The study on everyday life of the Gosiwon will be used as basic data to better understand students’fieldwork experiences. The question of the study was “what are daily survival strategies for fieldwork students who lived in Gosiwon?”.

Results : The results of the study consisted of 86 semantic units, 14 sub-components, and 6 components, and components about occupational therapy students’survival in the unfamiliar and desolate Gosiwon were as follows. There were‘ burden of narrow Gosiwon space’,‘ difficulty of common life’,‘ experience of serious psychological stresses’,‘ obtaining of power from family’s love’,‘ understanding of the survival strategy in the common life’, and‘ understanding of the survival strategy in the unfamiliar environment’. Conclusions : Fieldwork students used their own various strategies to survive the Gosiwon, and diverse approaches should be sought to support them.
