Yes, the language program is great and there were plenty of excellent activities. - Peking University View Entire Review
December 05, 2018 The Best Summer
I learned a lot about how to be independent and grew a lot more as a person then I was expecting to before going. The classes also forced you to practice speaking in Korean as much as possible and you become more confident in your speaking and less worried about making mistakes very quickly that transfer over to life in Seoul ma... - University of Western Ontario View Entire Review
I definitely improved my language ability from just living in Korea and constantly speaking the language. Despite not attending any language classes, I was able to make good use of the Korean language by going out of my comfort zone to talk to local students in Korean. - Singapore Management University View Entire Review

I definitely feel that this experience was worthwile. My Korean improved immensely, I met so many new great friends, and I learned how to live independently. I also got exposed to a different country and everything that comes with that. - University of Toronto View Entire Review
My Korean skills elevated a lot after the program. I got to know my buddy through the buddy program and she taught me Korean. Both my speaking and writing skills have improved a lot when compared to the time before I joined this program. Moreover, through the well-organised course and interesting cultural activities, I understoo... - Hong Kong Polytechnic University View Entire Review

November 29, 2018 A Time Worth Spent!
I attended KU ISC 6-weeks program in 2018 and it was one of the best ways to spend my summer! KU is so adamant about cultural diversity in their program. This gave me a chance to not only met locals who attend Korea University, but to also communicate with other student from all over the world. KU faculty and staff were very hel... - Mississippi State University View Entire Review

November 28, 2018 Wish I Stayed Longer
I made the most amazing friends during my experience at KU that I still keep in contact with on a daily basis. Being able to live in Korea is great, especially as an undergraduate student. The bars are cheap, the food is delicious, there is culture every where, the streets are safe, and there's an abundance of night life. Korea ... - University of Hawaii - Manoa View Entire Review
From the program, I learned that you could have fun even though when studying can be stressful sometimes. Also, as a student who took General Chemistry in the ISC course, I gained a lot of knowledge from it and now when I'm taking my chemistry class, I'm acing it! - Michigan State University View Entire Review

November 28, 2018 A Seoul Ful Journey
I learned so much about myself, the country of Korea and being abroad in general. It's definitely worthwhile! I encourage anyone who is thinking about going abroad, to go!! It's an experience like not other! I learned a new language, a new palette for food, and so much more! - University of Louisville View Entire Review
It's my first time to join an exchange program, and I have longed for going to Korea because of its culture. Joining KUISC is definitely a right choice because I am able to meet so many friends, both international and local. We always made great memories when we hanged out together. Besides, the courses I took offer me some know... - Chinese University of Hong Kong / CUHK View Entire Review
November 27, 2018 A Summer I Won't Forget
I learnt so much, not just in class, but about myself, countries where my friends were from, and Korea. - University of Technology - Sydney / UTS View Entire Review
November 27, 2018 Best Summer Ever.
It was definitely worthwhile. I learned a lot about Korean culture and how different things are in South Korea compared to the US. It was crazy to me that restaurants in South Korea could only have a single item on the menu and still be doing well. - University of Nebraska - Lincoln View Entire Review
Living abroad alone without your family is definitely a hard choice, but it made me become more independent, in terms of individually and also financially. I had always wanted to try studying abroad, so I would get a sense of independence. - University at Buffalo - SUNY View Entire Review

It was the first time for me to go abroad and I even do not have any friend to accompany with. However, I practiced a lot during this period. I still can remember how many troubles I had which caused by insufficient preparation such as forgetting to activate credit card and opening the service of international calling. Fortunate... - University of Nottingham Ningbo View Entire Review
I have gained a multitude of friends from across the world. I learned how to interact with people from outside of my country. Not only did I meet native Koreans, I also met people from the US, England, Singapore, and so many other countries. KU offers the best and does not disappoint. - Concordia University - Wisconsin View Entire Review

I got to learn about another country and their culture while having a lot of fun at the same time. - Mississippi State University View Entire Review
I learned how to become more independent! I think it helped me grow as a person and it was the push I never knew I needed. Especially now, as I am about to graduate in a few months, I see myself in a new light, one that I think is truly going to help me succeed in my future.

I gained so much from this experience. I gained friends, knowledge, and memories, which I love to reflect on again and again. It was absolutely worthwhile in every way possible. I am going again this summer. I can't wait! View Entire Review

I improve my Korean so much! After 4 weeks of studying Korean properly, I can already sing in Korean very well whenever I went to karaoke room in Korea! I can even chat with uncles/aunties on subway and talk to cashier in convenience shop. I used to study Korean on my own for a year, I thought I know enough, but I was wrong. ... - University of Glasgow View Entire Review

November 28, 2018 Unforgettable Experience!
I improved my speaking skills and was able to learn a little more about the culture. I learned so many things in such a short period of time. I grew to love Korea even more than before. - California State University - Long Beach View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Korea University: Seoul - International Summer Campus
I know more about Korea culture, the food culture, how the buildings look like, how the cities look like, how the people live in Korea, what people eat in Korea etc. It feels vivid and satisfying to really get yourself into the place to enjoy what it has. Also, I know more about myself. I become more independent and willing to ... - Hong Kong University of Science and Technology View Entire Review
I'm not open to trying new things, and it really has opened my eyes to the world around me. Though I am still hesitant to talk to strangers, I am much less so. Smiling goes a long way. The program all in itself is the highlight of my year, and I think about it constantly. I can't wait to go back to Korea soon! - SUNY - Binghamton View Entire Review
