2. Can you tell us what your goal was when you decided to study at the University of Ulsan?
The first time I met with Korean people and knew about the Korean language was four years ago at the automobile company where I worked. That company employed many excellent Korean engineers, and we built amicable relationships with each other. They left a good impression on me because of their relatable cultural background and their ethical behavior. I first heard of UOU through our chat and conversation, and learned about its founding by the Hyundai Group and its famous college of Engineering. I began yearning to study in Korea.
What encouraged me to take the first step was the excellent International Affairs Team at UOU. The Korean language program opens doors to students who are interested in the Korean language and culture, which is both necessary and helpful for beginners.
I submitted my application for graduate study with the help and guidance of the international affairs team. After several interviews with a professor, I was accepted, and that professor became my supervisor. In the beginning, I only planned to complete my Master’s degree at UOU. However, through the various and practical courses and projects, I expanded my academic talent and decided to pursue Ph.D program at UOU. The various scholarships and the professor’s support inspired me to study harder. Therefore, after two years of study, I redesigned my dreams again thanks to my supervisor and other fellow students’ assistance.
Because I fell in love with UOU, I subsequently gained higher aspirations for myself.



3. What was it like to study at the University of Ulsan?
UOU has a lot of useful resources and facilities for foreign students. I found the library and the study rooms the most useful and convenient. The study rooms are open 24 hours a day, so if you are in a rush to finish a paper or struggling before an exam, they are a great place to go. I also love the beautiful UOU campus, where cherry blossoms are just breath-taking in the spring time and yellow ginko leaves sparkle against clear blue skies in late Fall.
Above all, I met many friends who supported and guided me in both my studies and professional life. I would like to thank the staff and the teachers in the Korea language program, and the professors in my department. They will help you realize your dreams at UOU.


4. What is the hardest thing in your life at UOU?
To tell the truth, it has never been easy to study abroad. Many international students can experience loneliness and helplessness because of the poor language skills or even just because they are far away from home. That is why I am continually grateful for the support of HOW.U(Hang Out With Us) student group and the language exchange program operated by the International Affairs Team. Through these dynamic experiences, I quickly became accustomed to Korean life.


5. What is the most attractive features of the University of Ulsan?
Through the Korean language course, anyone can develop their Korean from zero to fluent. I had a enjoyable and productive time in the Korean language course. In class, I met classmates from all over the world, like Vietnamese, Filipinos, Russians, Americans and Europeans. You could experience the interaction and integration of different cultures here at UOU. I also was fortunate to meet some excellent Korean language teachers there. They care for each and every student and try to help them achieve their true potential in language and thrive in Korea. Not only that, one of the most attractive features of UOU is a beautiful and scenic campus that inspires students to study and to create. It is a relaxing place for students to stroll and enjoy nature.


6. What are your goals after your graduation?
Currently, I am studying for my Ph.D., and I hope to be a professor in China one day.
By that time, I want to make contributions to expanding cooperation between Chinese universities and UOU.


7. Is there anything you would like to say to Chinese students (graduates) who are interested in studying at the University of Ulsan?
For those fellow Chinese students who have plans and are interested in UOU, I want to say, welcome to UOU. Be prepared to seize the excellent opportunity to improve yourself and do not mess it up. If you are here, I recommend you to study hard through undergraduate or postgraduate courses and play hard through the various International Affairs Team's program. One piece of advice: before coming to UOU, you should know how far you want to reach academically. UOU is a place for those who believe in success and have a thirst for knowledge. For me, it is clear, I shaped my dreams at UOU.
