Known for its chaotic roads, vibrant markets, delicious street food and long history, Hanoi is a special city. The Vietnamese capital is home to over 7 million people and a colorful mix of cultures, which have each left their mark on the city. The one-of-a-kind combination of Southeast Asian, French and Chinese influences give Hanoi a mesmerizing character that you simply won’t find elsewhere. If you’re looking for history, culture and excitement, you’re in the right place. Here’s what to expect from a teaching job in Hanoi.

Complete a TEFL course before arrival in Vietnam

The Program

If there’s one thing for sure, it’s that you should never have to pay to work. And with us you won’t have to; but, to be able to offer the support, guidance, training, and resources we’re known for, we require all participants to pay a program service fee.

Program Fee

You’ll need a TEFL before you can start teaching in Vietnam. If you don’t have one, the fee will include a course and cost £530. If you do, this drops to £450.


The program fee includes support from the moment you apply to the end of your placement in getting a visa, finding a job, and settling in.
