  • Q: How long does a TEFL Course take to complete?

    The time it takes to complete a TEFL Course depends on a few different factors, including: the length of TEFL Course you’ve purchased, the Level of the TEFL Course you’ve purchased, the time you can commit to your studies on a daily/weekly basis and your own understanding of TEFL.

    As a general rule, Level 3 Courses take between 4-10 weeks to complete and Level 5 Courses take between 6-12 weeks to complete – but this time varies widely.

  • Q: How do I submit a course assignment?

    Throughout your TEFL Course, you’ll have numerous assignments to complete – but don’t worry! There are clear instructions on how to do this within your Course.

    You can write your work in a Word document and then upload it to your Course and it’ll automatically be submitted to a tutor to be graded. Simple!

  • Q: How long does it take for a tutor to grade my assignment?

    Count on up to one week’s handling time for every assignment you send to our tutors. However, if you’re taking a Level 3 Course, you can purchase Express Marking which ensures feedback within 24-48 hours. If you’re interested, you can contact our Customer Support Team for more information.
