FAQ - Teaching English Courses

Why take a TEFL course?

Having a TEFL course under your belt opens you up to loads of different opportunities - you can travel and work in so many locations across the world, such as Thailand, Vietnam and Hong Kong - there are even guaranteed teaching jobs available each month for a variety of countries. It'll look really impressive on your CV for future jobs as it's a recognised qualification, and learning as part of a TEFL course is nothing like the bland learning environment you used to have at school. It's interactive, and you'll get personalised feedback from your own TEFL tutor, who will ensure you feel totally prepared before you leave to teach overseas. 

Can I do a TEFL course without a degree?

Yes and no, you can take the course itself without having a degree, but you need to research the country you want to teach in first, as some countries require you to have a degree in order to obtain a visa, where others don't.

Do I need teaching experience to take a TEFL course?

Absolutely not - some people are great teachers without having any experience. All you need is drive, passion and a willingness to learn - and a good understanding of the English language, of course. If you're not a native English speaker you'll have to show how much you know.

Are there any eligibility requirements for the TEFL courses and how long does it take?

There's no long list of eligibility requirements in order to take a TEFL course, as long as you've got the determination, passion and willingness to learn, you can learn a TEFL course. You don't need to be a native English speaker, but if you aren't you'll be asked to demonstrate how well you know the English language before being accepted on to the course. 

This totally depends on how quick or slow you want to go - you've got between 6 weeks and 3 months to complete the course, as we understand you need to be able to fit it around other commitments. Combined courses are slightly different, as the classroom part of it is done over a weekend - but you get to pick the place and the time.
