Hello everyone,

I recently joined these forums as I am moving to Korea next month. I currently have a F4 visa and a TESOL certificate. I also obtained my Associates degree at a local college. I will be graduating from the University of Science, Arts, and Technology (USAT) with a Bachelors of Education. Here is some information about the university from their website:

USAT is fully accredited and licensed by the Ministry of Education of Montserrat. The University is also fully accredited with the UK based ASIC program. This accreditation is fully recognized in the United States, the United Kingdom, the Isle of Montserrat, and many other locations, as it focuses on International Accreditation.

I would like to know if I will have difficulty getting a job at a hagwon with this degree?

Thank You.

Just sell yourself/degree as being from the U.K. It is an overseas territory and part of the UK. When they ask where the university is just say in the UK. Never say anything more.

Exactly as the other fellow said. Say your degree is from the U.K. It is a part of the United Kingdom. Don't volunteer much more unless you have to.
