Koh Samui Immigration: attendance for ED visa holders

A few schools have recently been closed in Phuket because of their students not present in class. Therefore, we would like to remind you that regular attendance at school is an obligatory condition for your staying in Thailand on an ED visa.

According to the current immigration rules in Koh Samui, all ED visa holders should attend at least 70 per cent of the course they are enrolled in. Students with poor attendance can get their visa annulled by the Immigration Office.  In order to avoid possible problems with your ED visa, please, make sure you come to class.

The school is not responsible for any visa issues caused by your continuous absence from class and, therefore, will not be able to help you resolve them.

What if you can’t make it?

Your ED visa validity and smooth visa procedure is our concern as well as yours. So, in order for us to be able to help you with any arising issues, we kindly ask you to notify the school managers about your absence, in case you can’t be present in class for any reason.

Any concern regarding to your ED Visa, please feel free to drop by at our office Mon – Sat 8:30 – 18:00. Or give us a call 077 248 228 and 086-947-2883 Khun Pat

Yearly MOE visit

Ministry of Education officials visited us at Koh Samui Language School (KSTVS) for our yearly inspection and quality control audit.

We discussed a number of things, such as the reasons for KSTVS continuous success over the years, recent innovations and upcoming projects. Here are a few key points of what we talked about:

School staff and material

We make a priority of hiring the best teachers we can, the material and text books we use in the classroom and the management we have (owner, principal and Thai manager) who work tirelessly to ensure our classes and programs are of the highest quality.

Keeping up with technology

We also talked about the use of modern technology in the classroom, including videos and audio for interactive lessons which we already include in our courses. We provide live online study one to one with a teacher, shared online material and group classes streamed on the internet, and one of our major goals is to develop in this field.

Business English and Exam preparation

We also discussed our vocational courses for hotels and business English, preparation for IELTS course and the appropriate application of work permits for our vocational school.

Not ready to rest

Our students can be assured that we work hard every year since we opened in 2003 to improve our standards. Although we are consistently awarded by the MOE for our performance, we will always try to improve more!

Learn Chinese and get an ED Visa

Chinese is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, one of the six official languages of the United Nations and is gaining increasing popularity both in the east and in the west.

Koh Samui Language School is happy to offer you Chinese classes with a highly qualified native teacher.

Learning Chinese in our school is another great opportunity to get an ED visa for up to one year.

Chinese ED Visa Course & Private Classes

Would you prefer to have all the teacher’s attention focused on you, or to study in a friendly environment of a small group? We are happy to provide you with both individual and group classes.

Chinese visa group course – 29,900THB (200 hours, one year)

or 39,900THB (400 hours, one year)

Private Chinese classes – 600THB per hour.

Any questions about the course, please feel free to drop by at our office Mon – Sat 8:30 – 18:00. Or give us a call 077 248 228 and 086-947-2883 Khun Pat

We regretfully learned that a few our students had got their visa extended only for one month instead of three despite having all the necessary documents from the school. We have found out that students in Koh Samui are currently getting a one month extension stamp regardless the school they are studying in.

While it is not the school’s fault and influencing the immigration office is not entirely within our command, we, at Koh Samui Language School, consider it our duty to keep you informed and help you sort it out.

Immigration checking schools in Koh Samui

All the schools in Koh Samui are being checked by the Immigration officers for conducting classes according to the schedule and having all the students in class. This procedure should last about a month after which, if you have been attending your classes as required, you can go to the Immigration office to get the remaining two months of your extension without having to pay extra.

We remind you that consistent attendance is obligatory for all ED visa holders.

We are apologizing for any stress this situation might have caused and hope that it will be resolved soon.

 

Stay in Contact with Koh Samui Language School for your classes

Dear students,

We kindly ask you to provide us with your valid contact details (phone number and email address) so that we can contact you quickly whenever there is any important information for you.

As you know, the immigration regulations in Koh Samui change every now and then, and being able to get in touch with you quickly can be essential for your next ED visa extension. Whether there are changes in the time table or any new requirements concerning your paperwork, we should keep you updated in order to avoid any complications with the authorities.

We would also like to remind you to contact us every time you can’t come to class.

Consistent attendance is a requirement for all ED visa holders.

Dear students,

We are happy to announce that our school is getting back to our usual time table and all classes will be held as originally scheduled.

Please, check when your next class is to be there on the right day and time.

Class Schedule Change

Attention, everybody!

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have to change our time table starting from  6th August, 2018 until further notice. This is because of the requirements of the Ministry of Education. We are currently working on solving this issue and getting back to the schedule convenient for everybody.

Please, check when your next class is not to miss it. We remind you that regular attendance is obligatory for all students who have an ED visa.
