Abstract

This paper is the first production of new project vocationally-oriented higher education institutions in Japan and Korea known respectively as senmongakko and jeonmun daehack. In recent years, we had individually become aware of the changing role and growing significance of these institutions in the process of our research projects on the higher education reforms taking place in Japan and Korea (Eades, Goodman and Hata, 2005; Hatakenaka, 2004, Kim, 2001). We were also aware not only of our own ignorance of exactly how such institutions operate, but also the apparent lack of research on them. An exhaustive search of the literature in English, Japanese and Korean which we carried out in May/June 2005 confirmed that very little, and virtually nothing of an academic nature, has been published about these institutions. (The rest omitted)
