Alumnis Testimonials

HISS was a very good program! It offered a chance of a lifetime to study and meet new people in a nice environment. South Korea is a very nice country. I’m glad that I got to go and have a great time.

Erin Herman, Pittsburg State University

I would recommend HISS to all my friends because becoming part of HISS is such a life changing experience and I was able to meet friends from all over the world whom I will keep throughout my life. The HISS program made me feel like part of a big family.

Anne Rei Alcantara Driza, Birmingham City University

I feel that the summer program has allowed me to experience Korean Culture from a very local perspective, gain many friends, as well as get insights from lecturers that come from overseas. It was a very unique experience that I don’t think you will ever be able to get unless you attend a summer school program.

Vanessa Lim Yi Ru, Singapore University of Social Sciences

I would 100% recommend the HISS program to any one who asks me about it. The program and different activities we got to do were incredible. Also, the city of Seoul itself is something I will never forget. I met so many friends and experienced so many new things. I have only fantastic things to say about HISS and Seoul.

Audrey Wallace, Ohio Northern University

It was fantastic to experience Seoul and Korean culture, but also having friends from the University to share it with. The courses and activities were also great, and a good way to focus and spend time with friends

Nikolaj Anker Nielsen, University of South Denmark

I felt that HISS was a brilliant choice for summer school as the courses I took were taught by great professors and the entire planning and execution of activities were efficient and effective.

Taufiq Bin Amaran, National University of Singapore

HISS was an amazing experience and I felt that everyone was fully appreciated and welcomed, regardless of their nationality or language. It felt great to be surrounded by so many people from so many different places. It was an experience I’ll never forget.

Alison Murphy, Athabasca University

Overall I would say that i enjoyed HISS a lot because it not only gave a wide variety of activities but also many interesting modules transferable to my home university :) Sum:porters were also very helpful in ensuring everyone has a pleasant study at HISS.
