Packed with history in its name alone, the city boasts a beautiful mix of traditional and modern architecture. The economy has boomed in the last decade; however, make sure you carry cash as you may struggle to find somewhere that takes card! Diverse and multi-cultural, the city is inclusive and welcome – it also helps that Vietnam is known for its extensive coffee culture, so you don’t have to compromise on your favourite blend.

You can also enjoy the mix of Vietnamese and French architecture, the delicious street food or even a relaxing massage in one of the many Ho Chi Minh City spas. If you ever want to feel like you’re in Europe, take a trip down to the Central Post Office, which was designed by no other than Gustave Eiffel!

To be eligible to apply, you’ll need to:

Passport holder from the UK, Ireland, US, New Zealand, Australia, Canada or South Africa

Complete a TEFL course before arrival in Vietnam

Have received an internationally-recognized vaccine

Hold at least a bachelors degree (in any subject)


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.
