    Default Admission to UK University

    I did my M.A.in English in 1994 from a Pakistani university.I have been teaching English to secondary and higher secondary students of Pakistani stream in the country's best cadet college.Moreover,I have taught English language paper 1123 to 'O' Level Cambridge Class for the last five years.Now,I feel it's time for me to do my TEFL and teach English abroad.

    Could you please guide me take admission on some TEFL course to some UK university or college?

    Thanks!

    If you just want a TEFL qualification to enable you to travel. I'd go for the CELTA which is the most widely recognised and, together with your MA, should open doors for you.

    It's a fairly standard basic TEFL qualification that is recognised in virtually every country:
    Cambridge ESOL - Teaching Awards, CELTA

    The reason I suggest it is simply it's wide acceptance and you already have a Master's and experience.
