Since the late 80’s when the government in South Korea encouraged Korean students to study overseas, students from South Korea have been occupying a great percentage of the international students’ population in a number of countries all over the world.
In a feature interview with ICEF Monitor, Julian H. Lee, Managing Director of the Korean agency APPLY International, imparts his expert knowledge of the South Korean outbound student recruitment market, including the role agents play in it. He also highlights important market trends discussed at the ICEF Asia Workshop 2013, including:
- A decline in the number of South Korean students studying abroad;
- A surge in demand for short-term study abroad;
- An increasing interest in regional study destinations within Asia.
