We assist you in getting your student visa and then in making a smooth transition, as well as giving you a job!
– If you have an online TEFL course, which doesn’t meet these requirements, we have other opportunities for you, so drop us a line and we’ll guide you through them.
– For those of you who are European Union passport holders or have a work or spousal visa, and have a TEFL certificate, please check out our Madrid Lifestyle (EU) Program.
YOUR ONE YEAR MADRID LIFESTYLE WORK & STUDY VISA
- The Canterbury English Madrid Lifestyle and Spanish Program includes a student visa that allows us to give you up to a maximum of twenty hours a week of work, at a pay rate of between 16 and 20 Euros an hour. This means that you will be earning enough money to support yourself in Madrid, as well as having the time to study and excel in becoming fluent in the Spanish language.
- UNBELIEVABLE OFFER: If you wish to stay in Spain after one year, Canterbury English will renew your student visa FOR FREE (Nobody else will do this).
- Why do we do this? Because after one year of working-teaching with us, you have paid your dues, and you are REAL family to us. We have developped a friendship and REAL friends help other friends out when they need help. And if you become an expatriot and become hooked on Spain, like us at Canterbury English, then you might just want to stay. And if you do, just say the word, and that means we will allow you to do our year Spanish course for free and we will renew your student visa for free. THAT’S WHAT REAL FRIENDS ARE FOR!
