Hanna Park, WES Group Manager for the Asia Middle East region. In this article, we offer an introduction to the education system of South Korea, with insight on how best to evaluate common academic credentials from both the secondary and tertiary system. As a follow up to this profile, WES offered a free interactive webinar on June 1. Hanna Park, WES Group Manager for the Asia Middle East region, with opportunities to submit Korea related questions at the end of the session. If you missed this session, you can listen to an archived recording of the session here. Introduction. At 1. UNESCO 2. 01. 0, South Korea has the highest tertiary gross enrollment ratio of any country in the world total enrollment in tertiary education, regardless of age, expressed as a percentage of the total population of the five year age group following on from secondary school, a statistic that is emblematic of the premium that is placed on education in the Republic of Korea. Sixty five percent of Korean 2. OECD 2. 01. 0, while over 9. By both measures, Korea ranks Number One among OECD countries. Based on international test scores, graduation rates and the prevalence of higher education seekers, South Korea is widely perceived as having one of the best K 1. A study by education firm Pearson, with data from the Economist Intelligence Unit, found South Korea to have the second best education system in the world after Finland. South Korea is also well known for the results its school children achieve in the OECDs triennial Program for International Student Assessment PISA, which evaluates the scholastic performance of 1. South Koreans ranked second in reading, fourth in math, and sixth in science in 2. Alongside Korea and other regional powerhouses such as China Shanghai Metro, Singapore and Hong Kong Europes Nordic countries also perform well on the PISA assessments. However, while Nordic educational success is largely attributable to well funded and high quality public schools, the success of Korean school children is often attributed to significant parental investment in after school classes and other forms of private or additional tuition outside of the public school system. Korean children spend 2. Finland and 1. 80 in the United States. By some measures, the average Korean child spends 1. According to a PISA criterion known as study effectiveness, South Korea ranks only 2. Children in Finland, the top ranked country in study effectiveness and third ranked overall, spend significantly less time in school and in studying in general than is the case in Korea. And therein lies the educational conundrum that policymakers in Korea face. They have a highly motivated and educated populace, but the system is failing to maximize the effort being put in by its students and teachers. The government has introduced reforms in recent years designed to reduce the emphasis on rote teaching methodologies focused on test taking, by lessening the importance of examination results in the university admissions process. However, there is a general consensus among policymakers that there is still a long way to go. At the university level, there is also much work to be done if the government is to raise standards at its best institutions to a world class level, as it wishes to do. According to the 2. Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Koreas highest ranked university, Seoul National University, sits among the 1. The Times Higher Educations Ranking puts just six institutions in its top 4. Shanghai ranking,with Pohang University of Science and Technology 5. Seoul National University 5. Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology 6. Just 1. 0,0. 00 of 5. This dearth of top universities is a major contributing factor to the annual departure of tens of thousands of Korean students to overseas universities, mainly in the United States.

Korean students are currently in the United States, according to March 2. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency. Source UIS Global Education Digest, 2. A phenomenon somewhat unique to education obsessed Koreans seeking English language fluency is that of the so called goose family a family that migrates in search of English language schooling, often with the father staying at home to support them. As many as 2. 00,0. Korean families are thought to have sent their pre college children abroad for an English language education, with 2. New Zealand, Australia and Canada are popular, but public schools in the United States, and Southern California in particular, are the preferred destination. In addition to English fluency, a major competitive edge in the Korean job market, parents are often looking to spare their children from the notoriously competitive and exam focused Korean school system by sending their children abroad. With regards to academic mobility into South Korea, the international student population comes almost exclusively from the Asia Pacific region, with well over 5. China. This represents a significant increase from the 4. Korea just four years previously, and comes close to hitting government targets of attracting 1. International Branch Campuses. For those that do not want to send their children overseas for an international education, there are increasingly options closer to home. South Korea has become a magnet for international schools that are being built outside the major metropolitan areas. On the southern island of Jeju for example a number of branches of international schools from Canada and the UK have been established in recent years to give parents the option of an international education without having to leave Korea. According to current plans, 1. Western schools will have opened branch campuses by 2. Jeju Global Education City, where everyone speaks only English.
