Hannam University (HNU) is considered one of the most exciting universities at which to study due to its faculty, the beauty of its campus, its friendly Christian atmosphere, and active students. Additionally, HNU is continuing to grow in both students and classroom space as additional construction will soon take place to provide new buildings with the latest in educational technology for our students. HNU was founded in 1956 by American Southern Presbyterian missionaries and rapidly established an international reputation for the quality of its research for innovative and effective styles of teaching. Hannam has attracted students from all over the world. Hannam was founded as a Christian university, and it has never faltered in maintaining its Christian roots as it has a uniquely Christian atmosphere that places emphasis on commitment.

Additionally, HNU is the home of the Linton Global College, a branch of the university in which all classes are taught only in English; it is the first program of its kind in Korea.

Why else would you want to come to Hannam? The hustle and bustle of Seoul is a great thing to experience, however, because Hannam is located in Daejeon, which is in the heart of South Korea, any part of South Korea can be reached in a very short time. Also, Hannam is located in Daejeon, which is famous for its historically quiet and friendly people; which means a safe and quiet educational environment. Hannam also offers a beautiful green campus that provides a clean and relaxing atmosphere to study in.
