In Ok Joe
한국 대학 교환학생 프로그램의 연계성 문제에 대한 검토
This study aims at not only checking if there are some problems in connection between chinese universities and korean universities, but also making useful alternatives through investigating the differences between anticipation and experience of students who will be and had been in korea as exchange students about exchange student program in korean universities. Although korean universities have kept improving exchange student program for international student, the level of satisfaction of the returned chinese exchange students were low for it. This is caused by the language environment that chinese exchange students were obliged to live and study mainly with chinese students. There was no difference in that chinese students study with korean teachers in classrooms and live with chinese friends in dormitory in both korea and china. It is needed to improve exchange student s psychological satisfaction by some culture experience program. Nevertheless, the returned exchange students reportedly could not assure that they are capable to be back higher grades in which they are demanded to demonstrate their own academic and language ability in classes teaching koreanology in korean. So this study has demonstrated there are some problems in connecting in learning curriculum between sending universities and receiving universities. In order to make up for this problem, it is needed for chinese universities to give precise information about learning contents and level of their students. Also it was emphasized that korean universities should make practical learning environment for exchange students to accomplish their academic goal fully in korea.
