Korean Studies VOD Lectures

Overview

This program is designed to supplement the shortage of materials for education on Korea to meet the increasing demand for Korean studies education abroad. Under the program, the Korea Foundation provides overseas universities with audio-visual materials for online lectures on Korean studies in such fields as the humanities, social sciences and economics.

Developed by Kyung Hee Cyber University with support from the Korea Foundation, the materials can be accessed for free through the KF Archive. In addition, overseas universities with plans to utilize the materials for their Korean studies courses will be provided with copies saved to a USB memory stick when they submit their applications for support.
