Over the last 5 years or so South Korea has become quite a desirable destination for the Indian students and the excellent facilities coupled by the student-friendly environment is making South Korea a promising prospect. The setting is ideal for Indian candidates and we believe that students from our country can easily go and settle there.
Over the past 20 years Mayfair Global Education has profiled and suggested South Korea as the best suitable location for many students from India. English is well understood and valued in those lands and Indian students study and make a fortune there.
Why Choose South Korea?
South Korea offers a great vibe to the students as far as research and education are concerned. Hosting a huge number of international students, each year, South Korea has proved to be one of the best student-friendly cities of the world.
Quite affordable in comparison to other foreign destinations, South Korea offers a great chance for the Indian students to get access to a huge resource of knowledge and research, something which is hard to find back home.
That is why we at Mayfair Global Education often advise students to pursue a course in South Korea. It offers the right kind of environment and students do not feel too detached from their overall cultural background. Moreover, as a premier study abroad consultant for South Korea we think that the country presents a perfect blend of high ranking universities and a welcoming student community which is ideal for any aspiring student planning to study abroad.
Top South Korean Universities
South Korea has quite a lot of state-funded quality universities along with some privately managed polytechnics. At Mayfair Global Education we only focus on the best universities of South Korea which has the impeccable record of placing students in the industry.
Apart from the fabulous government-run universities there are many prominent polytechnics all across the city which not only offers quality education but also at the same time has gained adequate international recognition.
The universities which we mostly target include Yonsei University, Incheon Global Campus (IGC), State University of New York (SUNY), Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology, Pohang University of Science and Technology, Korea University and many more.
Apart from Engineering & Design along with Information Technology, these universities offer quality courses in the fields of finance, accounting, management and hospitality.
Courses that you Can Study in South Korea
South Korea can quite easily be regarded as the hub for technical education. If you are seeking foreign education in engineering and technology then South Korea presents itself with the most achievable option. With much less competition when compared to the likes of United Kingdom or the United States, it is much easier for students to get entrance in a Korean university.
The polytechnic colleges in South Korea have not only gained reputation throughout Asia but also at the same time they have gained recognition worldwide. Starting from electronics and telecommunication, information technology, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering to more modern courses like biotechnology, aeronautics engineering, architecture and robotics, South Korea offers you a wide horizon to choose from.
Now apart from these highly rated engineering courses South Korea also offers quality education in the fields of finance, management, and hospitality. So, students who are looking forward to build a career in the hospitality and service sector can also benefit vastly by pursuing a course in South Korea.
Emerging Jobs in South Korea
As an export oriented economy South Korea is a hub for technological innovation and design. Major electronics brands operate from this country and they have huge manufacturing facilities providing constant support.
That is why the polytechnic colleges of the country and very closely-bound to the industries in order to supply the constant demand of graduates in the industry. Along with the manufacturing, the logistic and supply-chain industry is also booming in South Korea. Plenty of graduates from the renowned universities of South Korea are absorbed by this industry on a yearly basis.
Apart from that the tourism and hospitality industry is also flourishing here in South Korea. South Korea now welcomes a lot of foreigners each year and that is why the hotel industry is also flourishing and demanding fresh graduates and post-graduates in their management team.
A Shortage of Skills
South Korea, despite its achievements is still a scarcely populated country with about 50 million people staying there. Being a small nation South Korea is seriously suffering from a shortage of skills especially in the sectors like finance and banking, hospitality, tourism, and logistics. Though it is true that the universities are doing their best to supply the industry with fresh and qualified resources but at the same time the numbers are too low to meet the requirements.
That is the reason why we at Mayfair Global Education advise students to pursue a finance or logistical engineering course at South Korea. A course in hospitality and tourism also serves fine when it comes to South Korea. South Korea will not only offer you a job but also will settle you in a career.
Average Income after Getting a Job
The average income earned by fresh graduates of South Korea is pretty high. Since the number of jobs available is more and the supply is less, students graduating from universities start from a very high base.
The average income earned by a graduate here in Korea is around US $ 70, 000 annually. That is pretty high and makes a standard living affordable even after paying off the education loan. The main advantage of South Korea is that if you are well-versed with English (as most Indian students are) you will easily get a higher recognition and scope.
Due to its foreign allegiances with countries like the United States and Canada, the South Korean companies are in dire need of English speaking executives and students from India are perfectly fitted for that kind of a role.
Cost of Education in South Korea
We as a consultancy believe in keeping full transparency to the students and in that way we let them know about the financial cost of the education in a country like South Korea.
South Korea is regarded as the most expensive Asian educational destination. However, the cost is not as much when compared to the countries like the United Kingdom, the United States, and even Australia for that matter.
An average cost of US $ 13,000 can be expected to be incurred for a degree in South Korea with the lowest cost will be around $7,000 whilst the highest would reach up to US $ 20,000. However, on the bright side the cost of accommodation is quite cheap and there are suitable student-friendly alternatives available in the country.
