Welcome to the Department of Korean and Islamabad King Sejong Institute.

The Department of Korean was established in 2006 and Islamabad King Sejong Institute in 2012. We are offering Korean language and culture classes from basic to advance levels. With over 125 students currently studying in different classes, we have become one of the three biggest functional courses departments of NUML. And all this was achieved within a few years. Korean language is growing popular amongst the masses and NUML is providing a basic platform for people who want to proceed to Korea for studies, research, business, tourism etcetera.

The delicate combination of native and local teachers, teaching with full dedication and the friendly atmosphere along with latest teaching tools is gaining a lot of praise from students and faculty alike. Resource material is available at central library along with Korean research center. Korea Corner, equipped with internet connection has a range of reference material and numerous Korean dramas and movies.

Considering that education is constant and consistent learning, we put a lot of emphasis on character building as this is the only way we can excel as a department, as a university, and, ultimately, as a nation. We hope to gain new levels of excellence as an academia is never satisfied with his work.


Warm greetings from Department of Korean and Islamabad King Sejong Institute of National University of Modern Languages, Islamabad.
Department of Korean was established on Aug 16, 2014 and Islamabad King Sejong Institute in September 2012. It was a result of rigorous efforts of Korean embassy in Islamabad, NUML’s positive cooperation, and support of ‘The Korea Foundation’, ‘King Sejong Institute Foundation’ and ‘Human Resource Development’ of Korea. NUML is the only university in Pakistan offering Korean language and culture education to masses.
Ever since Korea and Pakistan recognized each other back in 1968, both countries strived to enhance the mutual ties. To keep the friendly ties, it is important to know the language and culture of that country. Many people all over the globe got interested in Korea after the tremendous economic achievements of 1970s and 1980s. It resulted in an increased popularity of Korean language and culture at an unprecedented scale. Over 150 American and Canadian universities are offering Korean courses with the number increasing every year. Korean language education has gained tremendous momentum in Europe, Oceana and Asia, as well.
Currently, Department of Korean is offering Certificate (6 months), Diploma (6 months) and Advance Diploma (1 year) level courses while IKSI is offering Special Certificate (3 months) and Diploma (3 months) courses. IKSI classes are mainly catering for employment seekers and culture education. These courses will boost Pakistan’s economy by enhancing employment chances of students. We have a great combination of local and native speaker teachers who are putting their best efforts to further develop the department and are leading by example. Students enjoy great classroom atmosphere with top notch facilities. Abundant resources for research are available in central library, Korea Corner and Korean Research Center. We are doing our best to facilitate the people proceeding to Korea for education, research, travel, business and other related motives.
Thank you very much

학과 소개

파키스탄 국립외국어대학교 한국어학과 및 이슬라마바드 세종학당에 오신 것을 환영합니다.
파키스탄 국립외국어대학교 한국어학과는 2006년 8월 16일, 이슬라마바드 세종학당은 2012년 8월에 개설되었습니다. 한국어학과 및 이슬라마바드 세종학당은 주파키스탄 대한민국 대사관의 끊임없는 노력, 파키스탄 국립외국어대학교의 적극적인 협조, 한국국제교류재단, 세종학당재단 및 한국산업인력공단의 아낌없는 후원으로 이루어졌습니다. 또한 파키스탄 국립외국어대학교는 파키스탄 내에서 처음으로 파키스탄인들을 대상으로 한국어 교육을 시작한 고등 교육기관이기도 합니다.
1968년 수교이후 한국과 파키스탄 양국은 다방면에서 상호협력관계를 발전시키기 위해 노력했습니다. 상대국과 우호관계를 유지하기 위해서는 그 나라의 언어와 문화를 잘 이해하는 것이 중요합니다. 1970년대와 1980년대의 한국 경제 발전에 힘입어 세계적으로 많은 사람들이 한국어와 한국 문화에 관심을 갖게 되었습니다. 따라서 한국어의 인기가 많아지고 한국어 교육의 미래도 한층 더 밝아졌습니다. 현재 미국과 캐나다에서는 150개 이상의 대학교에서 한국어를 가르치고 있습니다. 한국어 교육을 실시하는 대학교 수도 해마다 증가하고 있습니다. 한국어 교육은 유럽, 오세아니아와 아시아에서도 급속하게 성장하고 있습니다.
현재 파키스탄 국립외국어대학교 한국어학과에는 한국어 초·중·고급과정이 개설되어 있는데 초급과 중급과정은 6개월, 고급과정은 1년 기간으로 운영되고 있습니다. 이슬라마바드 세종학당은 한국문화를 알리고 취업을 목적으로 하는 파키스탄인들 대상으로 수업하고 있으며 향후 파키스탄 경제에도 도움이 될 전망입니다. 파키스탄에서 가장 훌륭한 현지인 및 원어민 선생님들을 모시고 수업을 하고 있습니다. 학과 발전에 적극적으로 참여하는 선생님들은 여느 학과의 좋은 본보기가 되고 있습니다. 학생들은 나날이 좋아지는 교수 학습 여건과 환경 속에서 즐겁게 공부를 하고 있습니다. 중앙도서관, 코리아 코너 및 한국어자료실에 학습에 참조될 만한 교재 및 서적들도 많습니다. 교육, 사업, 여행 등 다양한 목적으로 한국에 방문하거나 한국과 여러 측면에서 교류를 추진할 계획이 있으신 분들에게 한국어학과에서 적극적으로, 최선을 다 해서 도움을 드리도록 하겠습니다.

대단히 감사합니다.
