Michelle - 2017

As cliché as it may seem, my participation in the International Summer Campus Program at Korea University was definitely life-changing.

The program was well structured to include many Korean cultural activities which I am extremely grateful for as I got to be more open-minded to culture as well as meet people who have complete different life experiences to me. I was exposed to an environment where I got to challenge myself on a daily basis as well as engage in knowledge sharing – two aspects that I wanted in a short-term experience.

Rupsha - 2018

My favourite aspect of studying overseas was being able to live independently, and meet new people on a regular basis. Furthermore, I loved being able to interact with the local students and culture and it really pushed me to learn a new language and learn about cultural sensitivities and adjust my behaviour.
