EPIK July Deadline, Complete TESOL Course by Monday!

Hi trainees!

If you need to show your TESOL certificate before the July 20th deadline and you haven’t completed the course, you need to submit your final assignments as soon as possible. While most EPIK administrators accept an e-copy of the certificate, some have asked for the original TESOL certificate to be sent to their office in Korea before July 20th.

Our Director of Studies will coordinate with your tutor to issue your certificate as soon as you complete the TESOL course, but  you need to pass everything by Monday July 16th for mail to arrive in case that you are required to submit the original print copy.   If you think that you need a few extra days to complete the course, find out if the e-copy is accepted while you wait for the original to arrive. Extra charges  apply  for mailing the certificate via Fed Ex.

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.
