Korean Universities

South Korea is known as one of the four "Asian Tiger" economies, with an economy based on its fast-growing education, tech and tourism sectors. 

More and more students are choosing to study in South Korea, and the country has recently seen dramatic increases in foreign enrolments – from 11,000 in 2001 to more than 89,000 in 2011. The government has announced a plan to increase foreign enrolment to 200,000 by 2032 and is working hard to encourage even more students from America, Europe and Asia to study abroad in South Korea. If you're considering studying in South Korea, these are the best universities according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2019.

A falling birth rate and a projected shortfall in domestic applicants, combined with a desire to foster strong international ties, are behind the government’s efforts. The government hopes to entice even more students to study abroad in South Korea by offering a range of financial incentives to institutions and individuals, streamlining student visa applications and providing employment support for students studying in South Korea who wish to stay on and work .

The new Incheon Global Campus outside Seoul is a partnership with universities from around the world offering degrees from the home university taught by faculty members based on-site in South Korea. By some estimates almost a third of university courses in South Korea are now taught in English with many universities offering new, dedicated international campuses.
