Can I take the TESOL Diploma course without prior TEFL certification?

As the course is of an advanced level and has been designed to build on the subjects covered in a standard TEFL certification course, prior TEFL certification is usually required. Exceptions might be made for practicing teachers who have extensive experience in an English language classroom. However, if you sign-up for the Diploma course now, we are currently offering our 120-hour online TEFL certification course for free.

Does the TESOL Diploma course come with tutor support?

You can choose to take the Diploma course either with or without the support of an online tutor. Our online tutors are highly experienced teacher trainers who are available to answer your questions and to offer tips and advice for improving your understanding of the course topics. If you are unfamiliar with distance learning and higher levels of academic study, then we strongly recommend you consider the tutored version of the course. Taking the course without a tutor requires a significant amount of independent motivation and academic aptitude.

Finally, for module 12 you will produce a research project. Once you have successfully completed the tests and the research project, you will receive your TESOL Diploma certification.
