Diverse Choices provides an exciting opportunity for students who are on a gap year or recently graduated students to have the experience to work & learn in a beautiful island – Taiwan located in South East Asia.
It is a fun and educational programme for British students to learn from different perspectives with also an opportunity to explore the country at a minimum cost.
We have a genuine passion for inspiring students and expanding their global perspective through this educational experience abroad. This program is geared to students who wish to experience a fun-filled environment and have a truly memorable life / learning experience.
You will be placed in a school/teaching environment, interacting with local students during teaching hours. There will be a regular monthly allowance and accommodation during this time will be provided.
You will be working approximately 25 hours a week in a local high school or teaching establishment in Taiwan Monday to Friday (excluding weekends & national holidays). You will be integrated with local students by joining and interacting with them in group discussions, case studies, school activities, culture sharing and language exchanges.
You will stay in a homestay accommodation providing a private room, 2 meals per day, utilities, internet and occasional excursion. This is a great way to learn about local cultures and get to know the area a lot quicker with the help of a local guide.
Each host family has been interviewed, screened, vetted, and background checked to ensure the highest quality standards. Living with a host family will help you adjust to life in Taiwan.
Each month you will be provided a salary in local currency. This will help to cover the costs of travelling and eating out from your accommodation should you wish to explore the island. If saved you will be able to cover the costs of the initial booking and maybe even the costs of travelling (depending on the initial flight costs).
We have a dedicated agent in Taiwan who will be your point of contact for any query you may have during your entire stay. We will provide assistance to ensure your learning / working experience in Taiwan is pleasant and memorable.
Our local support service includes:
- Airport pickup and accommodation
- School and local city orientation
- Help with your everyday life in Taiwan
- Student Work Assistance Program
