Unique opportunity for Post-graduate Korean studies at Silla Universit
Printer-friendly version

The Department of Korean Studies at Silla University will be opening post-graduate courses (Masters Degrees) from March 2016. The course is currently only offered at a select number of universities in Seoul and so this is an excellent opportunity for those living in and around Busan to study Korean economy, politics, and culture at post-graduate level. The courses offered will teach you about Korea’s history, its economic growth, how it developed politically and democratically, as well as its relationships with Northeast and Southeast Asian nations. By the end of the program you will have extensive knowledge of the Korean peninsula, which, given South Korea’s growing global status will be invaluable in your future career.

The courses will all be taught in English and students need not have backgrounds in economic or political science studies. As part of the course students will be expected to take one Korean class per year, although this is to improve basic Korean language skills only – the course will focus mainly on Korean society. Those with no Korean linguistic ability can also apply and are highly welcomed.

The courses will be taught in the evenings to avoid clashing with daytime work schedules.

The course will be funded up to 50% by the university for non-Korean students. Further reductions in fees of up to 30% can be gained through attaining high grades.

Once again, this type of post-graduate study program is very limited in Korea and as such it is a great opportunity for anyone interested in Korean studies or for those who wish to continue living and working in Korea.

Those wanting to apply can contact andystanm@hotmail.co.uk for more details.

The application period will begin in late October, although no specific dates have as of yet been confirmed.

I look forward to hearing from anyone interested in the course.

Hi Andy.

I'm sure you must be a busy person. I just wanted you to know that I did send you an enquiry about this program, but failed to recieve a response from you.

Hey Andy-


This is similar to the post you made last year, where people said you never responded to their messages. Is this legit?
