Application News/Updates:
February 1, 2023: The Fall 2023 application has opened.
 
 
Before starting your application, please read through the Initial Application Preparation Guide  This will give you details on what you need to prepare before starting your application on the online system. You will be prompted to upload certain files while you complete the online application, and this guide will give you specifics on how to prepare those in advance. Failure to prepare your application in accordance with the guide can lead to processing delays.
 
We recommend that applicants join the official Facebook group for this term at EPIK Fall 2023. Here we will post updates throughout the application period, you may ask questions here as well, and you can meet others applying for the term.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
 

The EPIK application is similar to rolling admission. This means that we will process applications in the order that we receive them, and earlier submission of your application followed by the complete required documents package after a successful interview will lead to a higher chance of successful placement.

For direct applicants, we will begin reviewing applications in the order received in teh weeks following the opening of applications. At that time, we will inform applicants whether or not they have been selected for an interview. It will take some time to review applications, so please be patient in waiting for a reply from us as this may take some time.

For applicants applying through an official Recruitment Agency or one of our partner MOU/MOA Organizations, please be sure to contact them directly first before creating an account/submitting an application for specific directions and guidelines.


TIP: While some documents are not necessary for the initial application, we do recommend that applicants begin the process of obtaining their documents as listed in the Required Documents section in advance. These only need to be submitted after a successful interview, but having them ready to go sooner rather than later would be beneficial overall for your application, especially as some document processing may still be delayed due to COVID-19. However, please note that having these ready earlier does not guarantee acceptance at any stage of the application process.

Any questions can be sent to epik@korea.kr. Before submitting a question, please read through the 'FAQ' and the Initial Application Preparation Guide thoroughly.
 

Thank you for your interest in EPIK!

Sincerely,
EPIK Team
