Overall Experience
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

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
I gained many new experiences and skills that school and daily life would not be able to provide. Skills such as being able to adapt easily to another culture, and being independent are necessary if I want to live overseas in the future. Experiences including playing with school teams, living and traveling with friends would not... - Singapore Management University View Entire Review

October 23, 2017 Take Me Back To Kuisc
I gained from this experience not only new knowledge from the classes I took but memories that I will treasure for the rest of my life. It was my first experience studying abroad, so it was challenging for me to take classes fully in english and korean. I would have probably regret if I didn't take this program, so it was comple... - Universidad de Costa Rica / University of Costa Rica View Entire Review
I gained a lot of confidence and independence because I had never travelled such a large distance alone before. I learned a lot about Korean history and culture and I feel like my command of the language improved while I was there. It was totally worth it because I got a once in a lifetime experience! - University of Toronto View Entire Review

I entered the program with many self doubts, but as the days passed I begun to realize my own strengths. I believe now that there is nothing in this world that I cannot do if I put my mind to it. - University of Texas - El Paso / UTEP View Entire Review

October 23, 2017 Best $5,495 I Spent
Overall, I learned a whole lot of Korean. while I might not have made a Korean friend, I did make three or four American friends I keep in touch with. The entire experience is well worth the money. I no longer fear public transportation in any way and feel more comfortable in foreign surroundings. - Governors State University View Entire Review
Social skills, definitely. Learning to interact with international and local students is a skill that must be picked up, especially since many of us take it for granted that the local students are supposed to mix with us. No, we are here on exchange and we should be the one stepping out of our comfort zones to mingle with them. ... - National University of Singapore / NUS View Entire Review
I got to study courses that my university didn't offer, and meet people that I would have never met otherwise, and was able to live in Korea - which is the best country. - The University of Queensland View Entire Review

October 23, 2017 A Summer To Remember!
Ever since I was 12 I have been living and studying overseas, so it wasn't my first time going abroad. However it was my first time going to a country in East Asia, and going by myself. For a few years I have been interested in Korea; it started with the music, progressed into media (tv and film) and then the fashion (which is m... - Polimoda International Institute of Fashion Design & Marketing View Entire Review

October 23, 2017 Kuisc 2017 Review!
I think most importantly on my trip, I gained confidence in my language speaking skills. Having to use the taxi and order at restaurants forced me to develop my use of the language and speak more instead of letting my fear get the best of me. - University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee View Entire Review
I learned a lot more about Seoul, how the subway worked, what each suburb is like in Seoul and the food standards as opposed to Korean food in Sydney. I've also discovered that intestines and chicken feet are great on Korean BBQ's! - The University of New South Wales 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
A student studying abroad with Korea University: Seoul - International Summer Campus
While abroad I learned many new things: how to make friends, how to balance classes and fun activities, and how to socialize with people more. As I took beginning Korean the semester before going to Korea, I was able to have simple conversations. It helped my friends and me when we went out to eat or made our ways around Myeongd... - George Washington University View Entire Review

I learned that even with the many cultural differences we're all just people trying to make the best of their lives. Honestly, to experience the cultures is just amazing and it's really important in today's society. It was definitely worthwhile. I got to see life in Seoul and Busan which is the same yet different at the same tim... - University of Texas - El Paso / UTEP View Entire Review

I gained new knowledge from the courses I took, but also learned more about myself and people from all walks of life! Being from a small rural town in Ontario, Canada, I always want to learn more about the world and other people's experiences. This program allowed me to meet and make friends with people from all different places... - University of Toronto View Entire Review
It was amazing being able to immerse myself in a culture different from my own and be able to gain new perspectives in life by doing so. Korea University's Buddy program made it easy to befriend local students and as result of it I was able to make long lasting friends that I continue to keep in touch with. Overall it was a gre... - CUNY - Queens College View Entire Review
I learned to live with other people, I learned how to be self sufficient and independent and I just loved having the freedom that I did. Yes, it was completely worthwhile. - Ateneo de Manila University View Entire Review

It provided me with new perspectives, learning what it was like to live abroad for an extended period of time and getting to do what the locals do rather than just visiting touristy attractions. It was extremely worthwhile and I look forward to having the chance to go back one day! - National University of Singapore / NUS View Entire Review

It was never enough to just listen to stories about how a country and her people and culture are. Being there to experience it yourself allows you to view it through your own lenses.While travelling, I got to see amazing sights that I won’t back home. It was definitely worthwhile. - National University of Singapore / NUS View Entire Review
