- Collect your student visa from the Embassy when it is ready.

We suggest arriving no earlier than 2 weeks prior to your school’s term start. If you arrive earlier, this could cause issues with your visa validity period. Don’t worry! Your student coordinator will communicate your school’s starting dates well in advance so you can prepare your travel arrangements.

Can I only apply to schools listed on your website?
Unfortunately yes. We cannot offer assistance in applying for language schools that we are not currently partnered with, as they each have their own process and regulations that we are unaware of.
Do you only help with long-term studies?
Of course not! We can assist you in applying for studies from 3 months, or even shorter with our specialized Study trips that range from 2 – 3 weeks. For more information on short-term stays, just ask!
Can I bring my pet with me to Korea?
Many accommodations do not allow pets and there are also quarantine rules for animals including dogs and cats. It would be challenging to bring a pet for a short period of time.
Can I choose if I get morning or afternoon classes?
Your school will determine your class schedule based on your current level of Korean.
