Olympic figure skating champion Yuna Kim‘s retirement plans include going back to school.

Kim, who performed in farewell ice shows in Seoul last week, is awaiting admission to Korea University Graduate School, according to the Korea Times, citing Kim’s agency.

She had an interview with the university Saturday and intends to major in physical education after graduating from the university’s undergraduate school last year, according to the report.

Kim put off grad school to focus on the Sochi Olympics, where she won a silver medal behind Russian Adelina Sotnikova, and will learn if she is admitted June 5. If she is admitted, Kim will begin classes in the fall semester, the Korea Times reported.
