Kim Il-sung University, founded on October 1, 1946, is the first university built in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. The decision was made in July 1946 by the Workers' Party of Korea. It is located in Pyongyang, the nation's capital. The university bears the name of Kim Il-sung, the founder of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Four years is the requirement for the department of social science; on the other hand, graduating from the department of natural sciences takes five years.

Mandatory requirements for acceptance include a recommendation from both the principal of the high school and a party member (see Korean Workers' Party). Admission is based upon three criteria: academic grades, life in adherence to the party and society, and the applicant's status. Applicant's status is determined by the involvement of the applicant's parents in the party and whether the family was considered "proletarian" at the time of the party's creation.
