May 12, 2023 3rd Times A Charm
This was my 3rd time in Korea and my longest time and I learned a lot about myself. I definitely gained a deeper sense of independence and learned how to better handle my mental and emotional health. I also learned that I am able to keep up in classes with local students, even though participating in class discussions was a bit ... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Going from a space where I'm inherently viewed as 'other' to one where I look and am treated no different from your standard Korean citizen was such a mind-boggling experience. On the one hand, my ethnic background allows me to uniquely access Korean culture and be supported through my time here in ways I am almost positive othe... - Wellesley College View Entire Review

I started feeling comfortable living in Korea and using Korean on a daily basis became natural. My speaking ability improved drastically by just talking with people a lot, without much language study. I explored a lot of places and had a lot of fun, and also got to experience some Korean work culture through my internship. I thi... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Go To Snu!
Studying at SNU was definitely worthwhile. The classes were similar with my classes back home, but slightly easier because they were catered towards international students. In retrospect, what I gained the most was life experience and good friends. I also learned quite a lot of Korean in such a short amount of time. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Seoul National University: Seoul - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
I got to really learn first hand about my cultural heritage by speaking with friends and family that lived in Korea. I was able to gain insight to living conditions and how drastically different Korean American culture is to Korean culture. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

Delving into other countries is great fun. Definitely worthwhile. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
The local students at Seoul National University are known to be very very hard workers which made my classes quite challenging. However, it was very fascinating to see and learn how eager they are to learn and also manage to have social life as well. There are so many things you could learn from the local students. Also, they h... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

Past Review Unforgettable
I learned a lot about different cultures from Korean culture to the EU due to other foreign exchange students. Gained a lot of knowledge and experience from this time abroad and it was definitely worthwhile. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

Past Review Snu Exchange
The best thing I got out of my study abroad experience was really gaining another perspective. Because all of the classes I took were taught in English, the classes were composed of mostly international students. One of my classes was a weekly three-hour discussion about global issues and ethical thinking. Until now, I have o... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned that we (people from all over the world) think the same. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
The experience I gained from SNU was absolutely worthwhile and unforgettable. How hard local students work in school and in social life gave me so much motivation and new lessons. I plan to keep in touch with the local and international friends I made on exchange and to continue this exchange life. Although it was only for a few... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
