Top Universities in Korea


What are the most popular Universities in Korea? uniRank tries to answer this question by publishing the 2021 South Korean University Ranking of 190 South Korean higher-education institutions meeting the following uniRank selection criteria:

  • being chartered, licensed or accredited by the appropriate South Korean higher education-related organization
  • offering at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees)
  • delivering courses predominantly in a traditional, face-to-face, non-distance education format
Our aim is to provide a non-academic League Table of the top South Korean Universities based on valid, unbiased and non-influenceable web metrics provided by independent web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the Universities themselves.
