Republic of Korea Students, Welcome! Thanks Tony Choi of StudySA !!

uniform3St George College is proud of its diverse cultural and linguistic student composition and welcomes international students in search of educational excellence.

St George College recently reached out to one of Australia’s international partners – the Republic of Korea (more commonly referred to as South Korea).

Education has been a major export for South Australia with South Korea being one of the largest sources of international enrolments. South Australia provides a high-quality education in a safe and friendly environment at a reasonable cost and hence is one of the most popular destinations for Korean students.

There is a direct benefit to the Australian economy in the provision of educational services to Koreans wishing to study in Australia. Broader long-term benefit comes, however, from a greater understanding by Australians of Korean culture.

This can arise through contact and collaboration at all stages of the Australian education system—from secondary to postgraduate studies and beyond. Benefits will include increased trade, and international collaboration at both government and business levels.
