South Korea's Growing Popularity In The Educational Sector

South Korea, a small Asian country, is frequently mentioned in the media. South Korea is rarely out of the news, whether it's the country's tumultuous relationship with its northern neighbour, the global popularity of K-pop, the excellence of Korean dramas, the delectability of Korean cuisine, or the country's astounding 97% Internet penetration rate.

The Republic of Korea, home to multinational conglomerates such as Samsung, Hyundai, and KIA, is widely admired not only for its prodigiously successful businesses but also for its highly educated population (98% literacy rate) and sophisticated work culture.

South Korea has received widespread attention in recent years as a promising new location for international students to pursue higher education. Thanks to the inclusion of at least 40 institutions in the most recent QS Rankings list, the world's tenth-largest economy is quickly becoming a top destination for international students.

With the smash hit of Squid Games on Netflix in South Korea, it starred Indian actor Anupam Tripathi as Abdul Ali. Tripathi received a full scholarship to Korea University in Seoul.

According to India's foreign ministry, over 1,300 Indian scholars are currently enrolled in South Korean universities. So, what has suddenly made it everyone's favourite place to further their foreign education? The answer is its educational benchmarks that are optimal.

South Korean higher education is well-known for its strict adherence to academic standards. The country is a significant economic player, and it requires a skilled labour force to maintain its current level of success.

South Korea ranked 13th in the world in terms of the number of articles included in the Science Citation Index in 2021. South Korean universities offer education in a wide range of subjects, including arts and design, economics and business, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. There are three levels of universities and colleges in South Korea that offer advanced degrees. Universities frequently offer programmes leading to masters and doctorate degrees.

There are federally controlled national universities, public universities run by state or regional governments, and private colleges supported by charitable organisations. Seoul National University has the highest concentration of foreign students, according to QS World University Rankings. Other excellent educational institutions in the country include the Korea Advanced Institute, Yonsei University, and Korea University.

South Korea has a low cost of living and education. Tuition is the single most considerable expense for any international student. Scholarships to study in South Korea are widely available to Indian students. Indian students studying in Korea can receive financial assistance through programmes such as the Global Korea Scholarship and the Asian Students' Scholarship in Korea.

Furthermore, students frequently rely on internships and part-time jobs to help them pay for school. Working hours are limited to 20 per week while in school but are unrestricted when in South Korea on vacation with a D-2 Student Visa. Students who graduate may apply for the D-10 visa, which allows them to begin their job search immediately.
