Dongseo offers a new kind of education that is different from other existing ones. At Dongseo University, we are striving to break the stereotypes of education to enable us to be better at discovering and fostering the talents of each student. Our purpose is not only to find their talents, but to provide our students with customized education to develop their value as individuals through humanistic and internationalized education. To this end, the university is establishing an Assembly-type system. This new paradigm for higher education represents an advancement over traditional university systems and involves sharing outstanding educational contents from around the world by offering remote lectures from esteemed experts in foreign countries.

Dongseo University is recognized as a leader in internationalization. Through its various global programs, as many as 1,000 students a year can obtain overseas experiences. Moreover, the university is expanding its global programs in areas such as joint degree programs with distinguished universities in foreign countries. These programs create opportunities both for students from overseas and for those at Dongseo University, who may visit one another’s country as though they are part of a single campus.

Through innovative future-oriented education, enhancement of global capabilities, and “education without dropouts,” which values the potential of each student, Dongseo University will help all of its students create a Bright Future.

Dongseo is a globally competitive university that is ideal for promising young students preparing to enter upon the world stage. I am confident your dreams may be fulfilled at Dongseo University, and I look forward to meeting you.
