All our interns doing Sports coaching placements in Thailand live in comfortable accommodation.

You will either live in staff accommodation on-site – most international boarding schools in Thailand are surrounded by lovely landscaped gardens – or the school will rent you a private apartment in a good neighbourhood nearby. 

If you live on-site then food is usually provided at the staff canteen during term times and you are given a food allowance during school holidays. This gives you the choice of buying and cooking your own meals or eating out in local restaurants.

If you live in a rented apartment nearby the school then you’ll either have your food in the school staff canteen or be given a food allowance to buy your own food outside.

On Monday you’ll be met by one of your friendly work colleagues who will give you a thorough orientation and answer all your questions.

We’ll be in touch with you frequently to check how you’re getting on and we’re on hand 24/7 for emergencies.
