Teaching in Thailand with Travel Grad

Travel Grad have been super helpful throughout the whole process of applying and moving out to Thailand. Including replying to messages at all hours of the day and night. I had a phone call with Andrew at the start who talked through all the different options and what to expect. Two days later I had signed on to move out to Thailand and I haven't looked back. It was the best decision I've made! The process before moving was made fairly stress free and once you are out here there is so much opportunity to travel and meet lots of people doing the same sort of thing as you. I have been here two and half months so far and its absolutely flown by!

Pros
  • Meet lots of like minded people
  • Lots of opportunity to travel around
  • Experience the real Thai culture and meet lots of lovely locals
Cons
  • The pay isn't as much as it is in other countries

Thailand

TravelGrad was a great help from the start, as soon as I spoke to them they put me at ease about the entire process. They were a massive help with sorting visas and paperwork and are always available to contact. I didn’t encounter any problems and have now been in Thailand for two months and I am still having a great time. If you sign up to teach abroad with TravelGrad I’m sure you’ll have a great experience.

Thailand TEFL

I cannot recommend TravelGrad enough. They have made the dream of living and teaching out in Thailand a reality. They help with every step of the process, from getting your TEFL qualification, to visa applications and school placements, TravelGrad have been there every step of the way. The support offered from TravelGrad is impeccable and I can’t thank them enough. They were so friendly and welcoming and were super quick and responsive to questions and queries. The continued in-country support is and additional added bonus- they really are there every step of the way and will do everything they can to ensure you have the best experience!

Pros
  • Helping with visa applications, dbs checks etc
  • Continued in country support
  • Group chat prior to arrival to have a chance to make friends prior to moving

Travel grad

Travel grad have been great at guiding me through the whole process of moving to Thailand. They created loads of helpful documents and kept me updated with everything along the way. Whilst I have been in Thailand they have constantly checked in and made sure I am doing well and everything is ok. I am loving life in Thailand so far and enjoying my province. They have also put me into contact with a number of other teachers working in Thailand who I have made great friends with and will be friends with for life.

Pros
  • Place
  • People
  • Guidance

TravelGrad’s Thailand Tefl taster

TravelGrad have been super efficient and helpful from the moment I signed on and now in Thailand. When I had some issues at the start of my time in Thailand, TravelGrad were super speedy in replying to my concerns and also got in contact with everyone that needed to be contacted. This helped resolve my issues quickly and I was then able to go on and starting enjoying Thailand - which I have been! Thailand is an incredible place, and I’m grateful for the help of TravelGrad ! I would recommend!!!!

Pros
  • People - they are unbelievable, kind and helpful.
  • The culture and all the different aspects and levels to if. It is incredible to see, and one that you can immerse yourself into, even if you are not religious.
  • The food - the flavours of Thai food are exceptional
Cons
  • Being so far away from home (but you grow so much as a person)
  • Time difference from home - can sometimes make you feel lots further away
