You can list one preferred Office of Education (ex. Gyeongbuk) on the application form. We will try our best to place you in your preferred location. However, placement in any specific office of education is not guaranteed and depends on a variety of factors such as the availability of positions, the needs and requirements of each office of education, and the timing of when we receive your final documentation for recommendation, etc.
You will only know the school and specific location within the metropolitan /provincial office of education you have been placed in after arriving in Korea and completing the mandatory orientation. When you meet your Office of Education’s supervisors at the orientation, that is when you will be given specific information.
If you withdraw after receiving final approval, you will be prohibited from applying to EPIK for two consecutive terms following the term of your withdrawal. Withdrawing from the application process before final placement has no negative consequence.
