We spoke with DT228 student Daragh Browne about his recent study exchange experience at Kyungpook National University in Daegu South Korea

 

1. What attracted you to the KEDDIT/Korean study abroad program?
-------------
I saw this as a once in a lifetime opportunity that I could not pass up on. I knew it would be a chance to make a lot of international friends and expand my network. I wanted to see how my course subjects would be taught in a different college and in a different part of the world. I was attracted to Korea in particular as it is so culturally different from Ireland.

2. What was the best thing about the Korean study abroad program?
-------------
I got to meet so many international students and make new friends. Living on campus gave me the full campus life experience, which I loved! Daegu was a great springboard allowing me to be able to travel to other places - I travelled all around Korea and also visited Japan.

3. What was it like living in Daegu and Korea? 
-------------
There was definitely a culture shock - especially if you haven't been to Asia before (which I hadn't!). The best way to tackle this is to try everything and make friends with Koreans. The cost of living is similar to Ireland if not a bit cheaper and the food is generally okay.

4. How has the Korean study abroad program experience changed you? 
-------------
I think I have become a more independent person from this experience. I got to develop my interpersonal skills as I was constantly meeting new people. I have also developed my computer science skills further.
