TEFL Certificate Entry Requirements


It is not necessary to have a degree, to be a native speaker of English, to be able to speak a foreign language, or to have any previous teaching experience. To be considered for this course, you will need to:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Demonstrate your ability to cope with the academic demands of the course eg. a university degree (in progress or finished) or work experience.
  • Have good enough health to deal with the demands of an intensive course of training, travel and working abroad.

Because the CELTA course involves teaching learners with a B2/C1 level of English, we can only accept applicants with a C1.2 level of English or higher.

The following qualifications are accepted as proof of language ability (if they are less than two years old):

  • Cambridge C1 Advanced: Grade A or B
  • Cambridge C2 Proficiency: Grade A, B or C
  • Cambridge IELTS: Overall band score 7.5 and no less than 7.0 in any skill
  • TOEFL iBT: Overall score 105 and no less than 25 in any skill

If you do not possess one of the above qualifications, then your English language will be assessed throughout the application process.
