Cheju Halla University is a private university in Jeju City, the principal city of South Korea's island province of Jeju-do. Originally established as a nursing school, it retains a strong emphasis on medicine, although academic programs in many other fields are now offered.


The school began its existence in 1966 as Jeju Nursing School (제주간호학교), a three-year technical institution. It became Jeju Technical College of Nursing in 1979, Halla Technical College in 1991, and took on its present name in 1998.
