Korea University (KU), founded in 1905, is one of South Korea’s oldest and most prominent universities. The university is part of the SKY trio, an acronym used to refer to the nation’s three most renowned universities (Seoul National, Korea University and Yonsei University).
To any international students thinking about applying, what stands out about Korea University is the abundance of subjects taught in English. They have a respectable amount of courses catered to foreigners. From language and culture to business, sociology, law, politics, humanities, science, and many more. Every year, the university holds an international summer and winter program and accepts students from all across the world.
So that you always have something to do on the weekends, Korea University provides students with cultural activities through their KU Buddy System. Some activities include Baseball (I’m going to this on Friday so I might upload a few photos in part #2 of my Korea University posts), Taekwondo, K-pop dance lessons (how many Koreaboos out there reading this right now?), trips to Lotte World, and Korean cooking classes.
For anyone studying at University of Technology Sydney (UTS), I’ve applied for this program through UTS BUiLD. They offer scholarships to ease with travel and study expenses. Depending on the duration of the course, the scholarship offers students studying abroad $500 to $1000 and provides students with travel insurance. For more information, check out their Facebook page and their website.
