50 hour TEFL course
To gain the qualification, you will need to complete both parts of the course. This means that you will first be required to attend and pass the 20-hour classroom-based module held on campus. This module will start at 9am and end at approximately 8pm on both days (including breaks), and includes lots of interactive and practical activities. You can then complete the remaining 30 hour online grammar course at your convenience, but this part must be completed by the completion deadline specified for your course.
The 50 hour TEFL course usually costs £147.50 but DMU students can participate for just £50!
120 hour TEFL course
Get the best of both worlds with the 120-hour TEFL course and combine flexible online learning with a hands-on practical weekend course. The 120 hour online course can fit around your existing schedule as you work through the course work at a pace that suits you. This course includes a 50-hour online TEFL course, 30-hour online grammar course, 20-hour online or in person weekend course and a 20 hour online video course to prepare you for teaching English abroad.
The 120 hour TEFL course usually costs £249 but DMU students can participate for just £99!
Once you have completed your course, you could put your new skills into practice by working in local schools with DMU Local or, in the future, volunteering overseas with DMU Global!
