Overall Experience
I learned how different cultures can be and how to act a certain way. Yes, the culture clash is something one must experience oneself to fully enjoy. - Xavier University of Louisiana View Entire Review
Yes, it was worthwhile. Learned the culture of Koreans. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself. I learned to put myself out there and go out of comfort zone. 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
Communicating with local people was great experience. I got to travel to many places by myself. Meeting with other international students from other parts of the world and experiencing their cultures and languages were good too. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I loved all the friends I made, and will cherish the memories forever. The time spent there went by so fast, and I wish I could do it again. - Harvard University View Entire Review

I am definitely more aware of the world outside of the U.S. Other countries have so much to offer but they are also going through a lot of issues and concerns just as we are in America. I am interested in studying abroad some more in the future, possibly in Vietnam or Germany. - University of Hawaii - Manoa View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Direct Enrollment: Seoul - Seoul National University
I really enjoyed being in a foreign country and constantly learning something new everyday. After being placed in this situation, I feel more confident in going out and doing something on my own. Unfortunately, I felt like the semester wasn't enough, so I'm planning on returning to teach English after graduation. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Direct Enrollment: Seoul - Seoul National University
My mom wanted me to come back to Korea for a semester because she wanted me to be set with my future plan after graduating from college. She wanted me to be set on the place I would like to stay and have a job. I learned that during 8 years of studying in the United States, I changed much, and I feel much more fit in the Ameri... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was worthwhile over all and changed my entire perspective on Asia especially on South Korea. View Entire Review
Past Review
Like I said earlier, the program was a disappointment but traveling to Korea was an eye opening experience for me. I learned much about my own heritage but also about how the rest of the world views Americans. I learned much from my peers, including the Korean and international students, and I was able to leave my comfort zone. ... - University of Hawaii - Manoa View Entire Review

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

More options and perspectives to consider for the future. It was worthwhile. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
100% worthwhile! I learned a lot about other countries and become more aware of what is happening around the world! - 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
yes it was worthwhile because I got to make native friends and take lectures in korean - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I strongly recommend this program to anyone considering to study abroad in Korea. I just decided to do this exchange because I was going to Korea anyways, but this experience went way beyond my expectation. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
My experience abroad is one I will NEVER forget. If I could do it again I have no doubt I would. The only thing I may change is going to a different university that is closer to the nightlife areas, but other than that, I am in LOVE with Seoul! I have been so happy with my experience abroad that I am already considering anoth... - University of Hawaii - Manoa View Entire Review

I have learned numerous things from my friends, not from my classes. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Though I live in Korea, it was fascinating to meet college students. It was a chance to observe their perspective on society, life, and culture. They were understanding and accepting, and I felt welcomed. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Snu: Home Abroad
My experience at SNU was definitely a worthwhile one. I learned a lot, not only from the classroom but also from SNU students, professors, and many others I met in around Seoul. Studying at SNU changed some perceptions I had about Korea, while enabling me thnk about my cultural identity as well. Rigorous academic setting also ch... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Yes, it was totally worthwhile. I think I learned a lot more about myself and my parents' culture and it made me thankful to have had such great opportunities in the States. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
