World ORT is the world’s largest Jewish education and vocational training non-governmental organisation.

Started in 1880, World ORT is today operational in 37 countries and helps around 300 000 students around the world. Specialised in technology, our mission is to provide communities wherever they are, with the skills and knowledge necessary to cope with the complexities and uncertainties of their environment.

What is Education?

Education helps people realize their dreams, become who they want to be. Education empowers poorer communities, giving them the opportunity to grow and become self-sufficient. It’s also about sharing and connecting, to learn from each other.

Music-fuelled interest in South Korea was raised to fever pitch in Latin America when the performer PSY laid down the Gangnam plank to closer cultural ties with a 2012 smash hit that’s now approaching 3 billion views on YouTube.

Universidad ORT responded by hosting the Instituto Rey Sejong Montevideo, one of 144 official centres for the teaching of the Korean language around the world, and signing a Memorandum of Understanding with Korea University.

Now, the innovative university has turned up the volume with an academic cooperation agreement with KU, which is ranked 90th among the world’s universities and 16th in Asia. The agreement was signed by ORT Uruguay’s Rector, Dr JOrge Grunberg, and his opposite number at KU, Dr Jaeho Yeom (pictured).

“This agreement will allow regular student exchanges,” said ORT Uruguay Academic Vice-Rector Julio Fernandez. “Our students will benefit greatly from the synergy between this opportunity to study at a prestigious university and our teaching of Korean language and culture.”

ORT Uruguay now has 89 student exchange agreements in operation, covering 20 countries.

“Each year we receive approximately 150 students in exchange, typically for one semester, and send abroad a somewhat smaller number. Students take back the academic credits earned during their semester abroad, which is also an important component of some study programs such as the BA in International Studies,” said Mr Fernandez.
