About the Program

Korea University (KU) was established in 1905 as a burgeoning institution of higher education, infused with the spirit of rising nationalism,  KU is located on the outskirts of the capital city of Seoul, a city that is the second largest metropolitan area in the world with 25 million people, it has one of the strongest urban economies and is known as one of the most “wired” cities in the world.  KU is a globally-focused, research-driven university that has several partnerships with Western universities and offers many courses in English.

"I doubt I could settle with a most memorable experience - every experience I had was unique and worth treasuring. I would probably pick one of the weekly noraebang sessions I had with the international friends I made in Seoul, where we would sing until 5am in the morning and then go for cheese ramen at a small kimbab shop along the street." - Chin Yi , Fall 2012

Spring 2017 Participant
I had a great time with this program. The culture is great. The program sets students up in a great position to experience Korea and make friends with Koreans and other foreigners alike.

Ethan James Vantilburg, Spring 2017 Participant
I had an amazing time in South Korea. The only thing I really recommend doing is to not only hang out with the other exchange students. Get out of your comfort zone and make some friends who are not in the same situation as you. Do something you are passionite about there and you are bound to find others with the same hobbies as you. I joined the school's club volleyball team while I was there and it was the best decision that I have made. My best memories in Korea was with the people on that team.

The opportunity to live in Seoul for four months gave me a lot of important things, including friends from all over the world, chances to explore a different culture, and a broadening of my appreciation and respect for another culture. I was given the chance to observe and understand how different people from varying backgrounds think and react, and it made me a lot more culturally sensitive, as well as allowed me the chance to appreciate our cultural similarities.
