| BA-TESOL Course Modules Description
| Bachelors of Arts in TESOL Degree Plan
Want to teach in Thailand but no degree? Take advantage of our free Job Referral Assistance and earn as you learn. We have connections with many schools looking for good teachers, with or without degrees. Most native-speaking foreign teachers in Thailand earn between 35,000 and 50,000 baht per month. Please be aware that, although thousands of teachers are currently teaching English in Thailand without a degree, it is technically illegal to teach English without a Non-B visa and a work permit.
Already teaching in Thailand without a degree? Keep working (and earning)! You must attend only 30 weeks of class over a three year period to complete your degree, all during traditional school holiday periods. And, with an ED visa, you save all that time and money previously spent on visa runs.
