The Pyongang University of Science and Technology (PUST)

The Pyongang University of Science and Technology (PUST), which matriculated its first group of students in 2008, is North Korea's first and only full-fledged institution of higher education whose faculty will be entirely composed of international scholars and academics, with all instruction in English. Cultures of Resistance network is excited to support this bold experiment. For many of the North Korean students who enroll in PUST, it is their first opportunity to meet citizens of other nations.

We are funding a Lecture Hall at the University, and will be facilitating an international lecture series that will bring a variety of international scholars, scientists, technology experts, and members of the business world to speak to the students of PUST. This is an unprecedented opportunity not only for North Korean students to hear from some of the best minds around the world, but also for visiting lecturers to experience life in North Korea and meet the citizens and future leaders of this so-called "Hermit Kingdom."
