There are 8 students from Korean Language Diploma Study Programme and 2 students from English Diploma Study Programme. They obtain an opportunity to study in Gangneung Wonju National University, Kyungnam University, and Kangwon University.
“Four students will study at Gangneung Wonju National University, two students at Kyungnam University, and four students at Kangwon University,” said the Head of Korean Language Study Programme, Supriadianto, S.S., M.A. on Thursday (8/2).
