part of our ethos to showcase India to the world. Tomorrow’s India provides a
platform for students to explore various cultural and educational opportunities
that Universities in Seoul have to offer. Students will not only get to experience

The initiative by Tomorrow’s India Global Summit complements the already
established Korean policies for higher education where the government offer
s scholarships to promote diversity in academia as a result of which,
international students in South Korea benefit from scholarships
at the undergraduate and postgraduate level. The Korean Government
Scholarship Program also promotes international cooperation in education
by inviting talented international students to Korea for advanced studies,
especially research students at the master’s and doctoral level. Korea has a
multitude of established global brands such as Samsung, Kia Motors,
Hyundai and so on which also have a strong foothold in India. An initiative such as this
