Yonsei University opened the door to modern higher education over one century ago. It has since then emerged as the nation’s top private university and ranks among the world’s most prestigious universities. Building on our history and tradition, Yonsei will actively pursue a new future. Seeking to find our place in the spectrum of civilizational transition, Yonsei will lead the next 100 years and write a new history.
We are now entering a world of unimagined possibilities. In a whirlwind of massive transformations, the rapid development of communication and scientific technologies in particular are reshaping the university teaching and research environment entirely. The demand is rising for a new education model that supports a generation expected to live to be 100 years old. Thus, Yonsei University is reforming its research, education system, and supporting administration in order to lead the way in forward-thinking research and education for a changing society.
