What do you need?

You need:

  2. To be a native English or a bilingual English speaker.
  3. To have a degree or the equivalent in verifiable work experience*

*Exceptions are sometimes made in a special case.

 

  • Application Process:

 

  • Step One: Email for Info.
  • Email Richard (infotefl@canterburyenglish.com) and he will send you the information you need to decide if this is for you.
  • – He will need to know if you are EU or Non EU so he can send you the correct information (We have different program information for EU and Non EU)
  • – Instead of this you can fill out the inquiry form with any questions you might have.

 

  • Step Two: Fill out Application
  • After you have read the information and are familiar with our organization, we will send you an application form. We need this to review your eligibility and find out more about you. This will help us advise you better about the program that is best for you.

 

  • Step Three: Application Decision (50% Complete)
  • After you have completed your application and sent it to us, within 3-5 days it will be reviewed and a decision will be made. If the decision is positive, and you have been pre-approved for the course, then you will receive a pre-acceptance letter and will have completed 50% of the application process.

 

  • Step Four: Skype Interview (75% Complete)
  • Now it’s time to set up a Skype interview. You need to send us your Skype Id. and schedule a time with us from Mon-Fri 10am-3pm Spanish time. During the interview, you can ask us all the questions you want and we can find out more about you. Once you are finished with the interview, we will let you know if you have been accepted. If you are, you have now completed 75% of the application process for the program that you are interested in.

 

  • Step Five: Payment Instructions
  • You will receive an acceptance letter, instructions on how to pay the deposit, an invoice with payment details, instructions on how to apply for a visa (if Non-EU) and a welcome pack. The welcome pack includes information about the course, things you will need to bring, what date you will need to be here and much more.

 

  • Step Six: Deposit Payment (100% Complete)
  • To finish the application process and secure your place in the program you have chosen, you need to pay the reservation fee a maximum of 14 days after you have received the acceptance letter. You will receive this  after you successfully pass the Skype interview.
  • The reservation deposit is 300€ for all programs, except the One Year Study Abroad Program with TEFL and Spanish, which is 800€.
  • If after 14 days, you have not sent your reservation deposit, we assume that you are not interested in continuing the application process and we free up your pre-reserved place in the program for somebody else on the waiting list (because of the high demand for our programs and the limited number of people we can accept per month, we often have a waiting list for the month that you have reserved, and we need to free the space up for another person).
  • If you decide to pay the reservation deposit after the 14 days have expired, you would need to reapply.

 

  • Step Seven: Letter for Spanish Consulate (Non-EU)
  • Once the payment is received, your place is reserved (not until). In the case that you are Non-EU, we send you a letter for the Spanish Consulate that says you have paid the deposit and that you are eligible for a student visa.

 

  • Step Eight: Remaining Course Payment
  • The rest of the course fee is paid when you arrive and before orientation.
