Registration Procedures for
International TEFL Academy Courses
1. Speak with a live Admissions Advisor
A) This is critical to gain an understanding of hiring procedures and international job markets for English teachers. The following considerations may affect your plans and opportunities for teaching English abroad:
Citizenship, age, educational level, hiring cycle, interviewing procedure (in-person or phone interviews), and more.
Review the list of the most popular countries for teaching English in our
country comparison chart
. It is extremely important that all of our students understand the hiring procedures and eligibility requirements for
English teaching positions
prior to enrolling in a TEFL class.
Non native English speakers will need to read and understand where they can and probably cannot find employment as an English teacher,
review this information
Also, while we provide
lifetime job search guidance to our graduates
you must have a clear understanding of your responsibilities for interviewing and obtaining a teaching position.
You can call us now at 773-634-9900, 877-610-1337, UK +44-203-318-6930 or
and be assigned a personal advisor.
B) To Understand the requirements to take a TEFL course:
A minimum of a High School Diploma or GED.
Fluent and proficient English Skills.
Non-native speakers will be required to write a brief essay and interview over the phone to verify their English skills prior to enrollment.
Ability to complete a university level course that incorporates extensive reading, homework, papers, quizzes, tests, lessons plans, and student teaching/observation (practicum). All work is graded and each student must pass the class and fulfill the practicum requirement to earn their certification.
Those without a four-year degree are able to enroll in our
Online TEFL class.
Requirements and admissions policies for the
Four-week Onsite Courses
vary from course-to-course and non-native English speakers or native speakers without a four-year degree will be considered on a case-by-case basis and may be required to write an essay and/or interview. Please speak with your TEFL Admissions Advisor to determine whether you are eligible to enroll in the course of your choice.
2. Enroll in a TEFL course in advance before it is filled
Online TEFL courses
are limited to 20 students and typically fill two weeks in advance.
Four-week Onsite TEFL courses
are limited to 12 students and often fill 2-3 months in advance (Fall courses in Europe fill 4-6 months in advance).
We strongly recommend that students enroll at least 90 days prior to their desired course start date to secure their spot and have ample time to make travel arrangements.
3. Registration is a two-step process
A) Pay the class tuition to reserve your spot
Online class tuition is paid in full.
Onsite courses require a deposit to enroll; the remaining balance will be due to the onsite course director 30 days prior to the class start date.
