I wanted to share what EPIK provides when you start working with them in South Korea. Every place will vary in location and size but no matter what, when you get hired by EPIK your apartment is FREE (no stress of rent, and think of the money you’ll save!). Also there is no need to purchase a bed or a desk because in your contract, there will be a list of items EPIK will already have in your apartment upon arrival.
Personally speaking, I love my place! It is in close proximity to my school.. I could literally throw a tennis ball from my door and it will hit a classroom window. The subway station is a tad far (15 minute walk or a 5 minute bus ride) but it’s never been a problem, there is a beautiful hiking trail behind my building and a handful of restaurants and cafes nearby.
Below I give you a tour of my apartment and explain what EPIK provides and doesn’t provide when you make the move, as well as information on bills bills bills (wifi, gas, electric, etc). If you have any questions about the EPIK program or what it’s like teaching English in South Korea you can always tweet me @Jessica_Moy, happy to chit-chat. 🙂
