Guideline: How to join Student Exchange Program in South Korea Higher Institution??

As Korean Wave penetrate around the globe, there are so many people around the world whose really interested in Korean culture. Some of them even get a chance to experience what was it like Korean daily life is by joining student exchange program in either University or Korean school. Ooh how I wish I could turn back the time!! If I can, I really wanna join this program too!ㅋㅋㅋ

Earlier I did mentioned about student exchange program in school or university isn't it?? I guess for today lets just focus on how to join student exchange program in South Korea Universities. Since we were living in globally environment, these days is it common to see people from various countries around us! ^^

South Korean were known for protecting their roots, cultural and heritage well even though some of them already living abroad!!ㅋㅋㅋ Since all of us is going towards global, they have to slowly adapt with international environment. One of the ways is to let Koreans mix up with foreigners by providing student exchange program in Korean universities as well to send some of their student abroad for experiencing new places, new cultures and new environment!

People always says for learning cultural or language, going to the motherland of those particular cultural/language is the best solution! I guess its true!ㅋㅋㅋ Long time ago, one of my Korean close friend did ask me to join this program so that I will understand how hectic Korean life is!ㅋㅋ but at that time I didn't seriously have a deep thought about it! ㅠㅠ Now I'm kind of regret though!ㅠㅠ
