CNU has pursued globalization both in education and research as one of its major goals for the last couple of decades. Currently, CNU has active relationships with more than 200 prestigious universities around the world, and boasts a body of foreign students and scholars exceeding 1,300 on the campus. OIA has taken a leading role in building up such partnerships with foreign institutions and students.
Early 2012, with the inauguration of our new president, Dr. Jung Sang-Chul, OIA merged with the Language Education Center in order to serve more efficiently the international community at CNU. Thanks to the rise of the interest in Korean pop songs (K-pop), dramas, and films overseas, the demand for learning the Korean language has increased drastically in recent years. Our Language Education Center will provide the best Korean language programs to foreign students who want to learn K-pop and other aspects of Korean culture in Korean, including those who want to pursue degree programs at CNU and other Korean universities.
Most importantly, OIA does its best to assist our international students and scholars in adapting as quickly as possible to a new environment at CNU as well as in the surrounding Daejeon metropolis. OIA provides them with all the information and services necessary to daily life in Korea. Each staff of OIA wants to become a friend or a family member with any of our international members. I would like you to stop by our office at any time and tell us what you need. Hope to see you soon!
with best regards,
