Do I need a degree to teach English Online?
The simple answer is no.
It is a commonly held belief that a university degree or teaching experience is needed to secure an overseas teaching position. TESOL Australia is here to say; this is definitely not the case. How do we know? Because we have over 20 years’ experience in the International TESOL industry with numerous graduates around the world teaching English with no degree.
In fact, there are many countries overseas which do not require a degree to teach English, over 4 beautiful continents to be exact (Europe, Asia, South America and Africa) – with over 1 billion people actively learning English worldwide. Nowadays, the minimum teaching requirements for most of these countries are a recognised TESOL Certificate (140 hours minimum) with teaching practicum preferred by most schools.
The solution, whether you want a gap year, career break or just after a new challenge – undertaking a 140 hour International TESOL Certificate will allow you to pack your travel bag and start your new adventure. In addition, all of our courses have integrated teaching practicum with actual international students to prepare you for real-world teaching.
Get ready to start your eye-opening journey and join the thousands of graduates who are teaching English abroad without a degree!
