Hello everyone! My name is Kristina Lomaka, I am from Russia, Khabarovsk. I am lucky to take part in the Korean Studies program, after finishing which student gets the BA degree in Korean Studies.
By the way, it is not my first experience living in South Korea: I have lived in Seoul for one year. However, this time I had a chance to go to Busan for 2 years. When I first came to this amazing, warm and sea town, I wasn’t disappointed at all.
I was settled in building C of the “Global Town” dormitory in double room. The dormitory was built recently; all rooms are clean, big and bright: everyone has a bed, table, chair and a huge wardrobe. Every room consists of a balcony or a window with a beautiful mountain or campus view. Also there is the bathroom with hot water in each room, which is also very good. Besides, each room consists of the air conditioning and a floor heating system.
There is the cafeteria in the building A of Global Town dormitory. You can enjoy International or Korean food there. Also there is a convenient store, where you can buy a lunch. Moreover, there are lots of cheap cafes, cafeterias and shops in the campus.
University territory is huge: you can walk down the hill, or you can see a beautiful pond with the ducks, also you can easily go to the center of the town using free school shuttle bus. Besides, mountain air is very clean and favorable for studying processes.
Saying about the program, I must add that Korean Studies program is taught in English, all professors are native English speakers and Korean Professors. Aside from studying the main course (Korean Economics, East Asian International Relations etc.), all students study Korean Language. All Professors are kind, responsive and communicable.
So, come to South Korea, come to Busan, I highly recommend to you our amazing Silla University!
