I’m studying at Seoul National University of Science and Technology. In Finland I study Business Information Systems, and my department here is Computer Science. I have programming, business and design courses here at SeoulTech. I have really enjoyed my exchange in Korea.
My everyday life here has been great. Seoul is beautiful and full of life, people here
are kind and I have made many local friends. On my free time I like to explore the city, spend time with my friends, and eat good Korean food. I have also visited other cities: Busan, Jeonju and Jeju Island.
Compared to Finland, I think studying here is a bit more difficult and time-consuming, teachers are more demanding and the pace of studying is faster. However, I feel like teachers are more understanding towards exchange students, because they know that we are here for a short time and we want to enjoy our stay and experience as much as possible. So thankfully I have had a lot of free time along with studies.
For everyone who is thinking of going for an exchange, wether in South Korea or anywhere else, here is my advise: do it!! It’s totally worth it.
