Seoul offering orientation to foreign students
By Kim Rahn
Seoul Global Center is sending staff members to universities here to give new foreign students information that they will need for their daily lives.
In the orientation program, the staff will provide details on medical services and public transportation, and on how to get a driver’s license, cell phone and banking services.
Other information includes the location of libraries and large-scale bookstores in the capital as well as tourist sites.
The staff members have visited nine universities so far, and will visit Hanyang, Ewha Womans and Kyung Hee universities on Monday. The orientation will be given in English, while Chinese and Japanese will be available at Kyung Hee.
Besides the orientation, Seoul City has been offering various programs for foreign students ― in the Seoul International Student Forum participants visit public organizations, experience cultural activities and propose ideas for foreign-policy, while interns in Seoul Global Internship work at city organizations for a month.
