Physics

1. The IUT pre-university curriculum in Physics includes all of the high-school physics courses and some basic university physics courses.

2. The pre-university courses in physics intend to help students well prepare to learn and understand university physics at IUT.

3. There are three kinds of curriculum according to the level of courses: Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced Level.

4. The scope of each level is described as in the following.

  • Basic Level

- The basic level is an introduction to physical worlds for high school students who have learned the physics subject for less than 1 year or even haven't learned physics at all.

IN FOCUS

IUT begins to accept applications for Pre-University Course

We are happy to announce that the Admissions process to IUT Pre-University Course is now open. We have two good news for our new generation of applicants.

Number one - from this year we are launching a two-year preparatory program. This was a long waited event since many parents have been requesting to provide this type of study program. From now on 1st and 2nd year students of academic lyceums and professional colleges have a great chance to study at Inha University preparatory courses for two years. This will enable them to improve their Math, Physics and English language skills further and be ready for an academic life at our University.

Number two – second-year lyceum and college students will have three opportunities to take entrance examination to IUT within a two year program.
