Korea Economic Institute of America Presents:

Why are Less South Koreans Studying in the U.S.?

Livestreamed On Zoom

Starts: October, 23rd 2020 EST

Participants

Kyle Ferrier

Dr. Stephanie Kim

Event Description

Commentators have pointed to the “Trump Effect” for falling international student enrollment in the U.S. higher education sector. When taking a closer look at student mobility trends from South Korea, however, the facts and figures tell a different story. For the past two decades, South Korea has been consistently the third largest sender of international students to the United States. But the number of South Korean students who study in U.S. higher education has been steadily falling well before the more recent general declines in international student enrollment.

Please join KEI for a discussion with international education expert Stephanie Kim on the underlying causes of this concerning trend, particularly internationalization efforts in South Korean higher education, and the significance for the U.S. and the U.S.-South Korea relationship.

This event will be livestreamed on Zoom with an interactive Q&A session. Please RSVP to receive the webinar link on the day of the event.
