About Jeju National University

Jeju National University (JNU) is the only state-designated Flagship Korean National University on Jeju, an island that has been awarded UNESCO’s triple crown in the field of natural science and was dubbed a New Seven Wonders of Nature. Since its opening in 1952, JNU has worked to cultivate talent who will change the future under the vision of “the university faithful to the basics and the university prepared for the future.”

JNUs vision and desired talent

JNU, with its core vision of “the university faithful to the basics and the university prepared for the future,” established a mid- and long-term development plan titled “JNU 2021.” Under this vision and plan, JNU has promoted innovation to strengthen its academic capacity to lead its students into a bright future. Reflecting on the history and local features of Jeju, JNU strives to educate its students to embody the essence of W.H.O -- which stands for the Winds of communication, the Hills of defiance and the Oceans of inclusiveness -- and has worked to foster creative talent who will innovate the future.

World-class educational environment

The nation’s university assessment has named JNU as having the best educational environment in terms of the ratio of full-time professors to students and per capita educational expenses. This proves that JNU has advanced its educational environment to the next level. JNU runs 14 colleges, 1 graduate school, 3 professional graduate schools and 6 specialized graduate schools. Particularly, it boasts of well-established teacher’s colleges for potential primary and secondary teachers and a comprehensive medical education system that involves colleges specialized in medicine, pharmacy, nursing and veterinary medicine.

Currently, JNU has 1,500 international students from nearly 40 countries and networks with an estimated 300 universities from more than 50 countries including the United States. It has fully established this network of global education and students are encouraged to participate in its overseas internship program, intensive English education program and student exchange program.

JNU and its students prepare for the future together

Its inexpensive tuition and diverse scholarships are representative merits of attending JNU.
