A student studying abroad with Korea University: Seoul - International Summer Campus
November 02, 2017 The Only Summer I Need.
The knowledge I gained, the friendships I forged and the experience to feel like a local student, what more can I ask for? I have grown to be more comfortable in speaking Korean, exchanging conversations with local cab drivers and friendly ahjummas. - University of Wollongong View Entire Review
Korea University gave a good outlook on what life would have been like if I studied at a university in a different country. I learned a lot and met many new people who made my experience great. - University of Toronto View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Korea University: Seoul - International Summer Campus
I learned how to thrive in a foreign country and gained the ability to use my resources when things may not be easy. Especially since there was a language barrier, I think it was really important to get accustomed quickly in order to communicate with locals. - University of Minnesota - Twin Cities View Entire Review
Since I am Korean student studying in Hong Kong, it is a great experience to be back at my home country and studying in my home country. - Chinese University of Hong Kong / CUHK View Entire Review
I learned that even though we might come from different cultures and background we can still have things in common. I gained many new friends and experiences that have impacted my life in a positive manner! This experience was definitely worth my while and I would do it all over again if I could! - Texas A&M International University View Entire Review

Because of this magnificent school and program, I was able to appreciate more of my culture, increase my communication skills, and become independent. My first ever experience studying abroad was very worthwhile, and I will always choose to go back to Korea University. - College of San Mateo View Entire Review
Language, culture, experience - University of Hong Kong View Entire Review

October 26, 2017 Best Summer Of My Life
I think besides learning more about Korea, one of my biggest takeaways is what I learned about myself. I found that I was capable of travelling on my own, planning itineraries, finding my way around a country I had only been to once before. I even had a good experience speaking to locals - once, I had an ahjumma kindly ask me to... - National University of Singapore / NUS View Entire Review
Independence, learning more about myself. I have also made many new international friends from around the world. Definitely worth the while - Singapore Management University View Entire Review

October 24, 2017 Summer In Korea!
I learned how to navigate public transportation on my own and I got to practice Korean that I learned in class while hanging out around Seoul and exploring. I got comfortable in Anam and was sad to leave when the program was over. It is 100% worthwhile to go but I would recommend buying an electric handfan as soon as possible fo... - University of North Carolina - Wilmington View Entire Review

I learned so much about Korean politics and political science in general. It was through such great professors and classes that I decided to make my political science minor into a major. The program set up and its intention of allowing its students to fully enjoy Seoul and make friends was very much worthwhile. - Seattle Pacific University View Entire Review
November 02, 2017 Transformative!
I learned a lot about myself and it forced me to be very independent. I met so many people from the country and also international students from all parts of the world. I gained so much experience by being around people that live very different lives to me. I also want to revisit Korea because there's so much more to see, and th... - University of Nottingham View Entire Review

I learnt so many things. Some of the lessons I will hold most dear to my heart are the kindness of people who want you to like their own country; the confidence to meet knew people and make amazing memories; and the solidarity you can feel with a people that, at face value, seem so different from yourself. - University of Toronto View Entire Review
This may be cliche, but I learnt how to be independent. My Korean language proficiency was poor, I didn't know anyone, and I haven't been to Korean before. It was daunting (I almost backed out after I reached Incheon airport haha) but I'm glad I pulled through. Another thing I gained was friendship. Maintaining long-distance fri... - National University of Singapore / NUS View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Korea University: Seoul - International Summer Campus
I had the opportunity to make, hopefully, lifelong friends with people with whom i thought I had nothing in common with. And I also met some not so amazing people, but they all gave me incredible experiences that i wouldn't change for anything. They all taught me so many things about the world and about myself and that is pricel... - Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico View Entire Review
100% worth it because I met a lot of people from Seoul that I am in contact with still and I realized that my Korean is actually good and almost fluent. I also improved my Korean dramatically with classes offered by the program and got to experience living in Seoul. Moreover, I got to experience the amazing public transportation... - Cabrini University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Korea University: Seoul - International Summer Campus
I learned so much from the people I met, the courses I took, the places I went, and the experiences I had. I grew so much, and now have more confidence in my abilities to be an independent, adventurous person, even when taking large leaps outside of my comfort zone. This experience was worth every penny and every minute I spent ... - Vanderbilt University View Entire Review
Being able to live independently, especially in a foreign country. It will definitely help to develop yourself even further to be a more well-rounded person. - Nanyang Technological University View Entire Review

Learnt that traveling half way around the world isn't as hard as I assumed , it was very worthwhile as I never wanted to leave , it really impacted my life greatly, as it has made me want to do a year abroad in Asia next year - University of Leeds View Entire Review
I gained not only a beginner's working knowledge of Korean, but also an insight into Korean culture and an idea of how America is viewed in Korea. I also discovered two new favorite foods in the restaurants of Anam! This program was indescribably worthwhile for me, both as a student and as an American citizen. - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review
I learnt a lot for the exchange experience. I joined the four weeks program in Korea University which is one of the best university in Korea and its international summer campus is even one of the best in Asia. It was a definitely fruitful experience for me. First, the high quality lectures enhanced our knowledge and skills. We ... - Chinese University of Hong Kong / CUHK View Entire Review

October 24, 2017 I Wanna Do It Again!
Don't be shy and lazy, you can not feel the real culture until you experience it by yourselves. It is worthwhile and as a memo during my whole life. - University of Leeds View Entire Review
There was a lecture that I attended held by the president, Jaeho Yeom The topic is KU & Innovation in Fostering Global Education. Overall, the whole speech mainly focuses on how education should reform in order to keep up with the global change and what KU will do to improve its education in the future. The speech was divi... - Hong Kong University of Science and Technology View Entire Review
