Our online TEFL course is open for enrollment and completion for anyone who is fluent in English and would like to learn the skills and receive a qualification to teach English as a foreign language.

That being said, it's important to know that a completed Bachelors degree (in any subject) is required by many countries to legally work. However, some countries, such as Cambodia, do not require a degree. Several online teaching companies also do not require a degree.

Additionally, many countries designate certain nationalities as "native English speakers" as those who have a passport from either the United States of America, United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand or South Africa and native English speakers are preferred by many (and required by some) governments and schools.
