Leave a Review of HUFS Korea

Don't confuse HUFS university with the language institute there.... Last thing you want is to think you'r joining a university and you end up at a hagwon.... I
I taught in the HUFS English department and English Education department and enjoyed my time there. The salary, working conditions and respect from students, staff and administration was good. If however, you work at the university hagwon, it's a completely different situation. I can't speak for the conditions specifically, but some of my friends worked there and it wasn't that great. I think salary and benefits are similar as noted by the 16 week vacation period in the ad above and the generous housing allowance. Avoid the HUFS cyber learning program though. This is more of a hagwon style teaching program.
