About

Korvia Consulting is one of the largest and most trusted public school teacher placement agencies in South Korea. Since 2006, Korvia has offered teachers continual support from initial application, to their first day of school, to their final day in South Korea. Korvia is also one of the few agencies to be located in the nation's capital of Seoul allowing us uninterrupted communication as well as access to some of the best positions available.

Korvia works directly with the Korean government as well as education offices around the country and are an OFFICIAL PARTNER of the EPIK, GEPIK, and GOE programs.

Dedicated Support: With You from the Beginning Till End.

Our #1 priority is you. We believe that by hiring qualified and dedicated teachers we can improve the overall quality of the Korean education as a whole. We are with you through the application process, at the airport when you arrive, and the last phone call you’ll receive if you decide to go back to your home country. We’ll be with you until the end!

Questions & Answers

I arrived in Korea (Seosan) last week, and Korvia helped me with my ARC card! I was picked up from school and taken to my medical exam, as well as to submit my ARC paperwork the next day (once we received my exam results). I just have to pick up the ARC card on my own when it is ready.

Thank You Korvia

Thanks to Korvia I was able to get the support I needed to successfully hand in all required documents to the EPIK program on time. They walked me through the process efficiently and in a timely manner. I was able to feel at ease because I knew a second pair of eyes had looked at all my documents in my application package and that they would be sent in on time. Thanks again Korvia for all of your help during the process!

Professional and Reputable

Korvia is a professional consulting agency that has helped me reach my dream of becoming a Native English Teach in South Korea.

The agency has guided me every step of the way, from submitting the proper documentations for my application to receiving a bank account and pre-paid phone plan upon arrival in Korea. I am grateful Korvia’s guidance and patience and have already recommended the agency to many friends. Shout out to Brian for being a great recruiter!

Help all the way

I'm a recent EPIK teacher from the Spring 2018 group. My recruiter Brian Yun, has helped me tremendously with my process. I was living in Brazil when I applied, and I was offered support and was kept well informed of my status while there. It was an interesting transition, but the dedication of this team has proven time and time again how much they care the people who wish to go to EPIK through Korvia.

Thanks for everything!

Guardian Angel

I cannot thank Korvia enough for all their help with my application. Applying for EPIK can be quite daunting but KORVIA was with me every step of the way. And if EPIj doesn't work out for you, they offer alternatives that are reliable and fulfilling. The support doesn't end when you get to Korea however, they also support you while you're there with things like getting a sim card and a bank account. If you are looking for a recruiter for Korea, look no further than Korvia.

Great company

Korvia Consulting is fantastic recruitment agency. They are professional and help you through your entire process of applying to work in Korea. I'm so happy I decided to go through them when it came to applying for the EPIK program, because I don't think I would be in South Korea now if it hadn't been for my recruiter who helped me through some very stressful situations. I would most definitely recommend them if you are looking into teaching in South Korea.

Great people with everything you need to know!

Brian was my recruiter and seriously helped me so much through the process. Like a lot of people, I ended up doing this process alone and without any former knowledge. Brian walked me through every step and was super patient when I was freaking out about the long wait times. EPIK even lost my application and Brian went out of his way to help make sure the issue was resolved. I would recommend Korvia to ANYONE thinking about coming to teach in Korea. They are the best!

A Godsend For A Clueless Foreigner

Korvia helped me tremendously as I began to show interest in teaching in South Korea. They found me a school in Suseong, Daegu, South Korea and communicated on my behalf to make sure everything went smoothly. Next thing I knew, I was on a plane to Incheon and a bus to Daegu. When I arrived a welcome kit came for me with essentials and Korvia stayed in contact with me. They didn't abandon me once I got to my school and I am thankful for that. I love the school I am at and am thankful that I had someone to help me find a school to teach at.

What would you improve about this program?
I wish the recruiters would have a location closer to me. I live in Daegu and all of the events are located in Seoul which is quite a distance from me to visit.

Extremely helpful.

The prospect of moving across the world to live and teach in a new country seemed at first very daunting but it was all made a lot easier by Korvia. I had a number of difficult questions about the various documents to gather and the legalization procedures to undertake and they were all answered quickly by my recruiter (Niki). I would certainly recommend Korvia, they arrange everything up to the details of the transport from the airport to your new school location and the support still continues even after you have started teaching in Korea. I recently received a welcome pack with a number of helpful items and the team let you know that if you have any issues you can always contact them. Overall, very helpful organization that are involved every step of the way with you.

Great experience

Korvia is thorough and helpful through the whole recruitment process. They are willing to try and help you if something with your school isn't going right. It's difficult to pick up and move abroad but they try to make it as stress free as possible. Everyone I've worked with has been very kind. They even helped me to arrange a moving company when I moved to another school in Korea and was having trouble arranging anything.

So happy I chose Korvia!

Korvia simplified every part of the process of teaching in South Korea. I am so glad that I chose Korvia because they were able to accommodate my needs and desires for teaching abroad, like being in a central location and teaching at a school that resonates with my values. I am so thankful to Jessi for reaching out to me with a job offer; she hit the nail on the head with everything she communicated with me. I really felt like Korvia was trying to understand and meet my preferences. I even got shuttled from the airport, no extra cost to me, and I have recently received a welcome package from Korvia, a most welcome and pleasant surprise :) You just cannot go wrong with a recruiting agency like Korvia!

Korvia is so Helpful!

I'm actually glad God pointed me in Korvia's direction. They are extremely helpful and persistent with the work they do. The staff is super friendly, they keep you in the loop about the status of your application no matter the stage. Also, if you are not accepted into one program, that's no problem for Korvia. They will continue to help you until you are accepted and it's to your own approval. They truly put in a lot of effort and you'll definitely experience wonderful benefits as a result: pre paid sim card for your phone, connect you to a reliable bank, and advice on how to get a new phone and phone plan. They really take care of you so no worries with them.

Korvia

Korvia was a great help in getting me here and keeping me here when it was time to renew or look for a new school. They have a very friendly and hard working staff. Whenever an application became complicated, they helped me through it as well as any other snags. They also are very professional and understand the stess that can come with moving to a new country. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to teach in Korea.

Best recruiting company!

KorVia has been absolutely amazing! They were there for me every step of the way. The application process, setting up interviews, visa arrangements, they did it all! Jessie was a star. I definitely would not be here without her. She was always prompt when answering any questions I had, and she truly went above and beyond to make the transition a smooth one. I love my job and city, and I'm so grateful that I chose KorVia!

What would you improve about this program?
KorVia is perfect the way it is!

Korvia is awesome!

I started working as an English teacher in Korea back in 2015 through the EPIK program. Even though I am very thankful to EPIK for getting me to Korea, I am super thankful that I switched to Korvia in 2017. The staff are amazingly helpful (Yay Ann!), I received multiple interview offers at different types of schools, and I got to pick the school that I liked the most. I just renewed with the school Korvia helped me get into and I absolutely love it here. Thank you, Korvia! :)
