Two foreign universities open branch campuses

Belgium's Ghent University has opened a branch in South Korea's Incheon free economic zone, or IFEZ, becoming the first European institution to open a campus here – and a ceremony that marked the opening of a branch of America’s University of Utah was held in the free economic zone in Songdo, also a home to the United Nations Green Climate Fund, reports Yonhap News Agency.

Ghent University, one of the top-rated schools in the world for bioscience, is expected to offer classes to some 900 local and foreign students, with the University of Utah offering classes to some 270 students in psychology, journalism and social welfare.

With the opening of the two new foreign branches, the number of foreign universities here has risen to four. The foreign institutions are partly aimed at attracting foreign investors to the IFEZ located near Incheon International Airport, the main gateway to the capital, Seoul.
