Ministry of Education Suggests Conditions for Successful Studying AbroadThe Ministry of Education released on January 25 a guide entitled 'Conditions for Successful Study Abroad', aimed at parents enthusiatic about sending their children to study overseas as a consequence of the ministry's recent deregulation of foreign education.
The first condition, the guide advises, is to set a clear goal. If students go abroad without a certain purpose, they could fail to return with a sense of achievement.
The educational expenses should also be seriously considered, as some schools in the U.S. charge over 20 million won ($17,000) a year.
The student's ability, including their linguistic proficiency, is extremely important.
Additionally, sticking to 'brand-name' schools could be a waste of time and effort, as many students have to change schools due to their bad academic records.
The ministry emphasized that at least one year of preparation is needed for studying abroad.
