What qualifications do you need to teach English in China?

You need a bachelor’s degree in any field to teach in China. You also need a TEFL certificate, unless you have an education or teaching degree.

If you don’t have a TEFL certificate, you can still apply with us today.

We offer discounted TEFL certificates from our partner, TEFL Source. In addition, some private centers we work with provide a free or discounted course. So it pays to talk to us first.

The minimum certificate you need for China is 120 hours. It can be done entirely online or a combination of online and in person.

Most people complete their TEFL certificate in their home country before they go to China. However, you have the option of completing it in a classroom setting in China, with other people like you, before you start teaching. Please contact us to find out more.
