안녕하세요
annyeonghaseyo, This is Brittany Hart, I am a senior at ISU and I will be studying at
Dong-Ah Institute of Media Arts in South Korea this fall. I am one of ISU’s many Study Abroad
Correspondents. So I will be filming myself talking about my experiences. This is my predeparture
video where I’ll be talking about the tools I utilized to choose my program and also what
I’m looking forward to the most. So let’s start with how I chose my program and some
of the obstacles I faced. It’s not that hard, it’s kind of time consuming and sometimes
it takes a while like your transcripts and passport if you don’t have your passport yet.
Like I already had mine so it was really easy you just have to like print out the data page
like this page right here with your name and stuff. You also need your visa depending on
where you’re going. Once you’re accepted and you finish most of your paperwork you’ll talk
to your faculty director for the program and they will go over your classes and stuff like
that and when you’re leaving and how you’re going to get there. I met with two of the
people that I’m going with, like in springtime. And we discussed which flight we wanted to
take could choose United Airlines or Korean Airlines I think and we went with United just
because it’s cheaper. So you want your itinerary, you want your passport, you want your visa
if it’s required. Some of the things that I’m looking forward to doing there and seeing
there: South Korea has a lot of beautiful national parks, must like the States do. They’re
very mountainous and lots of trees, hills, and great for hiking. I love hiking so I’m
going to do a lot of that. In the city there’s lots of market places and like shopping malls,
I’m going to do a lot of that stuff. I’ll probably end up taking a tour of Ansun City,
which is the city by DIMA. Thanks for watching and I will see you again when I am in South
Korea.
