Application procedures
 
Hallym students who are finished their first year can apply to live in HID. The HID program is a demanding one. It is difficult, at times impossible, to balance the time demands of HID with other programs that demand a great deal of students time. If  you are not sure that you can commit to a full semester of work in class and in HID, this program is not well suited to you.  In particular, senior students who are actively seeking employment and students participating in teacher training programs should not apply for HID. Although some graduate students have successfully managed both HID and their major work, it is a difficult challenge. Graduate students are encouraged to think very carefully about how well they can balance both commitments.
Near the end of both the first and second semesters, an application period for the following semester is announced on the IGE and Hallym homepages. During that period, students interested in applying for positions in HID should follow the instructions as posted. Entry into HID is based on a combination of language ability, overall scholastic merit, and perceived potential to contribute to and benefit from the program. All applicants must pass an interview in their second language.

Students who live in HID for the first semester have preference to live in HID during the second semester provided they receive a passing grade in their foreign languages class.
