Imagine Your Korea with SKKU
Marion Launay, Exchange Student

Q1. Please introduce yourself.

Hello, my name is Marion, and I am from France. I am currently an undergraduate student at the University of Technology of Troyes (UTT), majoring in Networks and Telecommunication. This semester, I plan to study at the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU). It has been about two months since I arrived in Korea.

Q2. Why did you choose Korea?

I have always dreamed of studying in Korea — I was a huge fan of K-pop in middle school. I often listened to Korean music and watched Korean dramas and movies. After discovering the Korean culture and language, I fell in love with the country. I started studying Korean myself and even took a year of Korean class at my school. Then, following my acceptance to engineering school, I was given a chance to study abroad and thus immediately decided to come to Korea.

Q3. Why did you choose SKKU?

At my home university in France, it is compulsory for us to study for at least a semester abroad to receive a degree. Although our school has numerous partnerships with universities abroad, out of all the destinations provided, I really wanted to go to Korea. After doing some research, I discovered that SKKU is the closest to the center of Seoul, which I longed to visit the most, and that it is also a very prestigious university with exciting classes

Q4. How is your life at SKKU?

At first, finding a rhythm with my courses was sort of complicated, but I have adjusted. Also, the campus is unlike the one I attended in France, which was a new experience. I was especially astounded by the fact that there are separate buildings for each major and even convenience stores for students on campus. Studying Korean, as well as Korean culture, has also been fascinating. I have been going out a lot more recently. During my remaining time, I hope to visit different tourist destinations outside SKKU. I visited Jeju Island before the semester started, and it was terrific. I also want to try as much Korean food as possible. Of the dishes I have tried, I really liked tteokbokki, but since it is a little spicy, I cannot eat it often; my all-time favorite is japchae, though. I am sure my semester in Korea will be full of incredible yet unique experiences!
