Payment methods...

Paying for your TESOL/TEFL training course with AVSE-TESOL is simple and secure. Within 72 hours of receiving your application form, an AVSE team member will contact you by email and either:

  • Offer you a place in your chosen course;
  • Invite you to participate in a SKYPE discussion; or
  • Respectfully decline your application.

All non-Vietnamese and Cambodian citizens who are offered a place in a TESOL/TEFL course at AVSE must pay a deposit of US $750.00 within 7 days to secure the spot. The required deposit for Vietnamese or Cambodian citizens is US $300.00. Note that AVSE does have commercial arrangements in place where the initial deposit may be less. As soon as your deposit is received, AVSE-TESOL will provide written confirmation by email. Importantly, the balance of your course fee must be paid 10 days before the scheduled start date.

You can pay for your TESOL/TEFL training with AVSE-TESOL by using one or a combination of three different methods:

If there is another payment method you would prefer to use, feel free to run your idea by us and if it’s feasible, we’ll go with it. Once you have identified the payment method that’s good for you, contact the payment team at AVSE-TESOL via the following email address and they’ll provide you with the necessary details:

Cash or by card (over the counter):

You can pay in cash or by card (over the counter) for your TESOL/TEFL course if you’re already located in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City or Phnom Penh with a quick visit to our training centre during our usual office hours: Monday to Friday 8:00am – 12:00pm, 2:00pm – 5.00pm. Unfortunately, like other businesses in Vietnam and Cambodia, AVSE is unable to accept a card payment over the telephone.

If you wish to pay in cash or by card (over the counter), it’s a good idea to lock in an appointment time beforehand. You can do this by sending an email to:

Bank to bank transfer:

You can pay for your course by transferring funds directly to our bank account in Vietnam (Sacombank) from anywhere in the world. We encourage our customers to use TransferWise because of their relatively low fees, superior security and simplicity.


Covering the fees associated with your TESOL/TEFL course using PayPal is both quick and simple. PayPal supports payments in 100+ currencies and is available to any person with an email address or a cellphone number. It’s important to note that PayPal’s fees tend to be higher than other methods, around 4% per transaction.
