How to Pay

Before You Pay

Before making any payment to IH Chiang Mai, we wish to advise you of several points

  • Payments for teacher training course can be made in US dollar or Thai baht (THB) or Pounds Sterling (GBP) – please see below for details of prices for each currency. Please note that prices are subject to change without prior notice.
  • No payment should be made by any applicant until a letter of acceptance has been issued by IH Chaing Mai confirming the applicant’s place on a course.
  • A place on a course cannot be confirmed until a deposit has been paid.
  • Once paid, deposits are non-refundable.
  • Once a deposit has been paid, the candidate’s place on the course is guaranteed up until the date at which the balance payment is due 1 month before the start date. Failure to make the balance payment into our account by this date may result in forfeiture of the place. Applicants applying less than 1 month before the start of the course will have to make the full payment upon receipt of the acceptance letter.
  • Should a participant withdraw from a course less than 1 month before its commencement, the course fees will be forfeited along with the deposit.
  • All deposits and fees will be refunded in the event of a course being cancelled and if subsequent courses are not suitable for the candidate.
  • Candidates should understand that there is a risk of failing and that in such an event, no money can be returned.

Payment Confirmation

Receipt of payments made will be confirmed by email from  within 3 working days. If you do not hear from us within that time please contact us by email or phone to let us know.
