Dong-A University is located in Busan, South Korea, the country’s second most-populated city after the capital Seoul. It’s one of only two universities within Greater Busan that has both a medical school and a law school.

Established shortly after the end of the Second World War, the university currently has approximately 19,000 undergraduates and 2,450 postgraduates enrolled. Undergraduate teaching spreads across 12 different faculties, from physical education to social sciences, as well as the aforementioned medical and law schools. There are also eight specialized graduate schools.

The university is split across three campuses: Seunghak, Gudeok and Bumin. The Seunghak Campus is arguably the most scenic, located on the slopes of Mt. Seunghak and within sight of Ulsuk-do, an islet that is home to migratory birds near the mouth of the Nakdong River. Gudeok is a 20-minute journey from the other campuses and is located close to the forests of Daeshin Citizen’s Park. Bumin is located in central Busan.
