“Welcome to NIIED!”
A Responsible Administrative Agency of the Ministry of Education, the National Institute for International Education(NIIED) was initiated as a program to help train ethnic Korean residents of Japan in 1962. For last 57 years, the NIIED has played its roles as a pivotal organization of global human resources development, international education, and international cooperation.
Through Global Korea Scholarship(GKS) program, a global scholarship program sponsored by Korean government, the NIIED finds and cultivates outstanding global talents in Korea and the world. Also, administering Test of Proficiently in Korean(TOPIK), we have directed desired learning methods in studying Korean language and contributed to the world's high demands in learning Korean.
In addition, we operate invitation education programs for overseas Koreans to build their identity as Korean ethnics. Lastly, we've worked on various projects which allow communicating with the world through education, providing Korean teachers opportunities to have voluntary overseas education experiences, and selecting and deploying native English teachers to local schools in Korea.
The NIIED will continue its best to promote Korea's education throughout the world through constant organizational innovation.
President of National Institute for International Education
