S. Korea to upgrade professors from Laos
Permalink   


The government and a local university are seeking to run a program which enables university professors without doctorates in developing countries to get educated here though scholarships and garner doctorates.

The program, the first of its kind in Korea, is sought as part of efforts to increase the country's contribution to the international community.

The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology has recently tasked Yonsei University with checking the overall educational environment of the college of science at National University of Laos.

A four-member due-diligence team, led by Kim Yong-chul, vice dean of the college of science at Yonsei, will be sent later this month to the university in Vientiane, officials said.

It will mainly evaluate the college's facilities, equipment, curricula and teaching staff. It will submit a report documenting its evaluation results to the ministry, which will figure out how to help enhance education at the college.

NUL professors to be chosen under the program will receive scholarships from the Korean government, which are expected to cover the cost of living and tuition fees for up to four years.

"It is important for our nation to play a role in helping less developed countries and engaging in international cooperative efforts, so as to join the ranks of the world's advanced countries," Kim Hae-kyung, dean of the college of science at Yonsei University, told The Korea Herald.

"International cooperation is one of the big issues at local universities. In tandem with the government, Yonsei will see how it can do its part to help the universities."

Yonsei's science college previously educated some professors from Mongolian University of Science and Technology as part of efforts to increase exchanges with foreign universities.

The government has run the "Global Korea Scholarship" program, which is designed to help enhance Korea's image and form a global network of people with a connection to the country. Since its inception in 1967, some 2,480 students from more than 110 countries have been invited to Korea under the program.

"In line with government efforts to enhance the national prestige through contribution to the international society, we are exploring ways to share our knowledge and know-how (with underdeveloped nations). If this program succeeds, we will seek to develop various aid programs with other local universities," a ministry official said.

         It seems very good but will there be in the international level which the nations would accept all around the world specially by the first world countries such as Britain, United States , Canada , Australia and European countries . As I know such as any doctors from any countries  who would like to practice medicine in the US must pass the examination and have some  experience few years in the hospital in the UD first before they could get the license so do physicists , mathematicians, chemists , biologists and scientists.

I think universities of Korea are acceptable because Korea's universities such as Seoul National University rank very high ( rank 47) in world university better then some europe university and Oceania.
