TEFL International’s center in Sydney is an attractive option for anyone looking to gain ESL certification. Graduates can gain experience teaching in Australia and then go on to teach in Asia, or nearly anywhere else in the world for that matter. With a population of 4.5 million people, Sydney is a multi-cultural city with a very cosmopolitan feel. It brings with it images of world-class beaches, its famous harbor, the Sydney Opera House and Aboriginal art as well.

Australia is a nation that is young at heart, and it's people are full of energy and have a healthy zest for life. You might arrive alone but you’ll gain friends instantaneously, such is the nature of Aussies and their hospitable demeanor.

Sydney epitomizes everything Australian and it’s of course the nation’s largest and most visited city. It may not be Australia’s capital city but with all it has to offer, it might as well be. It’s estimated that ten million visitors come to Sydney annually, taking advantage of beautiful beaches, historic and cultural attractions, natural beauty, and wildlife as well as nightlife.

Australia (affectionately called “Oz” by most Australians) is in a unique category of being both a first-world and developing world country. Sydney is leading the development and is Australia’s oldest city. You’ll find a treasure trove of cultures that truly come together to create an international atmosphere. Nearly every nation has a pocket of influence in some part of the city, be it Little Italy, Little England, Chinatown, Korea Town, or any other ethnic corner of Sydney.

Aside from the international representations in Sydney, there is much to see and do here: You can get over to Bondi Beach and watch all the surfers while taking in serene scenery. Just near the beach sit plenty of international cafes, bars and restaurants. While there, you’ll have a chance to enjoy the sun, sea and sand--Aussie style.

Sydney’s Wildlife World will allow you to interact with kangaroos, koalas, emus and other wildlife indigenous to Australia. If you like history, Sydney is loaded with colonial architecture, including the famous, Queen Vitoria Building. You can also take a trip back in time to the Rocks—a 21st century attraction in a 200-year-old setting.

If you’re into culture, Sydney’s 15 museums and galleries won’t disappoint. This includes, but certainly isn’t limited to, the National Gallery, the National Museum and the Museum of Aboriginal Art.

Sydney also has loads of entertainment options. Nearly every month there’s a festival of some sort going on. It also has great nightlife: thousands of bars, clubs and restaurants from which to choose.

Put all of these attractions together and Sydney stands out as the best city in the whole of the Southern Hemisphere.

The School

TEFL International Sydney is conveniently located near transport links and local amenities are never far away. Our center houses its own language school so you’ll gain a perfect understanding of what it’s like to teach in the real world. The facility is a refurbished office block reminiscent of 1920s style architecture. The center is also very close to the town hall, Sydney Tower and the majestic, Queen Victoria Building. We’re also within easy reach of our famous Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Botanical Gardens and much more.


TEFL International Sydney has partnered with the best hostel in the vicinity of the center. It’s a 10-min journey from the school by public transport and offers incredibly affordable and clean accommodation. With this option, you can choose either a single room, or a shared room in a dormitory style room at a much lower rate. The hostel also offers both shared and private bathroom facilities.

Of course Sydney has no shortage of hostels and budget backpacker accommodation. You’re free to go with any other accommodation you’d like, but please bear in mind that most trainees will have chosen our partner accommodation. We also believe that our suggested hostel has the cleanest rooms and offer the best value for your money.

If you are looking for premium accommodation, Sydney has a variety of excellent hotels from which to choose.

Once you make your deposit payment, you’ll be sent contact information to our partner hostel as well as other hostels and hotels in the vicinity of the school. You can then use that contact information to make a booking for your accommodation. We’d also be happy to do this for you but there will be a convenience charge for this service.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are my payment options?


    Course deposits must be paid to our administrative center. Credit/debit card payments are the fastest and cheapest way to pay, but we also accept payments via Western Union, Pay Pal and bank transfer. While there are no deadlines for a deposit, courses can fill up quickly and your seat will only be reserved after the deposit has been paid.

    Once you make your deposit, you will receive an email with an informational packet that provides detailed information about the course and Sydney itself.

    The balance of the course fee is payable online before the course (credit/debit card, Pay Pal). We also accept cash payments on the first day of the course.

    Course fees are all-inclusive so you won’t be asked to pay additional costs for course related materials or services. This also includes course moderation, accreditation fees and lifetime job assistance.

  • What are my accommodation options?


    We have partnered with a hostel in the neighborhood that will provide trainees with the most affordable accommodation available (AU$ 2,200 for 4 weeks). Other options are also available and we are happy to provide you with the details of these. If you would like to book accommodation directly through us, please note that you will be charged a service fee.

  • What travel documents will I need for australia?


    This information is specific to your country of origin. For the most accurate and current information regarding travel documents for Australia, please contact your nearest consulate. There is also a very good chance that all the information you require (application documents, application fees, duration of processing documents), is available on the embassy’s webpage.

  • What is the course schedule?


    From Monday to Friday, there are input sessions every morning from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. when trainees learn classroom management, grammar, language and culture and other practical aspects of the course. The lunch break is from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. In the afternoon, trainees prepare their lessons with assistance from their trainer. They may either be teaching their lessons to international students in a classroom situation or be involved in one of the other unique and exciting aspects of our course, such as observing teachers, getting advice on starting your own tutoring business, learning about IELTS or teaching private students. These lessons are followed by feedback from the trainer. We aim to provide six to ten hours of observed teaching practice over the 4-week course. On three of the Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. there is a special language acquisition module where you learn a foreign language so that you can understand what it is like for a non-native speaker to learn English.

  • What can I expect during teaching practice?


    We use international students for the trainees’ classroom teaching practice. These students are very keen and enthusiastic and because we only charge a nominal fee for them to attend, all students come to classes purely because they want to! We also use international students for the private tuition sessions. The private students do not pay for these one hour lessons so they are very excited to be part of it!

  • Who usually attends the course?


    On average we have around six trainees enrolled on each course, although this number does vary throughout the year. Most of our participants are from English speaking countries such as America, The United Kingdom, Canada or Australia, although we do accept non-native speakers of English who have a high proficiency in the language.

  • Is there a dress code?


    Please check the weather for the time of year that you are staying with us as it can vary considerably. Australians generally wear layers as the weather can change from hour to hour.

    Input Sessions and Lesson Planning:

    Attire is casual and relaxed. While there is air conditioning available, please dress comfortably.

    Practice Teaching Sessions at the Training Centre:

    Attire is smart and conservative. Your shoulders must be covered and skirts or trousers must cover your knees when you are sitting down. For women, be careful that your shirts are not too low cut or show your stomach as you may need to lean over to help a student sitting at a desk. Jeans and shorts are not acceptable. Shoes or sandals should be smart in appearance.

  • What should I bring for course studies?


    Please be sure to arrive on the first day of the course with a notebook and a pen. We also encourage you to bring a laptop as we have Wi-Fi at the training center. We will provide all course materials for you so there is no need to bring anything else for the course itself.
