Our online TEFL courses have many popular features and their high level of flexibility is probably one of the most appreciated by our trainees. None of our online courses have any set study times or fixed timetables, which means you can fit your course around whatever else you have going on in your life. As you get to choose when and how much you study, it is possible to work around any other existing commitments you have, such as work, family, or other forms of study. You do not need to be online at any specific times, simply log in to your study dashboard whenever you have some free time and do what you can, when you can.
The only restriction we have is a six month time limit on the whole course from the day you first start your study. This time frame is in place to ensure that the information covered in the early parts of the course is still fresh in your mind by the time you reach the end of your studies. Within this generous time limit you are completely free to work at any pace you choose, with no pressure from us whatsoever. Some people with few commitments and plenty of spare time are able to finish their course and get TEFL certified within just a few weeks, while many others prefer to minimise any potential for study stress and take their time working through the materials. Whatever path you choose to take, you will still receive the same internationally accredited TEFL qualification once you complete the course.
