SUFS – The right place to become a globally recognized leader

We have the following specific founding principles

As the world is ever getting challenged by the tide
of globalization and information era,
Hae Kwang School Foundation discovered the need to
establish an educational institution
specializing on foreign language training.

This served as the basis for establishing
Seoul University of Foreign Studies.
This institution offers master’s degree level studies on interpretation
and translation dedicated to fostering select talented individuals.

Seoul University of Foreign Studies is committed to support students to be fully armed with both linguistic mastery in
English, Chinese or Japanese and professional knowledge and insights in international politics & economy, IT and arts.
This will allow students at Seoul University of Foreign Studies be excellent language facilitators having area-specific
expertise to gain prominence in the global stage as highly talented interpreters or translators.
