Year of charity work awaits.

A STUDENT from Coventry University hopes to use a year out in South Korea to encourage more people to study in Britain.

Man Yee Wong, 25, originally from Hong Kong, is volunteering for the charity International Cultural Youth Exchange (ICYE) in Seoul.

She will leave for a 12-month stint in South Korea's capital this September and hopes to encourage more students to come to the UK.

Miss Wong, who has just completed her second year of a communication, authoring and design course, is also currently working with the city's Sense charity, which helps deafblind people.

She hopes to do some work with a charity for disabled people in the Far East.

To take part, Miss Wong must raise pounds 3,250 to pay for flights and living expenses.

Anyone who wants to help is asked to contact Miss Wong c/o ICYE on 0207 681 0983 or email
