About the institution

Found­ed in 1946, Seoul Nation­al Uni­ver­si­ty (SNU) is one of the most pres­ti­gious uni­ver­si­ties in Korea and the world. Accord­ing to Times High­er Edu­ca­tion (THE) and Quacquarel­li Symonds (QS), SNU ranked eighth in Asia (2022) and 29th in the world (2023). Con­sti­tut­ing six­teen col­leges, SNU hosts mul­ti­ple col­le­gial and inter­col­le­giate research insti­tu­tions, gov­ern­ment-fund­ed research cen­ters, and devel­op­ment pro­grams for upgrad­ing research infra­struc­ture. Many of SNU’s depart­ments and insti­tutes, espe­cial­ly in the field of engi­neer­ing and nat­ur­al sci­ences, are now glob­al­ly rec­og­nized for their cut­ting-edge research—they are placed with­in top 20 world­wide in terms of pub­li­ca­tions and cita­tions of the Sci­en­tif­ic Cita­tion Index (SCI). SNU is rapid­ly pro­mot­ing its inter­na­tion­al col­lab­o­ra­tions and exchange pro­grams with the pur­pose of becom­ing the aca­d­e­m­ic hub of Asia.
