ABSTRACT

This study starts with an intention to seek ways for facilitating public educational exchanges between Korea and China through promoting private educational exchanges. Since South Korea established diplomatic ties with China in 1992, South Korea and China have recorded the highest percentage of students sent abroad each other. Facilitation of public educational exchanges through promoting private educational exchanges initiated by personal motivation will be helpful in laying a strong foundation to achieve mutual development and prosperity resulting in opening a new chapter in term of bilateral exchanges. To achieve this, this paper has investigated the characteristics of the current status and educational exchanges between South Korea and China. First, South Korea and China had the highest percentage of students sent abroad each other. The percent of Chinese students shows the continuous and stable increase and the share of South Korean students also look stable. With China’s development, the number of Chinese students going abroad for academic purposes will increase and the activities for attracting Chinese students to South Korea will also be revitalized. The number of South Korean students studying in China will also increase. Under these circumstances, facilitation of public educational exchanges through promoting private educational exchanges will be needed to be prepared more sincerely. Private exchanges between China and South Korea are likely to develop further since the two countries have much of mutual trust, bilateral support and attention. This paper proposes the plan to develop private exchanges in two ways. First, the investment and management in the public sector for the development of private exchanges is required. Second, cooperation and management in public administration for the students who have completed these private educational exchanges is needed. Digging into the future plans continuously expand the two countries’ private exchanges and using the particularity in the private sector to advance the development of bilateral exchanges is necessary. It is because the expansion of private educational exchanges can be revitalized as another policy, including public diplomacy. In this respect, the preparation for related studies in South Korea should be made more systematically.
