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 this program was meeting new people through the KUBA and Language Exchange programs at Korea University. I had such an amazing time going out to eat, going dancing, practicing Korean, and exploring different parts of Seoul with my Korean buddies. I have made so many incredible memories with people from not just Korea, but all around the world too.

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.
