"The months in Korea were certainly some of the best in my life"

The months in Korea were certainly some of the best in my life. In between a vivid nightlife, extraordinary food, deep conversations, a great number of wonderful friends from different cultures, a very special football club and the exchange life itself – this is what shaped me most within the last few months.

“I love the atmosphere of my new home”

The smell of cotton candy is laying in the air paired with laughter. It’s the first day of school at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies and the college clubs try to recruit new members. I love the atmosphere of my new home; busy students walking around, the smell of the metropolis and the excitement about something new that’s laying in front of me.

“Going abroad has opened up my eyes”

Korea and HUFS was a culturally enriching experience that gave me profound insights on many new things. I established friendships that will hopefully last for a lifetime and I felt like I really infiltrated the Korean culture – I got into it. I’m extremely grateful for the entire experience. Going abroad has opened up my eyes and allowed me to see that there is another world out there besides the world I live in. I have put to rest my prenotions. I cannot wait to travel to back to Korea and experience new things and meet more people.

Svante, Germany (

“As an older student (27) I was worried I’d have hard time making friends, but I met so many people of my age and older among the other students. It was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve had so far, so much that I’ll be going back for a second semester soon! Please email me any questions you have, I’d love to help you out!”
