Thanks for visiting our website. As you can see, we are in the process of updating the site's content and layout. Please bear with us! Our updated website will be available shortly.

Woosong University is under a hiring freeze, so we are not currently planning to hire new English as a Foreign Language (EFL) professors for the Fall 2021 semester. Though it is impossible to know for sure, we may be hiring for the Spring 2022 semester.

If we are hiring for the Spring 2022 semester, we will likely begin accepting applications in October 2021. We will use this website to provide information to prospective applicants and to recruit EFL professors.

COVID-19 has impacted our hiring process, of course, much like it has impacted the rest of the world.

In keeping with local governmental regulations, during our most recent campaigns, professors hired from outside of South Korea (and their accompanying dependents) had to quarantine for two weeks. Most professors did so in an on-campus apartment. Depending on the COVID-19 situation, those hired from overseas may have to quarantine when we are again hiring.

We follow all Korean-government regulations regarding COVID-19. You can stay up-to-date by visiting the Korean Ministry of Health and Welfare's website or that of the Korea Immigration Service. Both are in English.
