The fact that our online TEFL courses are accredited by a leading educational institution such as the Paris College of International Education (PCIE) is a major benefit to many trainees as you are able to claim credits towards your bachelor’s or master’s degree through the PCIE. For example, if you choose to take our 120-hour TEFL certification course (generally seen as our standard online course option) you can claim three bachelor’s credits or one master’s credit on completion. If you take our 550-hour Expert Package you can claim nine bachelor’s credits or six master’s credits. At ITTT we offer the chance to gain a teaching qualification that is recognized and welcomed by all the best employers across the TEFL world, while also adding to your higher education portfolio at the same time.
Another important factor to consider is that our certificates are the only purely online TEFL certificates on the market that are validated, accredited and credit bearing from an internationally-recognized university. The university credits gained via the PCIE have been transferred successfully to countless different universities in countries worldwide, while in the US credit evaluation services place the PCIE in the same bracket as a US regionally-accredited university. Our position as the top provider of TEFL courses online means that our trainees enjoy many advantages over trainees from other courses. And one of those is the unique opportunity to earn university credits from an internationally recognized institute such as the PCIE.
