Through DMU Global and in partnership with The TEFL Org you could study one of the following courses:
50-hour TEFL Course
This course includes a 20-hour classroom-based module and a 30-hour online grammar module.

This course includes a 50-hour online TEFL course, 30-hour online grammar course, 20-hour online video course and two 10-hour specialist mini-modules.
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
The 120-hour Online TEFL course makes getting TEFL certified as convenient as possible so it’s perfect for those with busy lives. Fit studying around your existing schedule and work through the coursework at a pace that suits you. You’re given six months to complete this course, with the option to extend if required, but most students complete it on average within 10 to 12 weeks.
The 120 hour TEFL course usually costs £339 but DMU students can participate for just £50!
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!
