On Monday 30th May we were honoured to receive a visit from the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology.
KAIST is often referred to as the MIT of Korea and Asia and it was a privilege to host Professor Seung Lee, Dean of Admissions, Ms Jaeyoung Shim and Ms Eunjung Baek from Admissions. Professor Lee delivered a stimulating presentation to members of the community and focussed not just on academic entry requirements but also about university life in KAIST.
Interestingly, KAIST offers very generous scholarships to both Korean and international students who are interested in STEM fields. With 85% of programmes offered in English this is a new and exciting destination for our students to consider.
The guidance team also had a meeting about admissions. Having placed a student in KAIST for the past three years it was reassuring to know our guidance practices and supporting documents are both accurate and appreciated for their content.
The guidance team also gained further insight in to application evaluation. With only three students being accepted from the whole of Vietnam this year we are well positioned to continue this trend with future students who fit the KAIST profile.
