The latest episode of the Steal These Thoughts! audio experience aka my podcast has just dropped on all your favourite podcast platforms.
In this episode, I’m joined by exchange student Tasha Stevenson who has spent the last year studying abroad in South Korea and has been navigating the outbreak and impact of COVID-19 whilst studying away from home.
This is part of my ad-hoc series on COVID stories where I explore how the pandemic has affected different elements of life and share stories from people across all walks of life.
We talk about:
- How the outbreak of COVID-19 impacted her time studying in South Korea.
- The experience of a pandemic whilst studying abroad and being away from home and how this event impacted all of her fellow exchange students too.
- Why she chose not to return to the UK and complete her studies in South Korea.
- How her university education had to be adapted to suit the new environment.
- Advice for those who are considering a year exchange placement as part of their degree.
