Teaching with a 3-year degree
« on: January 04, 2014, 10:08:02 am »
Hi everyone!

Can I teach in Korea with a 3-year university degree from Canada? Whenever I ask this question, people just say "as long as it says bachelor of ..." it is fine. But I want to know if anyone has gotten into Korea with a 3 year degree? It is a bachelor, so it will say "bachelor of" but itwill also say "general" somewhere in there.

Thanks!

Rob

Most British degrees take 3 years to complete. I'm sure you'll be fine :wink:

Wintermute and spyblonde33, you're both from Canada and when did you two get in? Also, were you in public or private schools?

Just out of curiosity, what is the exact wording of the degree? Is it something like "General Bachelor of Arts in ...?"

Thanks!

Canadian here. I have a 3-year Bachelor's degree in Linguistics from York University. I had no problems getting a job. Just have your official BA certificate.

Yeah, from Canada, got into Korea in Feb 2012, public schools for both my jobs.
My degree reads "Bachelor of Arts Three Year: Psychology"
Yeah, I have my original, but I also got copies of it and got all the copies notarized from a law office, so if I wanted to switch schools at the end of my first year (which I ended up doing), I wouldn't have to go through the hassle of getting more copies.

Thanks for the replies guys!

That's good to hear. I've just had different answers from different people. I posted the same question on a different forum before and was told that it's all a crap shoot and could depend on the wording of my degree.

It's driving me crazy and nobody seems to have a concrete answer for me. I've tried calling the consulate and asking them too.
