TEFL TESOL Course Thailand - Chiang Mai

As a premier tourist destination in Thailand, Chiang Mai offers many interesting sights - both within the city and in the surrounding areas. Chiang Mai has long been known as the "Rose of the North'. It is the hub of Northern Thailand. With a population of over 170,000 in the city proper (but more than 1 million in the metropolitan area), it is Thailand's fifth-largest city. Located on a plain at an elevation of 316 m, surrounded by mountains and lush countryside, it is much greener and quieter than the capital and has a cosmopolitan air and a significant expat population.

TEFL Training Centre in Chiang Mai

UniTEFL is situated in a state of-the-art facility close to the centre of Chiang Mai, the airport and the city's biggest and most popular shopping centre. Our TEFL training centre is designated to be environmentally friendly and has all the amenities that you could require. Our facility is within easy reach of the local schools that TEFL trainees complete their eight teaching practices.  These schools provide for the underprivileged or are linked to a temple and are very welcoming of foreign teachers.  Our long term commitment to our community and partnership with these schools provides students’ opportunities they would not have otherwise received.

Country Costs

It is possible to survive on a budget of £10 per day in Thailand and this is of course one of the reasons for its popularity amongst tourists and travellers. Thai food and drink is cheap and basic accommodation is abundant. Costs will rise if you want to eat Western food and stay in more expansive resorts and hotels. It is possible to find worthwhile entertainment to meet even the most stringent of budgets.

Visa Requirements

Visitors to Thailand are required to have a passport valid for at least six months from the date of arrival. Student entry is permitted on a Tourist Visa allowing you to stay for a maximum of sixty days. This can be extended for an additional thirty days at the discretion of the Thai Immigration Office. Holders of Tourist Visas are required to enter the country within ninety days of the visa being issued.

On entering Thailand you may be asked to prove that you are in possession of a ticket for return or onward travel. In addition, you may be asked to prove that you have sufficient funds to cover the cost of your stay. Please note that you are required to pay a departure tax before you are able to leave Thailand.

Health & Safety

The standard of health care is surprisingly high in Thailand especially in areas with a high tourist population. Whilst vaccinations are not strictly necessary for entry into Thailand it is advisable to consult your doctor regarding anti-malaria medications well in advance of your departure.

The risk of violent crime in Thailand is one of the lowest in South East Asia although petty theft and street crime does occur in many areas. Visitors to the country are advised to take out insurance coverage and to exercise common sense and caution with personal possessions.
