"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." Antonia, Germany

"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" Niklas, Germany.

The campuses do not only offer lecture halls and offices, since special care has been taken to ensure that all students' basic needs are satisfied. Just for example, there are supermarkets, sports facilities, restaurants, cafeterias, and banks on campus and right next to it. The student dormitories are accordingly located either on campus or just a minute away by foot.
