Hi Ashley! How r u??? I see that your going to Korea.Are you going through a recruitement agency?? When are you going?? Hope yr ok! Maria x
I found this very VERY helpful :) it's a PDF walk through. It does sound costly but I think I can manage it ok with this help. Though he VISA will need some recruiter help. They sure don't make it easy do they =P I also asked at my doctors about a complete health/medical exam and the receptionist knew little about it all or what one I should get. Have you had yours yet, how long does it last?
Sounds like a lot of work from what I found on this site. See when you need a document to get an apostille. Whereabouts would you do this in the UK? In a police station, a court, foreign office?
I am going to see my doctor today about getting a medical exam;
C. MEDICAL EXAM CERTIFICATE- Complete Health self-assessment form and send it to employer in Korea.
I am also going to go see about getting a criminal record check. My sister who lives abroad told me where I can go to get one :)
Can you look at the link I posted and if you agree with most of it and that it's the right way to go about the process then I think I can do it all.
I'm taking my gf on our week off down to London on Sunday :) maybe you can help me fill out some forms =P
Hey how you doing Ashley. I've done 120 hours, with my 20 hour practical video course just to finish off. I am interested in South Korea too. Though it's proving a challenge to find out everything you need to know about applying, filling out VISA forms, checks, jabs etc.
Have you applied for EPIK 2012? I see a director respond to you, saying the Feb intake forms open on the 1st of October. Does that mean I need to have my VISA processed by then and all the other stuff I mentioned?
If you have any other words of wisdom that would be appreciated, cheers!
How you doing mate! yeah i'm applying for the february intake. I've made up my mind and i'm applying for busan as my first choice. What about yourself? Hows all the paper work coming along? I've only got my disclosure that needs doing and i'm ready to go!
I finished Checkpoint 3 and took a break. I've started the next module today. I don't know if I will finish in the 90 days but I'm not too worried about it. As for my application, I have sent it in to ESLStarter and waiting until October for an interview. Right now, I'm getting all my documents together to have them ready to be sent. Have you decided on the EPIK program yet? I am getting excited thinking about it but also trying to be realistic because there is a possibility that I might not be accepted. How's London?
Hey. Sorry for the long response. Yea. I work about 40 - 50 hours a week. We will see how it goes though. I know I just have to finish by January. I have already started the application process for S.K. Waiting for my reference letters and got to write my essay. Then, I can send off my application letter. Have you decided on a place yet?
your telling me mate! It's not through Epik but i have done application forms for the Epik program just haven't been able to finish it off just yet. Its bloody loooong!!!
i've applied for the october intake with footprints but i might decide to hold it till feb and raise more cash before i leave. Which recruitment agency are going through? I wana build up a few more links before i go up there aswel cos face it going there on your j's not knowing anyone its pretty daunting.
Hey you alright there mate! I'm from North London near the the crappy arsenal stadium lol. how bout you? Finally i'm not the only guy in London thats having problems. I've been told by a few korean people to head up to seoul as it's more livelier and more stuff to do out there. I thought Busan would be nice because it's a lot more peaceful and that face that I maybe i need a change from the busy city life like london.
