Incheon Global Campus (IGC), The Best Global Education Hub in the world
Incheon Global Campus is a national project established by the Korean government and Incheon Metropolitan City, to innovate the education system of Korea and to nurture next generation of global leaders in the fields of education, economics, industry, culture and arts. With an investment of USD 1 billion, the global campus will host ten of the world’s prestigious universities.
Universities at IGC are “extended campuses” of which graduation assessment and educational management are run by their home campuses. The home campuses are also in charge of appointing faculty members, and students spend one year at the home campus to complete their degrees. Upon graduation, students are awarded the same degree as their counterparts at the home campus.
Incheon is where the country’s west coast originates, serving as the gateway to Seoul and a metropolitan area with 23 million people and the center of Korea’s economic, industrial, and land development. Located 8km from downtown Incheon and 50㎞ from the center of Seoul, IFEZ, and its adjacent Incheon Port, are highly accessible, with major metropolitan areas only 60~90 minutes away.
Past and present projects have helped Incheon grow and develop into the bona fide international city it is today - Incheon Harbor and Incheon subway development project (October 1999); Incheon International Airport project (March 2001); land reclamation projects on public waters; various industrial and logistics facilities development projects; tourism/leisure facilities and housing complex development projects; highway expansion projects; education/culture facilities development projects; Songdo New Town development project and Free Economic Zone Authority (October 2003), Incheon Daegyo Bridge construction project (October 2009); Successful execution of the 2014 Asian Games, announcement of the “Incheon 2030 Future Connect Vision,” etc. Propelled by these projects, Incheon continues to grow today.
