Singaporean student who attended Yonsei University (Underwood International College) from Fall 2011 – Spring 2015. Currently pursuing my M.A. in the U.S.
I started this blog because I faced quite a bit of problems throughout my application and admission process, so I thought that I would let other students have somewhere to turn to if they need the same help as I had needed. And I was also hoping that I can find some other Singaporeans schooling in Korea! I hope that through this blog you will be able to understand what you’re getting yourself into when you come to Korea for your studies, and I also hope to reassure some of you about studying in Korea or just studying abroad in general (as I had really needed when I first came).
I’ve been receiving quite a few people hoping that I can email them to talk about applications and stuff, so I decided to just put my email address here. You can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about admissions and applications or just about Korea in general. I’ll try to help as much as I can ^^
But I also wish to clarify that before you email, please check out the university websites etc first. I try to give advice and relate my experience, but some information such as university majors, actual application procedures, even language of instruction can be found on the university website, and the information there is definitely more reliable especially if it’s not Yonsei since I’m not as familiar with other schools. I would also really appreciate it if questions can be a bit more specific than “I want to study in Korea, what school should I go?” Because I really can’t help you much if I don’t have more information about your interests etc. This would make it a lot more efficient for the both of us – you can get the information you really need from someone who is here in Korea (don’t waste your time asking me things that can be found on school websites, which is a much more credible source. especially since I usually take a long time to reply and I don’t want you to waste time waiting for my reply on something you can get information from on official websites ><) and I have more time to answer more questions of others seeking advice (plus for my own schoolwork too). I love to help others but let’s make this a more efficient and productive process for everyone! Thank you~^^
Lastly, I will still continue to give advice via email and comments as much as I can but I will probably take a long time to get back. I highly recommend for you to look under FAQ to see if your questions can be answered from there, and also to check out Useful Links to find other bloggers who will be able to get back to you more quickly!
