Rebecca - 2017

Studying abroad at Korea University was an amazing experience! I had the opportunity to travel with my new friends and immerse myself in South Korea’s unique culture. My studies involved learning taekwondo and Korea’s mass media and popular culture – enhancing my knowledge academically and personally.

The International Winter Campus program held many extracurricular activities which included a cooking class, calligraphy lesson, ice skating, ski trip and a visit to the Lotte World Amusement Park. I also adventured outside of the program activities with my new friends to experience Korea’s rich culture and beautiful food. From travelling to renowned tourist attractions such as the Namsan Tower to rail biking through the beautiful countryside of South Korea, I truly gained the most memorable experience!

Maytinee - 2017

When undertaking any form of overseas exchange whether academic or professional, long term or short, the most valuable thing you can do is say ‘Hi’. From my own experience I have made the best friends by simply initiating conversation and being open. With just a greeting most people are happy to talk with you and through conversation you can learn more about them and their culture. At the end of the day, the worst thing that could possibly happen is that they do not say ‘Hello’ in return. So with that, go out and meet as many new people as you can and the entire experience will be much more rewarding.
