See below for photos of accommodation previously used in Seoul. Whilst the exact same option may not be available for your program start date, all participants can expect a similar standard of accommodation.
Places are limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Be sure to apply at least 6-10 weeks prior to your preferred start date.

INTERNSHIP PROGRAM – ‘Our award-winning flagship program’
PLACEMENT ONLY – ‘Our value option’
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.
CRCC Asia has partnered with Saint Peter’s University in Jersey City, New Jersey, to offer a U.S. transcript and award 3, 6, or 9 academic credits for our international internship programs. Students will be enrolled in CRCC-295: CRCC Asia Internship Course.
Credit awarded will be based on the successful completion of CRCC Asia’s Global Internship Curriculum, CareerBridge, proof of hours worked, reflective essay, and an evaluation from your host company supervisor.

"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."
