International and Foreign schools are the two most common, albeit, expensive, options for foreign students. There is a difference between foreign and international schools.
. Foreign schools are specifically for international students and limits enrollment of ethnic Koreans, while International schools are open to everyone who can afford to pay the tuition. Majority of these schools are based on either American or British curriculum. All foreign passports are accepted in the schools and among the expat students are Koreans with foreign passports or who lived abroad and meet certain requirements. Entrances in these schools are sometimes based on competence and are determined by an entrance examination.
