Almost all the international students at KDIS eagerly wait for the summer break to participate in the Korea Field Research and Study (KFRS) trip, one of the most interesting and enlightening projects offered to them. Buses full of students with a hunger for adventure went on this long-awaited excursion on August 7 this year.

The traditional four-day summer trip involved visiting some major industrial zones and undertakings such as POSCO, the world’s largest steel company, and Hyundai Heavy Industries Corporation. Apart from that, the students also visited several important historical places and took in the cultural sights of Korea. The  students got to see the Cheomseongdae Observatory, Hahoe Folk Village, Bulguksa temple, Gyeongju National Museum and Memorial Park of Saemaul Undong.

The KFRS gave the international students the opportunity to understand some of the key foundations of Korea’s modern economy and improve their knowledge of its diverse aspects.
