Apply Now

Before you apply, please make sure that you’ve read the official (and unofficial) Entry Requirements and that you understand the selection process described below.

You may be surprised by what seems like a long and demanding selection procedure. One aim of the process is to assess the ‘language awareness’ of each candidate, as well as their potential as teachers of English. We should point out that although you don’t need teaching experience or to have completed in-depth study of the English language, we will evaluate your ability to research answers in order to analyse a piece of language using the internet, a grammar book or some other teaching resource.

A second reason is to make sure that you’ve really thought about your decision to take a CELTA with International House – is it the right course for you, and are you prepared? It also allows you time to ask us any questions you may have.
