She mentioned that desire when she returned for the 2012-2013 skating season after a year of hiatus.
In delivering a 148.34-point performance in the free program, Kim made it clear to the world that the ''Queen'' was indeed back.
Kim's overwhelming victory banished doubts over her ability after she sat out the 2011-12 season to contemplate her future.
According to an official from the university, she will learn about the basics of physical education in the first year, but she is also likely to study about sport marketing, sport philosophy and sport psychology.
Her fans have paid close attention to her next move following her outstanding 18-year figure skating career.
Some believe the decision is in line with her future plan to develop her academic career and become an International Olympic Committee (IOC) athletes' commission member.
