Standardized English Testing at Chungbuk U

Joining a growing number of institutions in the country to emphasize the use of the English language, Chungbuk National University announced on May 7 that it will adopt standardized English testing for its students.

Students entering in the 2000 calendar year must write the university's English test, more than twice before their third year, to be exempt from mandatory courses in English.

The university will accept exceptional TOEFL and TOEIC scores in lieu of taking the standardized test.

A spokesperson for the university says that the new system will improve the language ability of its students, while providing better employment opportunities upon graduation.
