University of Science & Technology (UST)

UST is the graduate-level education program in the field of Astronomy and Space Science being operated in Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (KASI) which is the National Research Institute on astronomy and space science. UST aims to foster professional scholars for the 21st century, and USTians perform researches and get education via participation in national and/or big projects together with their supervising professors affiliated in KASI. 


Merits of UST

There are larger number of faculties than that of students, so USTians can have multiple supervisors and/or guidance by several researchers in the team. USTians can have access to forefront research facilities, and are covered with decent stipends, tuition fees, dormitories, etc. Applications are made twice a year for Master-Doctoral Integrated and Doctoral courses (some Master courses also). UST-KASI is a place where you can both participate in top-level astronomical researches and obtain academic degrees together with being friends with future astronomers.   UST Astronomy and Space Science
