More Options for Teaching English Without a Degree

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.

Therefore, always apply to as many job openings as possible and you will see that you will have a lot of TEFL jobs to choose from. We’ll do our best to help you with this.
