Pusan National University (PNU, also called Busan National University) is one of ten national Universities in South Korea. Located mainly in Busan (or Pusan), the university's English name is a translation of its former Korean name, "Gungnip Pusan Daehakgyo" (국립 부산 대학교), but has since dropped "national" from its Korean moniker.
