After the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident, public opinion of nuclear power generation changed. In this study, the differences in opinions of nuclear power generation between Japanese and Korean university students were examined. The surveys were conducted at three universities using paper questionnaires. It was found that students studying nuclear engineering in both countries had more favorable opinions of nuclear power than those studying other majors. In comparison, trust in the government's management of nuclear power plants and the perceived danger of nuclear power plants also affected opinions of nuclear power plants in both countries. These results cannot be generalized because the number of respondents was limited.
