You may have heard rumors that Jeju is a barren rock, but nothing is further from the truth. As the Global Education City grows, we have increasing access to a range of lovely western and non-western restaurants, coffee shops, and shopping. The school is 15 minutes drive from a local town, which has dentists, chemists, supermarkets, food-markets, bakeries, dry-cleaning, sports equipment stores and toyshops. Slightly further afield, you can find cinemas, football grounds, night clubs and department stores. Jeju is often strikingly different to life in the UK or the US, but there are plenty of facilities within easy access.
