Gyungnam Public School (EPIK)

Printer-friendly version

Failed the EPIK application / interview but still very much want an EPIK public school?


It is still possible.


In addition to EPIK; we work with an education office whereby it’s possible for you to apply and be successful.


The education office is the Gyeongsangnamdo Office of Education ( - GOE


How is it possible?  The GOE office prefers to hire through us – the reason is that they want to interview you.  They want to get an impression of you and place you into a school which they feel comfortable.  Whereas if they hired you through EPIK; they would not be able to speak with you; and EPIK would place you into one of their schools – and they prefer to operate otherwise.


So if you have failed your EPIK application / EPIK interview; it’s still possible for you to have an EPIK public school through us.  We will guide you through the process and ensure your success – that is our job.
