VP's Greeting

Since its founding in 1398, Sungkyunkwan University has been dedicated to advancing higher education and generating prolific leaders to improve the world we all share.  SKKU cherishes its traditional values of benevolence, righteousness, propriety, and wisdom, based upon which our students are educated to be dynamic and creative global elites with independent spirit.  SKKU is the number one private university in Korea, and we are striving to be one of the top 50 ranked universities in the world.

As a global leading university, our international network is so strong that many students from more than 80 countries with a wide variety of cultural backgrounds come study at SKKU every year.  We provide them with great opportunities to experience culture and expand their knowledge so as to maximize and substantiate their potential as outstanding global leaders.  We cordially invite dedicated students who are ready to meet the challenge of a new and diverse intellectual environment to develop their international leadership skills and join in our commitment to excellence.

The Division of International Affairs, comprised of the Office of International Relations and the Office of International Student Services, earnestly makes every effort to facilitate incoming and outgoing students' safety, success, and satisfaction.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask us for assistance.  We are standing ready to help all students studying at SKKU achieve their goals and actualize their dreams.  We warmly welcome you to our community, and wish you the best of luck and happiness!
