South Korea is a popular teaching destination with some excellent international schools. We work closely with our partner schools in South Korea to assist talented teachers in finding a job there.
Living in South Korea
South Korea is popular with international teachers for its young and lively expat community and relatively high potential for saving. Located in East Asia, it has a humid climate with hot summers and cold winters, and a brief rainy season in summer. The capital, Seoul, is a bustling metropolis. Other main cities are Busan, Daegu and Gwangju. Transport within South Korea is fast and efficient, making it easy to get from one part of the country to another. South Korea boasts 20 spectacular national parks, and hiking is a popular hobby.
Visas and Medical
Citizens of some countries do not need a visa for the first 90 days of their stay. To check your requirements, see https://south-korea.visahq.co.uk/ Public healthcare is of a high standard in South Korea, although you must have received your Alien Registration Card (ARC) before you can use it. Private healthcare is also available. Many international schools offer private health insurance as part of their benefits package. http://www.expatarrivals.com/south-korea/healthcare-in-south-korea
