Learn as you go!

All you need to kick off your trip is a university degree and English language skills under your belt. It doesn’t have to be a Teaching Degree either. Either way, you will learn all the skills you need from a month long TESOL training course. Then you'll go home with 120 hours of training and an internationally recognised certificate to boot! Our Global Travellers can choose to take part in local Ho Chi Minh City for the course or head to Thailand for training and orientation! It’s only a hop, skip and a jump away to Hua Hin in Thailand and intakes are available every month. Get the ultimate Thai experience before heading off to Vietnam for placement and see the best of both worlds.

Great Option for Budget Travellers

The cost of living in Vietnam is low and salaries are high (in comparison). You can expect to make bank with a paycheck ranging from $1,100 to $1,500 USD per month.
