Hallym University is dedicated to providing students with the skills and knowledge that will allow them to meet their goals. Students benefit from the strong knowledge base and professional experience of Hallym’s faculty, and a curriculum that allows students to match their own talents and aspirations with a wide range of course options. Hallym’s primary aims are to promote the pursuit and critical interpretation of new information as well as the international awareness necessary for Hallym students to become future global leaders.

With an increasing population of international students, undergraduates at Hallym gain experience living and working in a global environment. Furthermore, through Hallym’s international network, students have the opportunity to gain first hand experience by studying abroad.

Hallym, a small but strong international university, is a vibrant institution with a bright and exciting future. I invite you to join us as we move forward.

Hallym University was established with the ideal of “Training talented people with a great wealth of humanity and creative intelligence, to promote academic research and culture”.

With our ideas, we educate students:

1. By establishing an education system focusing on students, we will operate “Learning by Objective (LBO)”, which will focus on Foreign Language, Information Technology (IT), and a major field of study.

2. We will continuously support research in the field of Our Core Competencies, such as Life Sciences, and then pursue a leading position in Bio-Technology.

3. With the expansion of infrastructure for lifelong education and the promotion of Industry-University Cooperation, we will play an important role in the local community as a knowledge center.

4. By promoting an advanced, cutting-edge university culture, we will endeavor to produce students who will contribute to their own cultural knowledge development and ultimately to the welfare of the human race. By pursuing the goals described above, Hallym University’s Pride will be maintained as we establish ourselves as “a prestige private university with its own character”.

Hallym University was founded with the ideal of cultivating students of rich character and creative thinking, and of advancing academic and cultural promotion. For this purpose, the University set the following three objectives as its founding educational mission:

First, to enable students to develop a broad cultural perspective, good judgment, moral ethics, and physical vitality.

Second, to foster a positive attitude in our students as they address a changing world, in order to promote research and education in close cooperation with other research institutions at home and abroad.

Third, to endeavor to produce students who will contribute to their own individual development, national prosperity, and, ultimately, to the welfare of the human race.
