Apart from our program fees that help you get settled in Vietnam, it is suggested that you always carry a certain amount of pocket money so as to survive here during the time of your program.
In most cases, how much you will spend depends mostly on what you want to purchase or the services you want to use; however, in general the cost of living in Vietnam is around 50% lower than in the US.
Do you believe with just $ 600 USD/month you will have basically everything you need for your new life abroad, from housing, food, transportation to leisure activities???
The following tables reveal the reasons why you can make it happen in Vietnam:
By accommodation, we mean a safe and private room which usually consists of the following conditions and is a great shelter for your new life in Vietnam. It is not a place for you to just sleep, but truly your second home in the world.
You can check out further details and pictures of the different types of rooms you can choose for your stay in Vietnam HERE.
Once you are in Vietnam, our program coordinator and local buddies will guide you to use some of the most popular means of transportation in the country with which you can easily commute to work and travel around by yourself. Fare for each of them is shown as below:
C. FOOD & DRINKS
Even though it mostly depends on what you want to order and whether you want to go out or eat at home, a meal in Vietnam will usually cost you from $ 2 to $ 5 US dollars only. Below are some of the most famous things to eat and drink in Vietnam, you might want to take them as a reference then:

I get lots of support from my Vietnamese local buddies and become real friends in spite of different interests.
The whole experience of doing internship in Vietnam, living and meeting the people in this beautiful country will be a memory I’ll always remember. Overall, I was extremely satisfied with the Internship Service by SE Vietnam (the accommodation, orientation, city tour, visa support, and so on).
I felt very satisfied with the service SE Vietnam provided for my Nursing Internship at Ho Chi Minh Hopspital of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation. I was clear about the rules and expectations required of me during my placement.
I would definitely recommend this program to my friends/colleagues or anyone that are interest in doing internship abroad in Vietnam.
Student Exchange Vietnam is always so supportive and has made me feel at home during my Social Work Internship. Thank you so much and I encourage you all to keep changing lives and doing what you do.
