About Cheongju University

The university currently has over 100 sister universities and is host to more than 1000 international students from dozens of different countries.
Among the many international programs Cheongju University coordinates, the CJU-Ohlone College program is unique. CJU students not only learn English, but they also attend regular courses at Ohlone. This is an opportunity for CJU students to study English intensively, and to experience American college life to its fullest. At the same time, it exposes Ohlone College students and faculty to the culture and perspectives of Korean students.
