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.

Living in Seoul was a blast. The Korean people are so welcoming to foreigners. I loved the cultural aspect of living in Seoul. The city is huge and full of tall skyscrapers but at the same time the people are so traditional.I loved the food and the karaoke part of Seoul the most. I also loved the social scene in Korea. There are several swanky clubs that are fun to go to as well as a ton of bars that you will frequent.

I absolutely loved everything about this program. Being completely immersed in a new culture was life changing.
