					  About National Institute for International Education Development

National Institute for International Education Development(NIIED) is a government
agency affiliated with the Ministry of Education and Human Resources
Development, Republic of Korea, established for education of the Koreans residing
overseas and for international educational cooperation and exchange. The prototype
of the NIIED activities was based on the instruction for the overseas Koreans
conducted by the Student Advising Institute of the Seoul National University in
1962. In the following, it was reorganized into the University's Education Center for
Overseas Koreans, and then transformed to the current system of NIIED in 1992.
NIIED, designated Executive agency in 2001 for advance in Administration service,
functions as education center for Overseas Koreans with its diverse and specialized
programs as well as the central institution of exchange and cooperation of
international education in Korea.
