Admissions Briefing Session 
for 2021 High School-College Admission Counselors


                                                           

    

IGC held a joint admissions briefing session for admission counselors of 33 high schools in Incheon on June 28. PAEK Ki-hun, CEO of Incheon Global Campus Foundation, gave a welcome speech, shared the purpose and vision of IGC, and explained the achievements and competitiveness of the campus, which is celebrating its 9th anniversary this year. CEO PAEK said, “As five universities have filled over 80% of the student quota this year, IGC is emerging as an alternative to studying abroad in the COVID-19 era. I expect IGC to play a role as a global education and research hub through the establishment of the Stanford Center.”

Admissions officers from the five universities provided information that admission counselors need, such as the characteristics of each university, major programs, admissions process, and actual cases of successful admissions. A university official said, “As a foreign university, we have a completely different admission process from Korean universities. Language skills, school records, and self-introductory letters that can show qualities that distinguish the student from others and competitive strength are important.”
