Come to HUFS, see the world

I was a visiting student at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies in Seoul, Korea, and now I am a full time student at the same school, all with the help of Asia Exchange!! Honestly, if it weren’t for Asia Exchange, I wouldn’t be in Asia at all, because I would have no idea where to start with the process. I got super lucky in finding AE, as they guided me through everything, and basically only required me to fill out their small application and send some forms, the rest they handled directly with the school. I probably sent 100 emails the first month of knowing about Asia Exchange, from asking questions about the visa process, to the school cafeteria, and they had absolutely no judgements and answered everything they could. I’m so glad that I used AE too since all the AE students connected and met up on day one. I formed fast friendships in Seoul because of it. 😊 Asia Exchange is a lifesaver and if you’re apprehensive or nervous at all about studying abroad, having such a supportive exchange program behind you helps so much!!!

And if you’re nervous at all about studying abroad, don’t be. 😊 My experience at HUFS and in Seoul has been life-changing and has changed my entire perspective on the world. Seoul is the most beautiful city and being able to experience it on a local level has been the best experience we could have asked for. HUFS is so incredibly nice to their international students, including having an entire International Students Organization where they allow you to meet Korean students, travel around the city with them, or other things such as language exchange. I don’t think I’ve been bored a single time since moving to Seoul. 😊 As the school says, Come to HUFS, See the World!

Come to HUFS - Meet the World

I can assure you that once you experienced the vibrant life the city of Seoul as to offer you never want to leave this place again. South Korea and Seoul in general is the perfect mixture of modern lifestyle combined with a variety of cultural traditions. No matter if you spend the day or night in Gangnam, Itaewon or Hongdae, you will have the time of your life.
The semester at HUFS offered so many new insights into different subjects and enabled me to exchange ideas with students from all over the world. I became friends with so many of them and I am now able to look differently at a world map, because I have friends in every single part of it.
The support from Asia Exchange was always helpful in any case and although we were the first batch of students attending a semester at HUFS for Asia Exchange everything ran so smoothly. From the beginning of the application process, during and after the semester, Asia Exchange was always there to help.

I would recommend the semester abroad at HUFS for everyone and would always do it again immediately.

HUFS is the perfect please to make life changing experiences

From the very first day, HUFS was a hotspot of fun, experience and development. HUFS is a mixture of very diligent and goal-oriented students, numerous fun activities and a the exchange of culture and language. During the days there are countless challenging yet enriching classes offered, the nights are filled with meet-ups, clubs and festivals. The campus is cozy and beautiful and offers a lot of options to chill or do group work. Both personal and academically, this is an excellent spot to grow because anything pretty much anything is possible over here - except for boredom. Outside of the campus, Seoul is a city full of entertainment, culture and joy. After one or two semesters at HUFS, I am pretty sure you do not want to leave anymore.
