During the event, Indian students will get an opportunity to visit the top three universities in Seoul viz. Seoul National University, Korea University, Yonsei University. These visits will include workshops on entrepreneurial talks, how to manage cultural differences, networking, counselling sessions and so on. The session will also provide the students a chance to interact with professors in classes and workshops, network, and attend counselling sessions. Students will get free passes to attend the Business Conference which will be panelled by some of the top Indian speakers providing them a chance to meet their potential future employers. The students will also be provided with proper accommodation and health facilities along with a chance to apply for internship programs in international universities. During the summit, Professor Chun S. Moon, Professor and Director of Planning and Communications with the Graduate School at Korea University and Dr. Lakhvinder Singh, Chairman of India- Korea Business and Policy Forum and head of the Korea Peace Movement will be sharing their views with the students on intercultural relations and the scope of India-Korea Relations.
Talking about the initiative, Mr. HP Singh, Managing Director and Founder, Tomorrow’s India Global Summit said, “The student university visits are a part of our ethos to showcase India to the world. Tomorrow’s India provides a platform for students to explore various cultural and educational opportunities that Universities in Seoul have to offer. Students will not only get to experience the university life in Korea but also will get to attend the classroom sessions. This is an excellent opportunity for the students to have first-hand discussions with Korean professors which will offer them a window of opportunity to observe and consider studying in Asia’s third largest economy.”
The initiative by Tomorrow’s India Global Summit complements the already established Korean policies for higher education where the government offers scholarships to promote diversity in academia as a result of which, international students in South Korea benefit from scholarships at the undergraduate and postgraduate level. The Korean Government Scholarship Program also promotes international cooperation in education by inviting talented international students to Korea for advanced studies, especially research students at the master’s and doctoral level. Korea has a multitude of established global brands such as Samsung, Kia Motors, Hyundai and so on which also have a strong foothold in India. An initiative such as this is fully poised to encourage Indian students to opt for higher education in Korea and utilize their skills to contribute to these top organisations of the world.
Tomorrow’s India Global Summit is being supported by the Embassy of India in the Republic of Korea, and will have participants from India, Korea, Ethiopia, Finland, Singapore, South Africa, Taiwan and Zimbabwe.
