing The Fourth Industrial Revolution offers advanced Master’s and Doctoral degrees spanning



the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and engineering. These programs share a number of



distinctive and desirable features: a high level of engagement between distinguished faculty members,



outstanding students and a rich campus environment. Complementing and enriching these degreegranting



programs are a wide range of interdisciplinary units that promote intellectual activities and



research across departmental and divisional boundaries. For example, KU is dedicated to fostering



future creative intellectuals who will hold the key in the uncertain and ever-changing era of The FIR by



making Korea’s first AI graduate degree program. KU has also increased the number of scholarships for



international students invited by the Korean government and reformed some of the scholarship systems



created for its international students in Graduate School especially.



"Share your values to create new values at Korea University". We welcome you with deep gratitude.
