Which TEFL Internships can you do without a degree?

No degree? You can still teach abroad. But when you’re contending for jobs against teachers who do have a degree, you might benefit from a little CV booster to give you an edge – and that’s where TEFL internships come in.

With a internship teaching abroad, not only will you have an amazing adventure with lots of likeminded people, you’ll also get valuable teaching experience, accredited online TEFL training beforehand and a genuine taster of what life is like for TEFL teachers. Plus, you’ll get full support from our in-country partners throughout your trip. It’s a no-brainer.

Thailand TEFL Internship

The Land of Smiles is at the top of many TEFL teachers’ bucket lists – but to get a full-time TEFL job there, you will need a bachelor’s degree. So, if you’re not a degree-holder, our Thailand TEFL Internship is ideal for you. Get two months of TEFL fun in the sun with a group of fellow interns and plenty of opportunity to travel and explore all Thailand has to offer!

What you’ll get… 120 Hour Online TEFL Course (to complete before you go), seven-week teaching placement in the Kanchanaburi region of Thailand, orientation in Ayutthaya, accommodation and some meals, full in-country support, airport transfers, pre-departure advice and preparation.

Am I eligible?… You’ll need to be aged 18-35 and fluent in English. That’s it!

Twice a year, our Spain Internship kicks off with a completely full capacity and lots of excited interns! The longest of our range of internships, you’ll get nine full months of teaching experience while living with a carefully chosen host family and immersing yourself in Mediterranean culture. Side note: you’ll actually be working as a Conversation Assistant alongside a native teacher, which means you won’t have the responsibility of having your own class and you’ll get lots of tips from an experienced teacher, too!

What you’ll get… 120 Hour Online TEFL Course, approx. nine-month teaching placement, 150 hours of advanced online TEFL training (provided by a Spanish university), monthly living allowance of €315 (£260/US$330), accommodation with host families (including meals, laundry, internet & transport), full in-country support, orientation in Barcelona, airport transfers, pre-departure advice and preparation.

Am I eligible?… You’ll need to be a native English speaker with a passport from the UK, Ireland, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or South Africa, aged 20-30, completed high/secondary school, completed A Levels (or equivalent i.e. Highers, High School Diploma, etc).
