Is it possible to study Korean as a language in Korea?It reads on your website "https://www.dreamstudiesabroad.com/articles/study-korea#a3" that it requires level 3 topik - Is this included in a program where the intention is to study the language? I currently live in Korea with my partner, I'm on a tourist visa and my partner is on an E2 teaching visa. I would like to stay here, ultimately I've found that applying for studies is the best method. What is the best way for me to stay here and study? I thought it would be good to study the language, but I need to change plans if I need to already have proficiency. Please advise Thank you a lot :) -Lee

We write that Topik 3 is needed to apply for degree programs taught in Korean. Knowing the language of tuition is always a prerequisite wherever you want to study in the world. International students who want to take a Bachelor's Degree in English in the US must show a TOEFL-score, and international students who want to take a degree in Korean in Korea must show Topik. Students who don't fulfill this requirement will need to take a preparatory language course.
Korean language courses are not degree programs and they don't give college credits. They are taught in private language schools and university KLI's on all levels from total beginner to advanced. If you already know some Korean you will get a test to determine your level before classes starts, otherwise you will be placed in the beginner class. Topik 3 is equivalent to passing 3 semesters, 30 weeks, in a Korean Language Institute. You will be eligible for a D4-student visa in Korea when you study at a university KLI for at least 20 weeks
We can help you to choose and apply for good Korean Language courses at several schools in Seoul, Daegu and Busan. Fill out our information request form if you want help.
