아주대학교 국제교육센터 센터장 인사말 배경


Welcome to Ajou University Center for International Education(CIE).

Ever since the CIE has been established under the name of Foreign Language Training Center in May 1986 as a representative language education institution of Ajou University, we have strived to improve students' foreign language skills and Korean language education for foreign students and various foreigners who wish to learn Korean.

In particular, starting with the establishment of the Korean Language Institute in March 2003, more than 1,000 foreigners, overseas Koreans and immigrants take the course annually, practicing the founding principles of Ajou University, “Respect for Humans”, “Seeking Truth from Fact”, and “One World, One Family”.

The CIE is doing its utmost endeavors to provide excellent Korean language education programs to meet Korea's increasing international status. Furthermore, not only we developed Korean language textbooks, we produced Korean video contents so that students of the CIE can take Korean classes for free anytime, anywhere. In addition to the regular course, we provide various programs ranging from special lectures for those who prepare for the TOPIK(Test of Proficiency in Korean) and pre college students to cultural field trips and global buddy programs in order to help students improve their Korean language skills and better understand Korean culture.

The CIE will continue to make consistent efforts to develop your Korean and foreign language ability with the best instructors and curriculum.We are committed to providing the most efficient and effective high-quality language education program to foreigners who wish to understand Korean society & culture and pursue their dreams in Korea, and Ajou University students who wish to show their capabilities on the global stage.

With the CIE, I sincerely hope that all of you can serve as global citizens who can achieve your dreams and contribute to making the world better using your ability to communicate freely with people around the world.
