Can I teach in the UAE with only a degree and a CELTA or TESL?

Posted by & filed under All Subjects, International Education.


YES! You can!

Up until recently, it was extremely competitive to obtain a position as an ESL teacher in the UAE. However, some programs have recently opened for ESL teachers to teach English in the UAE.

However, all English teachers must be
• Native speakers
• Hold a degree from a Western country and
• Possess a CELTA/DELTA or TEFL 120+ certificate
• Have 2-3 years teaching experience

If you only have a degree and have been teaching English, you can easily obtain your TEFL by visiting our partner website. All courses are accredited by the British Council.
