FAQHere's what you need to know
Do I need insurance?
Unfortunately, we are currently unable to provide you with travel insurance. As such we require you to obtain travel insurance (from your choice of provider) to cover costs in case of injury or sickness and send us a scanned copy of proof of insurance prior to the start of the course.
I'm a parent and concerned about my child going abroad on their own - Please tell me more about how they will be cared for?
While some of our cultural activities may include trips to establishments that serve alcohol we preselect our places and always pick a safe environment for our students. The legal drinking age in Korea is 19 and both establishments and our team will ensure that no underage students will be allowed to drink alcohol. Whilst Korea is one of the safest countries in the world, we understand that you may still have some concerns. For this reason, we have a homestay option, this not only gives a great environment for full cultural immersion but gives you the peace of mind that your son or daughter is being looked after in a family environment.
Do I need a VISA to join a study trip?
This can depend on which country you are travelling from. Korea’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has a list on their website detailing which countries do and do not require a visa. All information can be found on their website here including information how to apply for a visa if you require one. Please note that if you do require a visa we are unable to help you with this.
Can you help me apply for a visa?
Unfortunately, due to the broad range of requirements for different countries, we are unable to help you with visa applications.
Are transportation fees included in the trips?
For the Youth Korea trip, activity transportation fees will be covered and a transportation card will be provided. These are not included for our other trips in Korea.
Are meals included in the price?
