1) A Bachelors degree in any subject is required by the Vietnamese government. The degree can be of any major as long as it is a full bachelors degree from an English speaking university / college.
Don't have a degree? Consider taking our Cambodia TEFL Course operated in conjunction with our partner and teaching in Cambodia. It is one of the only countries in South East Asia that you can legally teach in without a degree.
2) Native English speaker with a passport from either the United States of America, United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, Australia, South Africa or New Zealand.
While at Ninja Teacher we believe that anyone can be a good teacher, there is a strong demand for native English speakers in Vietnam which makes it so we cannot ensure placement from those who are not from the above countries, and we are not willing to bring anyone out to Vietnam who we are not 100% confident we can help secure employment. In addition, some of our partner schools where program attendees conduct practical classes only allow native speakers, and this is an essential part of the program.
3) Be fit and healthy as a basic health screening is required to secure a work permit.
Any pre-existing physical or health conditions should be cleared with our enrollment manager.
4) Able to obtain a clean criminal background check from home country (some exceptions may apply).
