Overall Experience
I learned so much about Korean history, politics, and culture and made so many friends back in Korea as well. This was seriously one of the greatest decisions I have made in my life. - Fordham University View Entire Review
I felt very lucky to have made the friends that I made while I was in Korea. I met people from all around the world and significantly improved my language ability. Having spent a semester in Korea I'm even considering working there for a little while after I graduate. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Although I didn't give all of above the best ratings, but the overall experience was definitely worth the 5 star. I had the time of my life, not just learning language and culture, but also making friends and spending memorable times with them. It's an unique experience that you won't have at your home country. Imagine yourself ... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

Past Review
I had a lot of time to myself (on the bus/subway, between classes etc) to reflect about my experiences and simply take in the city and its people. The fact that the academic pressure was not so great, also allowed me to fill my free time as I likes, be it partying with friends, shopping at the fashion street, doing volunteering ... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
learned about korean culture and language. it was worthwhile, although a little expensive. - Villanova University View Entire Review
Absolutely. I feel more confident traveling on my own and functioning as an individual in a foreign setting. I am now much more interested in Asia in general than I was before, and am left with a strong desire to learn more Korean. - Truman State University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CIEE: Seoul - Arts and Sciences
Of course! I am still processing everything, so I don't really know what I have learned about myself through this experience yet, but I definitely now have a more in-depth understanding of Korean culture, Korean history, Korean politics, and just the psyche of the Korean people. I understand why the people do what they do or bel... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned a lot more about the Korean culture. I became more independent. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
It made me more confident about my future. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
