Hazara Leon, Academic Year 2015 Participant
That you should make sure there are enough classes offered in order to fulfill your course plan. Sometimes classes are dropped and I met many people who had no backup courses and were only left with 3 credits. I would also say that if you plan to stay for a year staying at a share house/hostel is a good idea in order to save money. They offer free facilities and food and most are located very close to the university. In addition, I would say it's best if you participate as much as you can. Since there are so many people in Korea and lots of things to do you won't find out unless you make many friends or are well informed.

My favorite part of the program was a student organization that was offered for every single exchange student to be a part of called KUBA. KUBA stands for Korea University Buddy Assistants and it is made up of over 100 Korean students and 800 exchange students. Every single exchange student is placed into one of the 8 groups and is partnered with one Korean student as their "buddy". This group meets for weekly lunches and dinners, and weekend activities. This group really helped me make friends, get involved in both campus and our city, and experience Korean culture.

The exchange student program called KUBA at Korea University was my most rewarding experience while abroad. Making friendships with other exchange students and Korean students helps in feeling like your at home while abroad. Unfortunately, if you are trying to improve your Korean, your Korean KUBA buddies will not help much. But it is rewarding to know that you are helping them to practice their English. Making the lasting friendships that you do when you are abroad was the most rewarding aspect because I know that they will be lasting.
