I spent 6 months at Keimyung some years ago. It is in the south (Daegu/Teagu), around 3 hours ride away from Seoul. What I enjoyed most of the stay was that international students were placed in an “English speaking house” and paired with a Korean room mate. I’m still friends with my room mate. The classes were not as difficult as at my home university. I still fondly remember a class in international communication. The teacher was very welcoming to the discussion international students created. He invited us also for a farewell dinner. I also had the chance to take courses such as Korean language (I think you for sure should do that), and Taekwondo (that was just for the fun). In all, the study load allowed for ample travel time and gave insights into a different culture I would not have gained while staying in the Netherlands.
The campus has everything you need to survive. My home university doesn’t have a campus so this was a new experience for me. Directly outside the university walls were many little shops and bars. The university had a curfew, but we – the group of 20 international students – ignored it.
Some aspects were very traditional for western students (no person of a different gender in your room, be back by 11pm). But these were just different experiences and helped me – as a young woman – to discover the values and norms I espouse to.
