Four universities face recruitment ban

Four universities will be banned from accepting foreign students for one year, starting this autumn semester, as punishment for poorly managing non-Korean students, reports The Korea Times.

According to the Ministry of Justice, they are: Hansei University, Jeonbuk Science College, Gyeongnam National University of Science and Technology, and Taegu Science University. Those universities will not be able to issue visas for foreign students including freshmen, transfer students and those for language training courses. Foreign students who are currently attending courses will not be affected.

This move follows the evaluation by the justice and education ministries of all colleges that had foreign students in 2014, under the foreign student certification system which was introduced in 2011.
