Overview

The Korean Council for University Education actively pursues partnerships and works to build networks with associations, universities, and other higher education organizations around the world through its International Cooperation Team. It strives to support the internationalization of its member universities, pursue joint projects related to international collaboration, and provide member universities with information on trends and developments in global higher education.


While maintaining informal, collaborative relationships with several dozen organizations in approximately fourteen countries and constantly expanding its international network, the Council currently has partnerships through formal agreements with the following organizations:
National Institution for Academic Degrees and University Evaluation (NIAD-UE), Japan (August 2010)

To promote the internationalization of university education in Korea, the Council also coordinates the Global Internship Program for students at member universities by means of government funding. The program provides support to several hundred students annually for short and long-term internship positions at companies, intergovernmental organizations, and non-profit organizations in all parts of the world. The Council also assists the Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology in the coordination of the Work, English, Study, Travel Program (WEST)-an exchange and internship project with the United States focused on students from low-income families.
