Chapter 3: Restructuring universities in Korea

Jaehoon Kim

Abstract

This study examines measures to enhance the competitiveness of Korean universities and to respond to the decline in the school-age population and the problems of the rapidly increased number of universities in the country. It examines the academic achievements made by Korean universities and the changing regulations under which Korean universities can be established. It analyzes the impacts of the expanded university system and the possibilities of adopting quasi-market competition for research funding and students, which has been a foundation for success elsewhere.
