Difference of Korean college - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Yes. I learned a little more about the world and how people are all the same yet different because of cultures. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Studying in Seoul, ironically, made me thankful that I was not raised in such a society. I love being there as a foreigner, but would not choose to grow up having to conform to such rigid standards and expectations. I know that seems rather morbid to say, but beyond that I experienced a different type of education, met new peopl... - Brandeis University View Entire Review

By studying abroad, I learned Korean, made a lot of friends (both exchange and local), gained cultural information about living in a foreign country, and made memories that will last a lifetime! It was definitely worthwhile and I highly suggest studying abroad! - University of Hawaii - Manoa View Entire Review
The class was great, the professors were really nice. And also, it was great to know how Korean students study. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned a lot from the host institution students because their hard work and well-shaped studying ethnics impressed me. Also, there were many positive lessons to be learned from the Korean culture such as truly caring for your neighbors. I cannot describe in words how grateful I am to have this opportunity to study abroad in K... - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
It was a great opportunity to study and stay in home country for me as a student who has been studying in the U.S. for almost a decade. Academically, it was also satisfiable because courses offered in Yonsei are something I could not learn in American university. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was worthwhile because I could stay and efficiently study at the same time in my home country - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I really enjoyed being in another country, however, there was a huge culture difference. I took 4 classes and enjoyed only 2. Their system of teaching is still not up to date. The teacher and student relationship is still very traditional and there is a hierarchy. However, 2 of my classes was so interesting and interacted becaus... - Barnard College View Entire Review
Besides being able to take courses, I got to venture out and explore what the host country had to offer. I learned more cultural facts and has interested me more to study about the host country. - University of Hawaii - Manoa View Entire Review
I found that many times I was automatically judged based on where I was from. My experience made me realize how important it is to communicate and learn from people from other countries. It is important to see how other countries tackle their problems and how other countries view how the Unites States tackles its problems. This... - SUNY Purchase View Entire Review
Definitely! I got much better in Korean and learned much about its culture. It also was well programmed, which allowed me to take classes I need for my classes. - Baylor University View Entire Review
I gained alot of life qualities from this experience. It definitely made me more self-reliant since I was living in a foreign country alone. It made me feel much more independent thus contributing to my responsibilities. It also helped shape my personality to even a greater level in that now I can now alter my personality to all... - University of Hawaii - Manoa View Entire Review
The experience abroad was invaluable and irreplaceable for me. Even if I were to travel to Seoul again I don't think it would be the same. It may still be great, but not the same, so this was 100% worthwhile for me. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I experienced living in a major city as a student. It was definitely worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with Direct Enrollment: Seoul - Yonsei University
Because I took classes with Korean and International students, I was exposed to various perspectives and I was able to see the positive and negative aspects of multiple cultures. My experience helped encourage me to pursue a career abroad because I saw just how much we seek to learn from each other and sharing cultures. - University of Hawaii - Manoa View Entire Review
Yes, I would be interested in possibly moving to Korea sometime. - Barnard College View Entire Review
I think it was a good experience. I did the long distance relationship thing which then fell apart when I got back so that kind of casts a negative light on a lot of things, but my experiences there were very fun and interesting most of the time. - Trinity University View Entire Review
