SUNY Korea Stony Brook
To me, IGC is like an airport.
It is the perfect campus for students who aspire to reach the global stage.
My name is HWANG Jae-min, a freshman studying Applied Mathematics & Statistics at SUNY Korea Stony Brook University. I have always been interested in mathematics and dreamed of a career in math education. The scope of my interests later broadened to include big data and finance. While I was searching for universities around Korea and abroad, I came across SUNY Korea Stony Brook. I found the idea of studying at an international university in Korea really attractive.
This school has offered me the campus life that I always dreamed of. I love how we set our own study schedules, and I admire the in-depth approach to studying applied mathematics, one of the school’s strongest areas. Since starting here, I have learned to ‘drive myself toward my dream.’ I can’t wait to further broaden my insights, learning to communicate with the world and inspiring others to take an interest in math.
Having opened my eyes to the world, IGC has been an ‘airport’ for me. My school is located in the international city of Songdo, Incheon, which serves as the home of IGC, the global education hub of Northeast Asia. It is the perfect campus for those who aspire to reach the global stage. If you have ever considered studying abroad, I strongly recommend IGC.
SUNY Korea FIT
IGC offers infinite opportunities.
If you put your mind to it, you can do anything.
I am Chelsey LOADER, a freshman in Fashion Design at SUNY Korea FIT. Before joining IGC, I taught English in Korea. My passion has always been Fashion Design, and I am thrilled that I am here studying at FIT. I am particularly interested in Korean fashion, and wish to learn more about Asian fashion to possibly work in the industry later on.
I am proud that I am learning so much from the rich experiences of the professors and their classes. I cannot thank IGC enough for helping me pursue my dreams in the fashion industry.
IGC offers infinite opportunities. I can learn about other cultures and meet new friends. I am going to do everything I can to take advantage of these opportunities and pursue my dreams.
IGC is a reliable stepping stone.
It offers a myriad of experiences and
paves the way into the world.
My name is SHIN Seok-hyeon. I am a freshman taking the BA1 Prep semester at Ghent University Global Campus. My dream is to become a synthetic organic chemist – to extract bioactive materials from naturally synthesised organic matters, and to design and synthesise derivatives and compounds with pharmaceutical potential. To make my dream come true, I need a profound understanding of organic synthesis and biosynthesis, not to mention basic sciences.
GUGC offers the molecular biotechnology course on basic sciences and bioscience founded upon organic chemistry and biochemistry, in addition to opportunities to conduct experiments, which I found utterly fascinating. Moreover, I could experience international cultures and learn about trends in the industry from different professors and their areas of research.
Furthermore, all classes are taught in English. For me, one of the greatest merits is to be able to discuss my future aspirations with leading experts in English.
The University of Utah Asia Campus
Now that I study and talk with students from different countries, I get to see the world in a different way.
I am Alisa VEDESNKAIA from Russia. After graduating from high school in Russia, I joined the University of Utah Asia Campus for the undergraduate course in Film and Media Arts. After I finish my course, I want to become a film director and produce Korean dramas. There are two reasons that I find IGC particularly attractive. First, I get to experience two different cultures — Korean and American culture — at the same time. Now that I get to study and talk with students from different countries, I have come to see the world in a different way. When a problem comes along, I think about it from different perspectives in order to find a solution. I have a lot of friends with ambitious goals, and I learn so much from them. Another aspect that I love is the approach of professors at the University of Utah Asia Campus. They support us and teach us everything we might possibly need. I am new to the American education system, and whenever I run into difficulties or have questions about an assignment, the professors always explain things to me in detail. They are so supportive.
George Mason University Korea
To me, IGC is a ‘challenge.’
I challenge myself every day to be a special person in this special place.
I am YUN Ryoga, a freshman studying Global Affairs and Conflict Analysis and Resolution. To me, IGC is like a new ‘challenge.’ Before starting college, I spent three years with my family in Japan completing high school. After graduating, I was considering different colleges in Japan before I heard about IGC from a friend back in Korea. I was captivated by the fact that all of the classes were in English and that I would be able to communicate with students from all over the world. Although I am not fluent in English, I wanted to challenge myself with IGC, just as I had in adapting to the language and culture of Japan. Thus, the challenge began, and it is ongoing.
I do not yet have a definitive picture of what I want to achieve, but I am an outgoing person who loves new challenges, and I’d love to start forming a vision for my own future. I want to spend the next four years engaging in internal/external activities and forming friendships with as many international students as possible.
