CHEONGJU UNIVERSITY

The Most Prestigious University
in the Central Region of Korea!
We would like to talk about the bright
future vision with our students.

The Chungsuk Academic Foundation (formerly Daeseong Academic Foundation) is the parent foundation of our university.
The Cheongseok Academic Foundation’s beginning can be traced to 1924, when Daeseong Primary School was founded with the mindset of saving the country, which was under Japanese rule, through education. Today, it has become a landmark of education, made up of seven schools ranging from elementary schools to universities.
The Cheongseok Academic Foundation has raised 140,000 talented individuals to this day, and is currently aiding 20,000 students in their pursuit of knowledge in its capacity as a national private school of tradition.
