Student Reviews (Summer 2015 Internship in Korea)

I had the best summer as an intern at Tongmyong University. I got to improve my Korean language skills, meet and make many Korean friends, and make really good friendships with other University of Georgia students.

Jacob (Senior, Physics)
The internship allowed me to meet new people from different countries. Busan is a great city to live in. Both its beaches and food are amazing.

Ariel (Junior, World Language Education)
I thought that this internship was an amazing new experience. I would do this internship again in a heartbeat.

Asad (Alumni, International Affairs)
Overall, I enjoyed the experience. The dorm, the food, and the homestay were all excellent, and I especially appreciated that the faculty and staff consistently went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable.
