28 March, 2018

A delegation from Korean Embassy visited IGNOU on Wednesday and met the VC Prof S B Arora. Director, Korean Culture Centre, India - Mr Kim Kum Pyoung thanked the VC for the support IGNOU has extended for the development of Korean language programme. The VC noted this fruitful development and assured Korean Delegation to start a certificate level programme soon. 

"The relation between India and the Republic of Korea is unique in nature. The relations which are more than 2 millennia old, provides both India & Korea an opportunity to reach new heights in social, economic and political spheres. Presently, thousands of people work in Korean giants like Samsung and Hyundai in India and due to this reason the demand of this programme would be huge in India - said Mr. Shivaji Bhaskar, Coordinator of the Programme”.
Prof Anju Sahgal Gupta, Director-SOFL informed that the Korean certificate level programme would be the only such programme in India which is developed in ODL mode with expertise provided by the Korean Embassy.
“This Certificate level programme will be integrated in nature. The Study Material along with Audio/Visual Learning Material will be provided to all learners for understanding the language in an efficient manner. The programme will be available in all regions through respective Regional centres and anyone above 18 years of age with 10+2 will be eligible to take admission in this programme", said Mr. Bhaskar
