Paperwork for New Faculty
Please fill out the following two forms so that your documents can be processed in a timely manner. Scroll down to see detailed explanations of the necessary steps.
Detailed Explanation of the Required Steps
These are the steps for processing your paperwork and arrival:
You will provide the required documents. HR will prepare a contract.
If you are happy with the terms of the contract, you will send a scanned copy of the signed contract.
After receiving your signed contract, HR will issue you a "Visa Number". You will need this number to apply for a Korean Work Visa at the Korean embassy in your country.
It takes between 2-3 weeks for the Korean embassy in your country to issue the visa.
If you are an international (non-Korean) faculty, the school will provide you with accommodation. The size of the apartment depends on availability and family size. Click here for some pictures of sample apartments.
HR will issue you a 8-digit Faculty ID which is necessary to access the Learning Management System (LMS), Attendance System, and several other systems used at SolBridge.
HR will also create a SolBridge email address for you. Please use this email for all official communication (e.g., with the school's administrators, faculty members, and students). You can choose the 'something' part in firstname.lastname@example.org. The option to choose your email ID is in this form.
When your SolBridge email is activated, you can use it to create a Zoom account. The Zoom account you create with your SolBridge email has an Education license and has no time limit on the meetings. Click here to see how a Zoom account with Education license looks like.

After you get your official SolBridge email, please contact Prof Daniel Corks (email@example.com) who will create an account for you on MySolBridge (click here). This is a platform we use to manage our interaction with students (e.g., providing updates about events, setting up office hours and interviews, etc).
Resident Registration Card
Normally, the visa that your embassy issues is valid for a single-entry. Once you arrive in Korea, you will apply for a "Resident Registration Card" (formerly know as "Alien Registration Card", ARC) which will allow you multiple entries without any restriction.
After your arrival in Korea, it takes 3-5 weeks (depending on how busy the immigration office is) to get your Resident Card.
