A degree isn’t required for the TEFL Worldwide Prague course or for teaching English in many countries across the globe. We’ve had hundreds of graduates with no degree take our course and go on to teach English.
One thing to note is that TEFL courses are university-level courses and are intense, with lots of information packed into just 4 weeks so you need to be committed to working hard during this time. Our staff and trainers are here to support and help you every step of the way!
So where can you teach without a degree? Popular destinations where people without degrees go on to teach English include:
There’s a possibility for some nationalities (UK, Canadian, Australian, but unfortunately not American) to get a working holiday visa for Japan. This must be applied for in your home country. You can find out more about this at the Japanese Embassy in your country.
If you are an EU citizen without a degree you will have plenty of options to teach all throughout the EU.
There are some countries where a degree is required in order to get the working visa. These include Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, parts of China, most of the Middle East. Other countries may say that they prefer a degree, but because the demand is so high, they will hire teachers who do not have one.
You just have to apply to as many schools as possible and follow up with them. The more countries that you apply to the better your chances. We’ll do our best to help you with this.
