Admissions policy

EBC is an equal opportunity educational institution and prides itself on ensuring diversity within its student body.

EBC accepts and enrols students continuously during the year. The admissions staff treat each application carefully, evaluating personal as well as intellectual qualities, and making every effort to be thorough, sensitive and fair.

Our goal is to bring together groups with: high academic ability, professional experience and a variety of backgrounds, particular interests, accomplishments and aspirations. EBC offers a residential course where students have much to offer and to learn from each other.


Minimum entry requirements

Our entry requirements are stricter than most TEFL Certificate courses, because we want to attract quality rather than quantity. We believe that the best people with the best training get the best jobs.

EBC requires you to be at least 21 and to either have a degree or a minimum of 5 years work experience. Almost all other courses including well-known courses will accept 18 year old high school graduates.
