My time at Dongguk International Summer School left me very keen to travel to Asia again and return to Korea in particular someday. I only came across the summer school by chance browsing the University of Kent website - I think it's excellent that our institution has so many international partnerships which offer students opportunities like these. My trip to Korea was really exciting and rewarding from an academic and personal standpoint. I found that the intensive lessons struck a great balance with the various social and cultural excursions on offer, allowing plenty of chances to join in with guided trips as well as independent sight-seeing. I got to meet many great people, often going out to eat and drink with fellow students and some of the Dongguk buddies too. The atmosphere alone, being right in the central district of Seoul at the foot of Mt Namsan, is something I will always remember. I really think immersive experiences like this summer school are a wonderful way to challenge yourself and expand your horizons as a young person and as a student. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be culturally and politically engaged, or simply to have fun.
