Accommodation is affordable all over the city. Most teachers live in studios or one-bedroom apartments, which range from $150-$250/month. A coordinator in Phnom Penh will assist you with finding accommodation when you arrive.

I’m nervous about moving abroad!

What type of visa will I be working on?
You’ll be on a business visa. We will provide you with the paperwork and instructions on how to apply.
Will I have insurance?
The school will provide insurance to cover any accidents that happen while you’re at school, but we recommend you purchase separate health insurance to cover you outside of school as well.
Is Cambodia safe?
Cambodia is a very safe country. However, just like in any country, you should exercise caution and practice good judgment: Be aware of your surroundings, keep an eye on your belongings, don’t walk alone late at night, etc.
Will I be able to meet other teachers on the program?
Yes! This program offers a great community of foreign teachers and Cambodian support staff. You’ll attend a group orientation, live with another teacher, and have regularly sponsored cultural and social events! All teachers are placed in schools with other teachers.
Are there any required vaccinations for Cambodia?
Make sure you’re up to date on all of your standard vaccines, and check the CDC website for up-to-date information on any additional vaccines you should get.
