Seoul’s private high schools that accept students through application are planning to take foreigners next year, according to a new Seoul Metropolitan Office of Education policy announced Wednesday.
Schools affected include： autonomous private high schools （not subject to government curriculum standards and that allow more freedom to students than conventional schools）; science high schools （that nurture gifted students in science）, and international high schools （that nurture gifted students with expertise in international relations）.
The policy will allow the schools to admit a "small" number of foreigners, with the exact number not specified. Schools that want foreign students can submit a study plan to the Seoul Metropolitan Office of Education for review.
A Seoul education authority official said authorization for foreign student enrollments will be given "after our review on certain criteria, such as whether the institution has a dormitory or a Korean language curriculum."
