EPIK – Apply Early

Are you TESOL certified? Teach English at public schools in South Korea. EPIK is an English program run by the Ministry of Education. EPIK receives thousands of applications from qualified TESOL teachers for a total of 1,100 positions throughout South Korea. The application for the term that starts on September 2012 will open in April and it is highly recommended to apply early.

Request your application even if you have not completed your TESOL course. Applicants without a TESOL certificate will be required to submit a proof of enrollment letter and must complete the course prior to the application deadline.

Applicants who submit documentation close to the deadline are placed on a waiting list. The Criminal Record Check (CRC) takes approximately 3 months to process, so request your EPIK application early, complete the screening interviews, and obtain the required documentation as soon as possible.

Earn $2,000 per month plus accommodation and other benefits! EPIK applicants must be native speakers from Canada, USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand, or South Africa, or citizens of South Korea with a proficient level of English. Applicants must have a university degree from an English-speaking country and an internationally recognized 100-hour TESOL certificate or higher qualification. Teaching experience is not required.
