It should be listed on the university's website alongside their regular requirements.

Probably best to try contact each university directly and enquire that way.

I think SK is quite a beautiful country, but in all honesty I'm not sure what you're looking to get into as most 1st world countries tend to have pretty good R&D and technology. It seems a little vague of a reason imo as every country has "good technology".

Plus the problem with Korea is that you need to learn the language, which means commitment for at least a solid few years of grinding reading, writing and speaking to be able to get what the lecturer is saying.

I'm not sure what the rankings are like in Korea and what the employee opportunities are like, so while I don't want to spoil your dreams, I hope you're being realistic and have a plan in mind . Will Korea give you something competitive over other countries?

I believe it can provide opportunities within the engineering sector, because in korea jobs schools and life there is highly competitive because in its ranking even though it might be 56 in the world for their technologically advanced university they still compete very well and tbh over their its like 80% cheaper than UK including uni fees. However I do have a back up plan for UK unis such as brunel, ICL, KCL and Southampton. I understand from your perspective however it is my dream to go korea. Plus most classes for international students are taught in english.
