No University Degree? No Problem!

You do not need a Bachelor’s degree to take the TEFL certificate course, but please note that in some countries you will need a degree. It varies from country to country and employer to employer so contact us for more information. 

Non-native English Speakers

If you are a non-native English speaker, you can certainly apply to the course and teach English abroad. Dozens of non-native speakers have taken our course and have gone on to teach abroad. For example, they’ve taught in the Czech Republic, parts of Asia, Latin America, parts of the EU, or their home country. We’ll do the best to assist you in finding a job and look forward to welcoming you.
