Our Previous TEFL Course Pre-Accrediting Body:
Middlesex University in the U.K.


(NOTE: We have now terminated this pre-accreditation ourselves, because NO ONE wanted to do a course in Thailand, then go back abroad to study for a degree! You can be very sure, however, that if you DO wish to study for a degree in TEFL or TESOL with a foreign university, your TEFL Course qualifications from our Academy will NOT be ignored!)
