Number of Foreign Students Rapidly On The Rise To Tackle Student Shortage

‘ 대입 인구 절벽  타개 , 광주 · 전남 , 외국인 유학생 급증

 

As the population of Korean university students decreases, the Ministry of Education has encouraged attracting foreign students to the country. Accordingly, it led to a big increase of foreign students in Gwangju and Jeollanamdo in recent years.

 

Based on sources, the number of foreign students in Gwangju and Jeollanamdo was only around 3,000 some 5 to 6 years ago, however, the figure has been rapidly on the rise and now it is estimated at around 7,000 to 8000, as local universities focused on attracting foreign students to tackle the decreasing student population issue and financial difficulties.

 

Reportedly, in 2015, the Ministry of Education announced its plan to attract some 200,000 foreign students to the country by 2023 to improve international competitiveness of the schools.

 

As for nationalities, in 2019, Chinese students still took the biggest portion in the region, however, the number of Vietnamese students also dramatically rose, and the so called Korean Wave or Hallyu became another big reason to bring students to Gwangju and Jeollanamdo.
