How much does a college advisor make in Thailand?

Cite this journal as: Eden, S. W. (2018). How much does a college advisor make in Thailand? Retrieved from http://sw-eden.net

I work in a public university in Thailand. Most of the teachers in our school have to be the advisor of a couple classes of students. A class consists of about 50 students. I know from my friend that these teachers are paid once a semester. I am not in that system, but I just want to share what my friend told me.

My friend is a lecture in a management program. She is an advisor of students in the weekend program. Another teacher in the same program is the advisor of the students in the evening class of weekday program.

I think this may confuse you, if you are from other countries, like the US, Australia, or some from Europe. In Thailand, many universities separate the students by their time that they come to class. In my school, there are 3 of them. First are those who have to study during the day time of Monday to Friday. Second are those who have to study in the evening of Monday to Friday. Third are those who study in Saturday and Sunday.

Teachers who are the advisors of students in the evening of Monday to Friday will be paid about 60 to 90 USD per a semester. However, those who are the advisor of Saturday and Sunday classes, will be paid only 60 cents per a student per a semester. My friend told me that she got paid only 7 USD per a semester, because her class consists of 12 students.

She feels that the wages are not fair for those who gave to come to school during weekend. I do not know much about this issue, but I think it is good that I am not in this system. I am the advisor of those who are in the day class of weekday. I do not get paid, since my salary covers all the day time.

The Palace of All Ants

Again with a nature experience in my childhood at Sesawechvidhaya School. We were about gread 2 or grade 3, and we played with ants. 2 kinds of the most dangerous ants in school were, Kan Fire (meaning : fiery itchy) and Tanoi (the biggest red ants). Each owner of each ant nest would find the food for his ants. The bad side destroyed the ant nest of good side. This was something they should not had done. Some of them pour the water into my ant nest. Some of them catch other ants and put them into their ant nest, and their ants killed the new ants. One of my friend in my side brought his food to school everyday. The bad side knew this, too. They put the nest of big red ants into their school bag. They lay it near my friend’s bag which had food inside. And all ants moved from their bag into my friend’s bag. My friend got bitten, and did not have to food for lunch in that day.

I was sure that those bad guys brought the big red ant in their bag. Those red ants have the nest with many leaves in the tree, and easy to cut out from the tree. Those red ants will not go up to the 4th floor in our classroom, because their habit is living in flat land.

My ant nest got destroy more than twist, and everytime, it got destroyed, it would be bigger, and scarier. The surface of it was about 4-5 square feets, with many complex tube into the ground. My ants were Kan Fire; they walked very slow and truly strong. The food that I liked to give them was white ant or termite. At least I help the school safe from termite. Regularly, the ants do not destroy the termit house (white-anthill), but if I just punch the hole into the termite house, the ants will go into it, and eat all termites.
