NLCS Jeju, an international school in Jeju Global Education City, will produce its first class of graduates this year. The school has been established and run by Haewul Incorporated, a corporate body that runs international schools in Jeju, and was 100% financed by Jeju Free International City Development Center, or JDC (Chairman, Kim Han-wook). 

NLCS Jeju, the first international school to open in Jeju Global Education City in 2011, will produce a total of 56 graduates in June 2014. Among the graduates, 52 are hoping to enter overseas universities and four to enter domestic universities. 

According to JDC and Haewul Incorporated, every student from the first graduating class of the international school, which marks its 3rd year this year, are expected to enter prestigious universities in Korea and abroad, a miraculous outcome. 

As of January 2014, 47 of the 52 students hoping to enter overseas universities received early admission approval. Among the 47 students, as many as 38 students have been admitted to some of the top 100 universities in the world, including Cambridge (No. 3), University College London (No. 4), and Oxford (No. 6). Students admitted to more than one university were counted only once.*   

Universities in overseas countries, including the U.S. and the U.K., will make  regular admission announcements for successful candidates around April. The results of the college admission tests for students aiming to enter domestic universities will be determined after they go through the tests for domestic universities.  

More positive outcomes are still expected since there are students who have applied for college entrance to overseas universities’ regular admission programs and are currently waiting, as well as for those expected to go through entrance procedures for domestic universities. Therefore, all the graduates of NLCS Jeju are likely to enter top-notch universities at home and abroad this year. 

JDC and Haewul Incorporated said that if the college admission outcomes produced by NLCS Jeju are well promoted, it will help boost the image of the school and draw more applicants to the school. They added that in the long term, these outcomes will be positive for promoting Jeju Global Education City.
