Apply for the Cambridge CELTA

Before applying, please ensure that you have read the official (and unofficial) Entry Requirements and that you fully understand the selection procedure set out below. On reading the latter, you may be surprised at the need for the rather lengthy and demanding selection process, especially given the relatively few official entry requirements.


One aim of the process is to assess each candidate’s ‘language awareness’ and ‘potential’ (see entry requirements); we wish to point out that although neither teaching experience nor previous advanced study of the English language is required, we will attempt to assess your ability to consult a grammar book / teaching resource in order to analyse a piece of language.


A second reason is that the process should afford you enough time to really consider whether the Cambridge CELTA is the course for you, and to allow time for you to ask questions of us.


There are 3 easy steps to a place on the IH CELTA in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, or Phuket.
