CHOOSE A PROGRAM AND A UNIVERSITY
Even if you want to enrol in a degree programme that is mostly taught in English, you should begin by studying Korean if you intend to study in Korea for an extended period of time. Learning Korean is essential to enjoying and achieving success in Korea.
If you wish to study on a student visa, you must submit an application to your institution at least three to four months prior to the beginning of your course. Find the universities in South Korea on our study abroad portal, then select and apply to an institution that meets your needs.

GET AN INSURANCE
When studying abroad in Korea, a student insurance policy is required. Before the school can provide you the documentation you need to apply for a student visa, you must provide proof of insurance. If you choose to acquire your own study abroad insurance, you must do so while applying to the school; otherwise, you must purchase the insurance given by the university.
After admission and payment of tuition, the institute will assist you in applying for a student visa. The experts at Aspiredia will also advise you through the admissions procedure.
A student visa is referred to as a D-visa, followed by a number that differs based on the field of study in Korea. After six months of study in Korea on a student visa, you are eligible to apply for permission to work part-time. Contact your university for additional information.
If you are having any sort of issues or difficulties, Aspiredia’s student care representatives are available 24/7 to assist you. You can either click on Ask Us at the bottom right corner of your screen or simply leave us a e-mail.
Study in South Korea Visa Guidelines
BOOK AN ACCOMODATION
In Korea, international students have the option of living on campus or off campus. Both options have advantages and disadvantages, depending on what is most important to you. Living on campus is incredibly handy, while living off campus provides you more independence.
If you don’t mind sharing a room with another student, living in a dorm on campus is an excellent option. University dorms are frequently well-appointed with amenities such as a gym, study and social space, cafeteria, etc. The dormitory rates are affordable, the cafeteria food is inexpensive and convenient, and you can stroll to class. To reside in a student dormitory, one must be prepared to adhere to specific rules, including guest limitations, curfew, and a possible holiday closure time.
If you value your privacy and independence, or if you want to select where to live, we recommend seeking off-campus housing. You have the option of living with a host family or in a shared apartment.
TRAVEL TO SOUTH KOREA
Explore South Korea. Have fun studying in Korea. Prepare yourself for a culture shock upon arrival. Therefore, maintain a level head and an open mind, investigate, and have pleasure!
Beginning on 1 April 2022, quarantine will no longer be required for WHO-compliant students who preregister their immunisation status before entering Korea. You must have a negative Covid-test (PCR-test) with an English or Korean-written result within 48 hours before flying to Korea. Consult the website of the Korean embassy in your country for further information.
If you plan a flight before receiving a visa, be careful to provide adequate time for processing. Alternately, you may book it after your visa has been issued, but rates may be higher. For your studies in South Korea, ensure that you have adequate student insurance.
At the time of entry into South Korea, you will be required to fill out a landing card. If you are travelling with a visa waiver, you can select the Tour box. If you are entering with a student visa, you must select Study.
Best of luck, or as the Koreans say, 잘보세요!
