Teach English overseas even without a degree

There are plenty of TESOL teaching opportunities for those without a university degree. Because the demand for English teachers is so great, many countries accept TESOL certification in lieu of a university degree.

TESOL - Teach English without a degree

All you need is proficiency in English and a recognised TESOL qualification - you don't need any teaching experience and you don't even need to understand the local language. In most countries there is no age limit (China restricts work visas to teachers under the age of 60), and our TESOL courses can provide you with the required qualification in just two weeks.

Where can you teach?

There are plenty of job opportunities for you around the world, including in:

  • Vietnam
  • China
  • Cambodia
  • South America
  • Russia
  • Europe (if you are aged 18-30 and have a European Union passport)

In just a matter of weeks, you could be exploring the Forbidden City, cruising down Halong Bay, visiting imperial palaces in western Russia, or even learning how to samba in Rio de Janeiro - the possibilities are almost endless. All while being paid!

Wherever you go, you'll be held in high esteem, as teachers are respected in these countries.

What benefits do you get?

Exact benefits depend on your contract and the country you're teaching in but as a TESOL-certified teacher, you can generally expect:

  • Great salaries compared to the low cost of living
  • Short working weeks (20-25 hours per week is normal)
  • Accommodation in some cases
  • High hourly rates for private tutoring

TESOL - Teach English without a degree

Why do you need TESOL certification?

TESOL certification is the most recognised ESL (English as a Second Language) certification and is required by schools and organisations worldwide. It ensures that you can get a job in reputable institutions overseas, but more importantly, it gives you the skills and confidence you need to successfully teach students whose first language isn't English.

Our TESOL courses will teach you how to:

  • Design teaching programs for different age groups, levels and needs
  • Keep your classes alive, fun and effective with creative activities and games
  • Interact with students and keep them motivated
  • Apply for jobs using our job application guide and job placement service
  • Deal with culture shock
