  7. 7. First days of arrival<br />How to Reach Help?<br />If you are not quite sure about something, it is always best to ask to the Staff prior to your arrival. If you cannot reach them after your arrival, there are other sources that you can contact in case of emergency, too.<br />Your Embassy: Please write down your embassy phone number before you come, so that you have a reliable source to ask help.<br />Your Partner Mentor Student: ITTP will link you to one of the students from the last batch (group of people who arrived one semester before you). Maintain good connection with them and ask for their cellphone numbers (everyone has those)<br />Korean Mentors: ITTP has Korean mentors available. Call us in case of emergency. Our information is in mentor page, in ITTP website, http://ittp.kaist.ac.kr/mentor<br />
  8. 8. First days of arrival<br />What is Needed?<br />Some Cash (Korean Won): You cannot receive your scholarship until you make the bank account, and it takes quite time, up to a month. Thus, in order to make up a living, you should have some Korean Won with you.<br />※In the airport, only exchange money about a 100 dollars. The exchange rate in the airport is quite bad.<br />Emergency contact list: Since you are new here, you might encounter some difficulties when you hang around alone. In case you are lost, you might need some emergency contact list that you can call.<br />※Ask your Korean mentors their numbers when you arrive.<br />
