Life of Foreign Students in KNU during Pandemic

-through Interview with three foreign students in KNU-

 

 Since the outbreak of COVID19, the entire world is seething with this virus. Some countries are taking a big hit and thereby bringing about a lot of death, but some took a preemptive measure against the virus at the early stage, so they could save their people. Although Korea is considered one of the countries that dealt with the virus well, it could not avoid its damage caused by it. In this hard time, I met and interviewed two foreign students in KNU to see how they are going through this tough time and what has been changed in their life.

 

1st Interviewee: Benkhaldoun Idriss from Morocco

-        He is in the first year of KNU and studying English English language and literature as an undergraduate level.

 

Q1. How COVID19 and the change into online lectures affect your life as a KNU student who is studying abroad?

 Well, it was very difficult to pass through these difficulties, but I can say that online lectures at home are the only safest way to get through these difficult moments. As a person, I can say these online lectures positively affect my life. And, it was weird since we did not experience it before, but these changes did make me see life from a different perspective.

 

Q2. Did school, KNU, communicate well with foreign students by posting a necessary announcement or messaging them on time?

 KNU has offered us all the announcements on time to deal with this Virus. I think that helps to pass through this situation, KNU did all the right paths to give the students a safe way to finish their studies by establishing online classes in a crucial time.

 

 

2nd Interviewee: Bujinlkham Mendbayar from Mongolia

-        She is a sophomore and studying tourism administration

 

Q1. How COVID19 and the change into online lectures affect your life as a KNU student who is studying abroad?

 It has affected my life in certain ways. I was in a pressure to decide if I should go back or not to school while I was back home over last winter break. School wanted me to come back until the designated time, but if I failed to do that, I started working on my visa issue from scratch and trying to get admission like a freshman. I almost would have lost one year. Fortunately, despite uncertain things and worry from my family, I decided to back to school and rarely got a chance to take an airplane and could come back to Korea.

 

Q2. Did school, KNU, communicate well with foreign students by posting a necessary announcement or messaging them on time?

 To be honest, I was really frustrated because our school's decision-making process seemed to be slow and delayed compared to other schools in Korea. I would have taken online courses back at home safe with my family if they had made a decision a little bit faster. But, in my opinion, it was obvious during this pandemic to have online classes and I do understand the school's perspective because this issue's spectrum was global. I cannot be selfish.
