A student studying abroad with Korea University: Seoul - International Summer Campus
Studying at KU was an undeniably worthwhile and memorable experience. I was able to make friends from all over the world, learn about different cultures, explore Korea, and learn from professors from extremely prestigious universities.

A student studying abroad with Korea University: Seoul - International Summer Campus
I learnt how to live independently and to support myself. Financial management and daily decision making. It makes me more confident and not to rely on others more. Also, it is a great opportunity for me to experience living outside of Singapore which is such a small city. It gives me a chance to explore what is outside and also... - National University of Singapore / NUS View Entire Review
My study abroad experience was well worthwhile, I was able to learn more about the culture of Korea and as well as the Korean language. I feel the most important thing I learned was that I shouldn't hold back on anything and because of that, I have become more confident in myself than I ever was before. - CUNY - Queens College View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with Korea University: Seoul - International Summer Campus
I have learnt to adapt to living in a country where I did not know the language, but grew to love all its people, culture and food during the program. I remembered when I first came to Korea, I struggled to ask for directions, or even to order food from restaurants where there were no English menus. But with all the support give... - National University of Singapore / NUS View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with Korea University: Seoul - International Summer Campus
I went to Korea alone, with much apprehension, and not knowing if I would enjoy my time there. Now that I've gone through it, I thought, why did I even worry?

December 05, 2018 Life Changing Experience!
KU ISC taught me not just to be a more open-minded person, but also more open with myself.
