Who TEFLs? - University Students
24 July 2012
What do you plan to do when you graduate?
This is an often asked question which university
students try and avoid. Jobs in the UK are increasingly rare
and difficult to secure but the demand for TEFL teachers
abroad is huge! All you need is an accredited TEFL course and
you can set off nearly anywhere in the world and get paid to teach
English as a foreign language. TEFL is a
great way to travel, gain international work experience and have
the time of your life while getting paid. You don't need to speak a
foreign language, or have a background in teaching - all you need
is an official TEFL Org UK
certificate. Find out why we think university is a perfect time
to take an accredited TEFL course.
Get away, straight away!
Why wait until you graduate to book on to a TEFL course. If
complete your accredited TEFL course while you are
at university you will be all set to go straight after you
graduate. You can apply for TEFL jobs through our TEFL Jobs
Centre. You can be teaching English abroad in a matter of a few
weeks after you receive your official TEFL Org UK
You're already in the learning mode
There's probably not better time for you to take an
accredited TEFL course than while you are already in
the mode of studying for university. It takes people on average
8-12 weeks to complete their online TEFLcourse, but you can
complete it in a lot less time if you put the work in. Find out

Opportunities to gain teaching experience
Universities are great place to pick up a bit of teaching
English practice with your official TEFL Org UK
certificate. While you don't need any previous teaching
experience to land a job overseas, it certainly will help when it
comes to apply for TEFL jobs.
Qualified TEFL graduates often find work helping
firs-year international students with their language skills. This
is a great opportunity for you to put the skills you learnt on
your TEFL course into practice.
