- About Deakin
Chiang Mai in the north with a population of 1.6 million people has a striking mountain backdrop, over 300 temples and an old-world historical charm. Chiang Mai is Thailand's second-largest city and was founded in 1296 and you can still see the centuries old moat that encircled the original city. Student-teaching at the Prince Royal’s College is very different from teaching in Australia as most of the co-operating teachers are Thai and teaching and learning in subject areas other than English is in the Thai language.
The Kingdom of Thailand draws more visitors than any other country in Southeast Asia with its combination of remarkable natural beauty, temples, hospitality, spicy cuisine and ruins of ancient kingdoms. Deakin’s Global Experience Programs combines all that Thailand has to offer with two incredible practicum experiences that enhance pre-service teachers’ pedagogical knowledge, cultural understanding and experience teaching students very different from themselves.
