Student Reviews

How to achieve the best results in your universty studies / Life of a full-time international student in South Korea
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

I am in the second semester of my first year at Pusan National University. So far I had mixed feelings about my experience at the University. I am studying at a university abroad and this is the main reason why studying is more difficult for me than it is for domestic students. I had to adapt to the environment and culture around me and develop new life experience skills...
