Korea Corner at University Library

The University Library (UB) of the University of Groningen has a special Korea Corner, a place where anyone interested in Korea can consult literature and digital information about the country. The Corner was developed by the University Library and GSG’s Centre for East Asian Studies Groningen (CEASG) with a generous grant from the Embassy of the Republic of Korea.

As of 18 December 2014, the Korea Corner was officially opened by Sibrand Poppema, President of the Board of the University, in the presence of Minister Counsellor Jong-Ho Choi of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea. The Korea Corner is intended to promote Asia among students.

Exchanges with Pusan National University

After the opening of the Korea Corner, an exchange agreement between the University of Groningen and Pusan National University was signed. It enables students from Groningen to do placements at Korean companies, and organizations and students from Korea to spend time in Groningen.
