24 October 2019

New partnership 1+1 programme in Public Policy

This week we were delighted to welcome Professor Kilkon Ko from Seoul National University who was visiting to discuss our new partnership 1+1 programme in Public Policy, opportunities for student exchange and to explore opportunities for research collaboration between the School of Policy Studies at the University of Bristol and the Graduate School of Public Administration at Seoul National University.

Possible plans to develop a PhD exchange and to encourage staff mobility were also discussed.

Professor Esther Dermott, Professor Misa Izuhara, Dr Yiming Wang, Dr Noemi Lenvai-Bainton and Dr Gernot Klantschnig from the  School of Policy Studieswere among the colleagues from Bristol in attendance.

UoB - SNU Public Policy 1+1 partnership

The partnership offers a great opportunity for students from the two universities to study abroad. Seoul National university students will be able to transfer to University of Bristol’s MSc Public Policy Programme after one year of study on their Masters of Public Administration. Students will then graduate with a Masters degree from both Bristol and Seoul National Universities. In addition, University of Bristol students who complete an MSc Public Policy can choose to defer graduation and transfer to Seoul National University to complete the second year of their Public Administration programme, graduating with a degree from both universities.

Further information

Professor Kilkon Ko is Professor of Quantitative Analysis, Research Methods and Policy at the Graduate School of Public Administration, Seoul National University and editor-in-chief of the Asian Journal of Political Science. He is also the director of the Global Masters of Public Administration of GSPA, and the Asian Regional Information Centre of Asia Centre at SNU.
