Teaching English

Introduction to TEFL



Thinking of teaching English abroad? Teaching English overseas can be a great experience and a good way to see the world.


English Language Education (ELE) and the Global Students team have joined up to offer students a great opportunity to find out more with a 3-day Introduction to TEFL course. This 15-hour course will give you the chance to find out if teaching EFL is the right choice for you and help you start to develop some basic teaching skills. The course takes place in the Spring term and is open to all Edinburgh University students from all disciplines. The next course will take place in Sem 2, 2020.


Please note that the course tends to be very popular and often attracts a large number of applicants. Consideration will be given to all applicants but priority may be given to those with imminent volunteer placements and/or travel plans.
