EU-Korea: the Free Trade Agreement and the Framework Agreement – what do they mean for higher education?

The EU-Korea Free Trade Agreement was the first of a new generation of free trade agreements. Ratified in 2015, it sealed the EU’s relationship with a strategic partner in a deep and comprehensive trade deal, going much further than a set of agreed tariffs on trade in goods. 


Higher education featured in the chapter on trade in services and the agreement provided for the mutual recognition of professional qualifications.

In this briefing, EUA expert Howard Davies analyses what the agreement means for higher education and provides a reflection on how the agreement may evolve in the future.
