Be warned that the main campus of this uni is quite a distance from Daegu City.... It's located in Hayang Town. They do have two smaller campuses in Daegu though... Find out where you'll be! If you don't mind being out in the country a bit, it's a scenic campus, cleaner air and relaxed setting.

I taught at Daegu Catholic University many years ago.. I'd consider it a starter university teaching job... It's not perfect, but I created some friendships with Koreans there. They used to offer summer and winter English camps which were optional. Not sure about now though. The university was strong financially, but weren't generous with teachers' salaries back then.Their 400,000 housing allowance is average.. I've seen some universities offer only 200,000 KRW while others up to 500 or 800 KRW per month.
