Spreading epidemics, closed campuses, high rents... How do they complete their studies in a difficult situation?

Recently, reporters from interviewed many international students from different countries and listened to them talk about their study life under the epidemic.

Guarding the campus but only online classes

  "With expensive rent and tuition fees, we can only stay in the rental room for online classes. It is too difficult for us international students who stay overseas..." Talking about the life of studying abroad under the epidemic, a junior at the University of the Arts in London Ye Yutong was helpless.

  Ye Yutong now takes four online classes a week and rarely goes out in her spare time. Although the rented house is close to the school, she has not been to school for three months.

“It was originally planned to use online and offline mixed teaching this semester, but as the epidemic became serious, all courses were transferred to online and the campus was closed.”

  She also struggled over whether to return to China, but considering that she was in the last year of her undergraduate studies, in addition to completing the course, she had to prepare graduation thesis and application materials. She was under great pressure to study, and finally decided to stay in London.

  "Schools are also working hard to improve the quality of online courses to ensure our learning effects. For example, teachers will embed lecture audio into ppt, and provide recorded course videos at the same time, and each class will also have interactive Q&A time." Ye Yutong said .

  Tao Yifei is a student of the Korean Language School of Chung-Ang University Seoul Campus. She just graduated from a domestic high school this year and came to Seoul to study Korean in September to prepare for the undergraduate degree of Chung-Ang University.

  "Since I came here, I have been taking online classes. I have never seen my classmates. I have 20 classes a week and I have to complete heavy homework." Tao Yifei said that after coming to Seoul for so long, he hasn't taken care of it. Take a look around.

"Now I just want to pass the language test in one go and apply for my favorite major smoothly."

Go to the supermarket only once a week

  Ye Yutong now wakes up the first thing every day is to watch the news and learn about the latest epidemic situation in the UK.

"Looking at the numbers that are rising day by day, I am still flustered. I can only minimize the number of trips."

  “I always go to the supermarket once every Saturday to buy enough ingredients and daily necessities for a week, and I stay in the house other time.” Ye Yutong said, there are plenty of goods in London supermarkets, but toilet paper and eggs are sometimes out of stock.

"I also order food online through some apps, and they can deliver it to my door."

  Wei Dandan got the PHD offer from the Free University of Brussels in March this year. Affected by the epidemic, she finally came to the school to report in mid-October.

  "The house was rented before I came, but there are still a lot of living supplies to buy." Wei Dandan told reporters that the epidemic in Belgium was very serious recently. She went to a supermarket to buy everything, and then she didn't go out without going out.

  She said that fortunately, doctoral students have a higher degree of freedom in learning, and most of the time they do their own research.

"At present, I have worked out a research plan with my mentor, and I usually find materials and write articles through online libraries."

"If you keep it, help it"

  "Since the second wave of the epidemic broke out in Italy, the number of compatriots seeking help in online shelters has skyrocketed every day." Xia Shuyu said that when I received the request for help, I immediately packed the medicine and sent it out as soon as possible.

"At most, I have to send two hundred medicines a day and I'm very busy."

  Xia Shuyu told reporters that as an international student, she is willing to do what she can in her spare time.

"Since I choose to stay here, I will do my best to help the compatriots in need. I hope that the epidemic will end soon and everything will get better soon!" (End)
