Pyongyang University of Science and Technology (PUST) is North Korea's first privately funded university. It is founded, operated, and partly funded by associations and people outside the country. PUST was jointly planned and constructed by forces from the North and the South Korea, along with contributions from groups and individuals[citation needed] from other nations, in particular China and the USA.


Preference is given to candidates who have a long-term mindset and are open to staying at PUST for a number of years. Because we view consistency as an integral component of effective education, English teachers are required to commit to an entire 15-week semester. The spring semester begins in early March and finishes in mid-June. The fall semester begins in early September and finishes in mid-December.

An English teaching qualification (TEFL/ CELTA/ TESOL) is also highly preferred.
