Getting Global Exposure at Hanyang International Summer School

Getting Global Exposure at Hanyang International Summer School

Three Industrial Engineering students (Atika Emma, Nafisha Herma, and Tara Aldiera) of Telkom University International Class joined the summer school program in Hanyang University, South Korea for 1 month. They did a summer program in Hanyang University Korea. They had such a good experience during their stay.

After they finished the program, they are required to create report in the form of poster and video.  The experience and knowledge they get will be passed through their juniors who want to step the similar path to go global. Here are some of their sharing :
1. The city

We stay in the capital city of South korea, Seoul. The city itself is a very busy city that similar with Jakarta. But they really have a strict rules such as you have to cross by the zebra cross, and also about the recycled that we have to divide the garbish based on their types. That kind of rules is not usual in Indonesia but we have to admit that they are a really good rules. Also the transportation in Seoul is very easy that you dont have to concern of getting lost. All the instruction are easy to read and they are mostly in english. Bus and Subway are the easiest. We just need a T-money and we can go anywhere in Seoul. Also the bus stop and station are very near to the popular area or tourist attractions such as Myeongdong, Namdaemun and so on.
2. The university

Hanyang University is one of the leading private research universities of South Korea, especially in the field of engineering. The main campus is in Seoul, and its branch, the Education Research Industry Cluster at Ansan, or ERICA campus, is located in Ansan. Hanyang University enrolls over 2,000 foreign students each year and more than 3,000 students study abroad annually, and counts its 647 partner universities in 68 countries.

3. Classes

We took consumer behaviour and korean language 1 class. The classes are filled with students from many country such as Singapore, French, Netherldand, Rusia, Kazakhstan, and also US. The people there were very friendly so its easy to making friends. They also appreciate everything that you do even if you have a broken english, they will help you as much as they can. The teacher also very nice and helpful, they will appreciate all you effort and the most important thing is you have to come to the class you choose because Hanyang considering your attendance for graduation.
4. Activities

Hanyang provide many activites that we can join. They are Nanta Performances. SM Town experience, Mud Festival, Cruise Ship, Everland and Carribean Bay. The activites were really meaningful for us because we can experience many places for free and it was really fun.
5. Living

The living cost is standard but it is quite high for meals (7000 – 10,000 krw/meal). We stayed in Dongdaemun which is near from the Campus and we rented it from Airbnb. The reason we choose Airbnb instead of student residence is it is more comfortable and the price is also similar (idr 7 millions per month).
6. Visa

It is quite easy for the Visa, because ICAO will help to collect the visa document. And we can received the visa with just one week after the application.
