As South Korea's first national university, SNU has a social responsibility to disseminate the research and information of the University to the public. Also as well as a Korea's leading research university, SNU pursues to be the world's leading university based on the idea of coexistence and co-prosperity for the world. For this aim, one of our strategies is the revolutionary extension of the international academic exchange. SNU Open Courseware is developed to fulfill these purposes. This is open-ended educational content from SNU courses, including syllabi and lecture notes, made available on the internet to support higher education.
