      More and more young people who studied abroad are coming back to Korea, mainly because of the tougher job markets overseas due to the global recession.

      A study-abroad agency analysed the profile of transfer applicants to eight universities in the Seoul metropolitan area between 2010 and 2012 and found that the number of applicants who attended or graduated from universities abroad increased from 840 in 2010 to 1,607 this year.

      Chungang University got 132 applications in 2010 and 282 in 2012. Hankuk University of Foreign Studies saw numbers jump from 68 to 282 over the same period; Sogang University from 114 to 223; Inha University from 28 to 106; and Hanyang University from 150 to 247.
