'America' most popular country among Korean students to study abroad

It is found that America has been the most popular country among Korean students to study abroad. Though America had high priority for about six decades, those who want to achieve higher degrees like a master's or a doctorate are turning to European countries.

Han Dommers, head of the education promotion department at the Netherlands Organisation for International Co-operation in Higher Education (Nuffic) said, "Europe has an outstanding reputation in the field of research and innovation. It is home of world leading laboratories, higher education institutions and companies, and around 1.5 million full-time researchers."

Korean students prefer America to study abroad


Doomers visited Korea from 28th September to 2nd October, in order to meet potential Korean doctoral candidates applying to higher education institutions in Europe.

He noted that the European Union is the top producer of peer reviewed scientific publications in the world, so higher education institutions and research centres there offer a great variety of specialisations and research networks across all academic fields for Korean students.

Students also attended a briefing session to get information about doctorate programs in Europe during the "PromoDoc" event at the Hankuk University of Foreign Studies in Seoul, on October 02, 2013.

The event took place in Seoul and Busan, presenting various study career and doctorate projects in Europe to Korean students over five days.
