I heard that if you are already in Korea, if you finish the 1 year contract, they give you a one way ticket so that you can go back to your home country.

But what if you want to come back to Korea? Since a round trip ticket costs about the same as a one way ticket, can you just tell them to give you money for a one way ticket and then add with your own money whatever is needed to raise it to the amount it takes to buy a round trip ticket?

Depends! With JLP public school program you just get the 1.3 million money no questions asked, you can spend it on whatever you like. Not sure about other programs though

I always thought they just deposited the estimated amount of a one way flight ticket to your country to your bank.  It is still your job to order a ticket by yourself using that money.

Check your contract.

EPIK gives you a fixed 1.3 million (if it's not enough, too bad).

GEPIK stipulates a bunch of terms and conditions and asks for proof.

Your contract could be different.
