Yes! You should be able to find a job that will keep you going but I doubt if you will find such job just after arriving. You maybe able to find such job after about 6 months of your stay. You never sabi their language you wan work, how you go take do am na?
So, go with enough money that will keep you going for at least 4 to 5 months and by then you may have learnt the basic Korean language, so you can then look for work.


Please how can I apply for b.sc education in s.korea without going through scholarship and still have student visa ?

Search for schools that offer the course you want. From their website you can apply and if you are admitted you may be issued a student visa at the embassy.

Most national universities collect between 4 million won to 5 million won ( N1.6 million to N1.8 million naira) depending on your course.

To survive in 6 months including hostel fee, you should have about N900,000 to N1,200,000 this amount also depends on the kind of hostel (single occupant, or shared room, and how economical you are in spending money).

thanks for your wonderful contribution. Aside the Korean government scholarship, are there schools that offer master's scholarship to international students?

Yes, there are other scholarship programs run by many institutions apart from Government scholarship. but you qualify if you have a good grade in your first semester and other semesters, grade of about 3.5/5 or above or if your Test of Proficiency In Korea language is above level 3. You will get about 50% scholarship.

Aside flight which is about 600k plus, with 3 million you will be a big boy in Korea for 6 months until you get a job.

You mustn't have 3 million to be in Korea, when you start you will be surprised that during the finishing point you will find relatives that will be willing to assist you with the little they have and before you know it, you are in Korea.

I don't know about South Korea but in China before you get admitted you will be offered scholarship if your CGPA is anything around 3.50 to 4.5. 100% sure.

This one na big thing ooo
To get a land as lease or to buy?
This will require a lot of documents and paper work. I think they should also have a different policy for foreigners acquiring a land. Farm is done in a large scale in South Korea, if you want to operate as an individual you go carry plenty money oooo
But if you finally get all these approval and start farming what they consume most and supply to them, even though you will not meet up with their demand, you go hammer money be that.

Thanks for your honest reply. I believe one can start from a small portion and progress with time.

I've contacted some schools and most have replied. From their replies, their admission processes starts August (KAIST), September , soon (Chonnam National University), late October (Kyungpook University) and even November, for some. I'll like to know, is it possible for one to go for all the notarization and whatever before that time, or does one wait for that time before starting the "waka waka"?

@acadollar, I'll also need clarity on your statement about NO JOBS. Sustaining oneself during the first 6months might not really be an issue considering our currency is more than theirs, my issue is after that one is supposed to Atleast start working to keep body n soul together, instead of still calling home. Do u frankly mean that is impossible?

Thanks

Your chances of getting a visa depends on many things;
If you're above 25 years going for a language course in South Korea, it's suspicious as they will want to ask you why you don't want to learn it in Lagos or Abuja where they have Korean language centres. If you can give them a good reason, of which one of them is "that the reason you want to learn Korean language in Korea is to have the opportunity to learn their rich CULTURE in their environment other than learning their language", you maybe issued a visa. Many have travelled through language program route.
Try it, you might be lucky.

What school did you apply and how much is their application fee?

But I must tell you that going through the student route will give you about 60% to 70% cahnce of getting a visa, while through language route will give you about 40% to 50% chance of getting a visa.

Again, you will pay up to 700k for the language program fee, whereas, you can get some National universities that will take 1.1 million as tuition fee. It's about 400k difference, why not hustle for the 400k and go through student route?
