According to the Ministry of Education, Jeju National University was selected today as part of the GTU, or Global Teachers' University project. The project is organized by the National Research Foundation of Korea.
The selection process eliminated most contenders, leaving only Kyungbook National University, the Korea National University of Education, and Jeju National University out of 55 universities in the nation.
If a university is selected for the GTU project, it receives up to 12 years of support. Through the project, students at the faculty of education and the education college, as well as the Graduate School of Education, can become certified as overseas teachers during their studies.
An official from Jeju University commented, saying, "With Jeju National University the most recent recipient of the GTU grant, we can expect an increased number of internationally-certified teachers."
