Is it hard to get accepted to study in South Korea?

Hi there. 

I will jump into my question straight away!

How difficult is it to be accepted to study in South Korea?  I am from South Africa and I would love to study abroad.

As financing would be a problem, is it possible to do some part-time work to support myself and also my studies?

Answer:

It depends on what you want to study. Most foreign students start with a Korean language course, since the Bachelor programs usually requires TOPIK 3 level in Korean. As long as you have graduated from high school it is easy to get accepted to the language programs but in order to get your student visa you must pay your tuition fee and show that you have enough money for living costs. You are not allowed to work until 6 months into your studies with permission from your university.

If you are enrolled in a university in your home country you can also take study abroad semesters in Korea.
