Seoul Placement-Only Dates
We also offer a Placement-Only Program for 30, 60, 90 days all year around.
You can decide a start date that is convenient for you.
Placement-Only Programs include guaranteed internship placement & emergency support, but exclude accommodation, visas, and events.
Program Fees (All in USD)
In order to begin your internship, you will need to submit an electronic application to our program. You can do this on our Apply page.
Upon receiving your application, it will be reviewed by your nearest Regional Team who will assess your suitability for our programs.
Once your application is reviewed, our Admissions Advisers will reach out to you via email to schedule an Advising Session.
Those applicants who are successful at the application review stage will be invited for an Advising Session with one of our Admissions Advisers. The Advising Session will be 20-30 minutes long where we will ask:
- Your interest in our programs
- Your relevant past working and voluntary experience
- Your sector choices and preferred type of host company
- Your personal and professional goals
4. Program Confirmation
A few days after your Advising Session, you’ll be informed of the outcome of your application to join our internship program by email. If you are successful, you’ll receive an offer which will formally invite you to join the program and details on how to confirm your place with a Program Acceptance Fee.
5. Placement Confirmation
Once you have submitted your Acceptance Fee and First Installment, our Placement teams will officially start reaching out to our Host Company partners to confirm your company and job description with our Placement Supervisors. The sooner you confirm your placement on our programs, the sooner we can get you more information on your placement! Please note that early applicants get priority for most competitive host company opportunities.
With CRCC Asia’s Placement First Guarantee, you will only be required to pay the final installment when you have received a confirmed placement from your Adviser.
If you have any questions about this procedure please feel free to contact us for more information.
Your Adviser will work with you to ensure we have all of your relevant travel details (flights, insurance, special requests, etc) and prepare you for your arrival in your program destination.
A week before your Program Start Date, our on-the-ground Program Management staff will introduce themselves and provide you with all the necessary information for your arrival. We look forward to welcoming you to our Programs!
An internship in Korea that is less than 90 days without remuneration is regarded as a voluntary activity. If you are citizen of the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the EU, you are only required to apply for a visa exemption or tourist visa.
If you are citizen from another country you may be required to apply for a Working Holiday Visa. Please check this link to ensure you meet the requirements for a Working Holiday Visa.
Whilst we provide guidance on the visa application process, the cost of your Korea visa is not included in the Program Fee. It is recommended you submit the visa application at least 4 weeks prior to your Program Start Date. Immigration regulations are constantly changing so it is advised you pay attention to updates on the aforementioned list.

"Interning abroad through CRCC Asia has taught me the importance of networking and being able to sell myself as an asset. Therefore, one of the most important aspects of the experience was my ability to build a professional network of contacts all over Shenzhen as well as other parts of China. Efficiently leveraging this network will help me during my post-graduation career search. Though I may decide not to seek a career in China, many of my new network contacts have other connections all over the world. So, doors may be opened to things and places I never dreamed possible."
