British universities put down a welcome matMagnificent, nice and wonderful were the buzzwords at the home of the British ambassador on Thursday. No, the ambassador, Charles Humfrey, was not being described, for "MNW" is a joint effort by three British universities to create an office in Korea for prospective Korean students.
Officials from the University of Manchester, the University of Nottingham and the University of Warwick met with their counterparts at leading Korean universities for the opening of MNW Universities. The British Council is also involved.
According to the new liaison officer, Choi Jeongmi, a graduate of Warwick University's graduate program, the newly opened office in Seocho-gu will be a one-stop information center that provides details about courses, how to apply, scholarships and more.
"Our aim is to promote and enhance MNW's high reputation in Korea," Ms. Choi said. According to the British Embassy, there are 200 Korean students at the three schools.
