AIMS Scholarship Program at Daegu Catholic University, South Korea (Fall 2018)

Studying abroad has been the best choice that I’ve made. I would like to express my gratitude to Daegu Catholic UniversityBINUS University and also Indonesian Government through the Ministry of Research and Higher Education for giving me this valuable opportunity to be one of AIMS Scholarship recipients to Daegu Catholic University in South Korea as exchange student for 1 semester.

AIMS Scholarship Program in Daegu Catholic University provided us free Korean language class and various Korean cultural experience programs, including city tour, historical places tour, wellness tourism experience, wearing Hanbok, learning Korean etiquettes and Korean traditional instruments, making Korean traditional paper art and Korean eco bag, making Korean foods, watching K-Pop concerts, and many more in various cities in South Korea, such as Daegu, Gyeongju, Pohang, Andong, Busan, Seoul, and Gangwon.

Living in Korea for almost half a year, I got to experience a lot of things that I believe I couldn’t get somewhere else. Not only that I got to improve my English skills, I also got to learn Korean language and build international relations with many international friends from various countries.There are a lot of unforgettable memories that I had in Korea for almost half a year, thanks to my international friends, my lecturers, Daegu Catholic University, and all of the people that I met when I was in Korea who made me feel so glad that I came to Korea.

고맙습니다! (Thank you!)

Lastly, I would like to say that: “It will never enough to stay in one place to learn and develop, find as much opportunity as you can, be brave to explore, and you will never regret it!”

So, never miss the golden chance and grab your opportunity to study abroad now!
