Signing memorandum of understanding in SeoulThe University of Birmingham has recently signed a 'Memorandum of Understanding' between the University and Seoul Metropolitan Government. The MOU sets out ways in which the University and Seoul MG will work together over the next three years. The arrangement has come about as a result of the growing number of South Korean Government officers choosing to come to study on the Policy into Practice programmes in the Institute of Applied Social Studies. Officers from Seoul MG are already studying on the MA Policy into Practice (with integrated placement) programme and two officers from Seoul MG will be the first to study on the PG Diploma Policy into Practice (with integrated placement) during 2013-14.

The Memorandum of Understanding was signed by Professor Edward Peck, Head of the College of Social Sciences on behalf of the Vice-Chancellor and Seon Seop Kang, Director of Human Resources Development Division, Seoul Metropolitan Government.
