Royal Holloway has a long history of welcoming students from South Korea to study at the university, as well as an excellent partnership with Korea University.
We currently have about 25 students from South Korea studying a range of different programmes.
Royal Holloway is also located just 30 minutes from 'Korea Town' in the UK. New Malden has one of the largest Korean communities outside of South Korea, and is the perfect place to find anything you are missing from home.
The Regional Manager responsible for South Korea is Sam Gibson. For further information or assistance with making an application please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sam visits South Korea regularly throughout the year, so please contact him to request a meeting or find out when he will be attending events near you.
