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.

BA TESOL Program Director

The total cost of the program is 1,000 baht per credit, or 120,000 baht, over three years.

• Tuition Payment upon acceptance into the program: 15,000 baht
• Monthly payments of 3,000 for 35 months

You can proudly and legitimately claim you have a degree whenever asked. If you choose to teach English in other countries, so far only Saudi Arabia refuses this degree as they require all applicants to have a degree from their home country.

Do I get any vacation time? As we mentioned above, we will have classes for 14 weeks per year. If you wish to complete the degree in 3 years you must attend 10 weeks of classes per year and the other coursework listed. But the dates of attendance are quite flexible. You may choose to study for more than three years this is up to you .
