Higher Education in Korea

Up to 40% of all courses at most Korean universities are taught in the English language.  South Korean universities are, in a drive to internationalise, expanding the number of international programmes and exchanges with overseas universities and bringing in professors with English as their first language.  Quotation from South Korea’s First Vice-minister for Education: “We have a lot of incoming students who are doing joint degrees so it is natural for this [English language teaching] to be happening.”

The Pohang University of Science and Technology in South Korea, only founded in 1986 – is now in the top 30 of the Times Higher Education global universities’ league table. www.postech.ac.kr
