안녕하세요! Greetings from Seoul, South Korea!
I’m currently enjoying the last weeks of my exchange study in Konkuk University.
The first time I arrived to Konkuk University was quite a shock because the size of Seoul’s universities is something totally different from the average Finnish ones. If you really wanted, you could spend your whole exchange period within the university campus.
A huge campus means also a lot of students so the competition from the courses is serious. Despite the promising looking list of courses I was able to get only two courses I wanted. Luckily, I got on the Korean language course which has been a great help in understanding the Korean way of life.
On my free time I’ve had a chance to travel around Seoul and see amazing places. The school has arranged few trips for the exchange students but otherwise I’ve have had many chances to travelled around Seoul with my new friends. One thing that makes Seoul interesting is that the city never sleeps. There is always something to do no matter what time of day it is.
This whole experience has taught me many things. Not only I have learnt and experienced the different culture of South-Korea but I have also started to appreciate my own county, culture and education in a whole new way.
