Once you’ve paid your deposit, our BUNAC team will give you a call to run through the program, answer any questions, and check your eligibility before introducing you to our awesome team in South Korea.
Next, we’ll set up a video call with the South Korea team. The team are super friendly and knowledgeable – and will be able to answer any questions and run through the visa process, TESOL course and your arrival orientation week.
Once everything is confirmed, it’s safe to go ahead and book your flights and travel insurance. Full payment for your program costs will be due 12 weeks before departure. Don’t worry, we’ll let you know when it’s coming up.
If you choose an online course, our partners will set you up with the training and you can start completing your 120 hours.
Your arrival orientation week is followed by your three-week TESOL course (if in-class). Your job placement is guaranteed afterwards – with every effort made to match you with any requirements you may have.
Will I be taxed from my monthly wage?
