Swansea Builds New Links with Korea and China


Swansea City star Sung-Yueng Ki may be the first of many links between Swansea and Korea, as the University takes part in a British Council-led delegation to the country, aimed at building links and research collaborations.

Swansea University Vice Chancellor Professor Richard Davies is one of the small delegation of senior figures from UK higher education taking part in the visit.

Korea is a major economic power, home to major global companies such as Samsung and Hyundai.

‌The country is investing heavily in education.  Based on the latest figures from the OECD, in 2012 Korea spent £36 billion on research and development, maintaining its position as the fifth largest R&D investor in the world after the United States, China, Japan and Germany.
