In Response To: UT Austin CELTA Course (Becky)

Hey all, I was wondering if anyone here has gone through the CELTA certification at UT Austin recently. If so, how was the course? About to apply for a summer session and wondering if this is the best option.

CELTA is a standardized, assessed course, which means it's the exact same course content regardless of where it's completed---on home soil or abroad in the country you expect to teach in. Other certs of equal footing include Trinity CertTESOL and SIT TESOL. In terms of entry-level teaching qualifications, these courses all include a crucial component: supervised teaching practice with real students. There are some non-brand, vanilla TEFL cert courses that offer the similar content as the three branded certs, but if you want a TEFL qualification that is widely-recognized and accepted by employers the world over, CELTA, Trinity, and SIT all meet that criteria.

That said, many teacher-trainees find the CELTA course intense, while others don't. Since "How's the course?" is a very broad question, I suggest you read through UT's CELTA faqs for answers to whatever specific questions you may have or given UT a call.
