IEQAS Certified

SKKU is one of the Korean universities which have been accredited by the International Education Quality Assurance System (IEQAS) administered by Ministry of Education and National Research Foundation of Korea.

IEQAS qualitatively as well as quantitatively examines a particular university’s services, administration, education, infrastructure and other factors that are generally considered important for international students. In short, IEQAS aims at enhancing South Korean universities’ management skills of international students by suggesting ideal standards for international student recruitment, caring, and retention. A tertiary higher education institution accredited by IEQAS will have more chances to win the Global Korea Scholarship, which will eventually and substantially benefit the students it takes in.
