University acceptance

One of the most often asked questions from prospective KIST families is:

Where do our graduates go after KIST?

Our answer is that KIST graduates gain acceptance to, and go on to attend, an impressive list of universities around the world. Below is a list of universities to which KIST students have gained acceptance (as of April 2019).

A note about scholarships: KIST aims to keep international education accessible and, as such, makes best efforts to keep tuition fees as low as possible. But accessibility to tertiary education as well is often limited for some students due to financial reasons. KIST students are supported and encouraged to attain their personal best so that scholarship support becomes a reality for them. Many KIST students have attained various levels of scholarship support from universities around the world (represented below by a black cap icon). It should be noted that for some countries, scholarship is rarely offered prior to entering the university, with such assistance becoming available based on performance attained after enrollment.
