HELP University signed an MOU with Daeseong High School on September 6, 2017. Both parties sat down to discuss an exchange of ideas and scholastic co-opt collaboration between the high school including short-term and long-term study at HELP. These students will be enrolled in the English Proficiency Program offered by HELP to give them the confidence and skills in continuing their undergraduate and graduate studies in the near future.
As part of the collaboration, Daeseong High School has also graciously invited HELP University to visit the school in the near future to gain a better understanding of the high school and the Daejeon district of South Korea, where the school is located. Daeseong High School is one of 49 autonomous private high schools in Korea. Autonomous private high schools are established to diversify high school education and their fees are higher than regular private high schools.
These schools have a high entrance rate into prestigious universities. Daeseong High School has a specialised programme called “eStudy Abroad” for students who wish to pursue their bachelor’s degree overseas. Some of the students have successfully enrolled in universities in China and Japan.
