    I really want to go to a university in Korea, I still have a year left until that but how do I bring it up to my parents? Also I am currently learning the language. Also do you think it is a good idea to go somewhere so far from where I am (UK)

    Then things are slightly different.
    I hope it works for you as it is not a bad idea after all.

    I'd make sure you visit beforehand to experience the culture as much as you can - see if it suits you. It's a good idea to endorse yourself as much as you can within it, and consider what life might be like there as a resident.

    Perhaps look into whether international students are common within the universities you're considering. It's good to have a support network - especially if you don't have family over there; regardless of how independent you may be as an individual.

    Once you're happy with whatever option route you may take - remember that this is your life and so only you can decide where you go with it. If your aspiration is to study in Korea, then so be it. 😊

    many kpop fans or korean culture admirer dream of going to korea to live/study, it's not a bad idea. just prepare for the culture shock and the treatment towards foreigners vary - it's either very good or very bad. watch eatyourkimchi youtube channel, they've moved to japan now but their previous 500 videos were about their 7 years in korea

    If you do a degree in Korea you'd pay International fees - with no help from Student Finance.

    If you do a UK degree with a Study Abroad in Korea a) its easier, b) its cheaper.
    Examples : http://www.bradford.ac.uk/internatio...nal-exchanges/ AND http://www.soas.ac.uk/japankorea/programmes/bakor/

    Or you could do a Summer Course in Korea : http://www.hufs.ac.kr/eng/
