Aberdeen University has become the first UK higher education institution to open a campus in South Korea, specializing in teaching Engineering degrees relating to off-shore oil and gas industries.
Seth Kunin, Aberdeen's Vice-Principal, said: "As part of its economic strategy, the South Korean government is keen to develop its offshore industry, and it is a testament to the academic expertise that exists here that we were chosen as a partner in this project."
"The new campus will export our world-class educational offering to a new market in East Asia, but it will also open up huge opportunities in research thanks to the impressive facilities located there."
Hee Bong Lee, the economic zone's commissioner, also said that they were looking forward to the campus becoming "a centre of expertise in offshore engineering thanks to the strong curriculum on offer". Courses will include MSc programmes in oil and gas topside engineering, subsea engineering, and petroleum engineering, plus an MBA in energy management.
British universities are no strangers to setting up overseas campuses - Lancaster University has one in Ghana; Nottingham University is based in Malaysia; Leeds Metropolitan has a campus in India; whilst Aberystwyth is also planning to expand in Mauritius.
The South Korea campus, which will be located in Hadong, in the south of the country, is scheduled to open in September 2016.
