A few days ago I e-mailed with the Korean Education Centre in London about this year’s TOPIK just to hear about the deadlines and modes of payment and such things since the 2012 information was still on the website.
Basically they answered my questions (very quickly, actually), and their website has been updated to reflect the 2013 information.
Here’s what they said:
The exam date of TOPIK 2013 is 20th April. The venue will be SOAS in London.
Usually TOPIK takes place in London annually, only in April. However, it will be taking twice a year in UK from 2013. (20th April / 19th October). The application is open from January to February.
You can apply for two levels in the same time.
The exam fee is 25 pounds. Only check is acceptable.
You can send your application between 1st February-15th February.
Please see our website.
For those who are interested in sitting the TOPIK in London, you can find the application form and the information you need here.
And I need to speak to my bank about that check. Writing checks in a foreign currency is something I haven’t done before so I had hoped a bank transfer would do…
