School Overview

School Description

Along with the importance we place on delivering quality, affordable training– something we’ve been doing for over 30 years. And if you do a course with us, you can count on a lifetime of support in pursuing your career in TEFL. Budapest is a beautiful, fascinating and exceedingly 'liveable' city, a great place to do the CELTA.

Note that we regularly offer significant discounts (50-100 GBP off) for Early Bird applicants.

Help with Employment

We endeavour to provide support to trainees in finding a suitable teaching position, whether they choose to stay in Hungary or are interested in working somewhere abroad. There is an input session on the course that specifically addresses finding and keeping a job within TEFL. Information is given on the local teaching context, local schools, the best websites to consult when looking for work internationally, considerations when preparing for an interview and so on. The tutors will act as referees for you in your search for work after the course.

Accommodation

We’re happy to arrange accommodation for you in a comfortable 1 or 2 bedroom flat within a short distance from the school, either on foot or via Budapest’s excellent, and relatively cheap, public transport. Each flat is equipped with wireless internet, a washing machine, and in many cases other appliances such as a microwave, a dishwasher, etc. If you request a share, you would most likely be sharing with someone else on the same course as you. Flats cost 100.000 Ft per person in a share, 140.000 Ft for a single, including utilities, for a four-week period.

Refund Policy

Candidates who withdraw from the course after making payment will be reimbursed the course fee minus the deposit and bank (transfer) costs if they notify IH Budapest Teacher Training in writing (via email) more than three weeks before the course start date. After that time the course fee is non-refundable.

Location Overview

Budapest, capital of Hungary, is one of those places where people go for a month or two and find themselves still here years later. It seems to be due to a combination of factors—the gorgeous architecture; the stunning tableau of the Danube slicing the city into its two main parts of Buda and Pest; the vibrant night life and day life; the proximity of nature, via the Buda Hills; and the simple fact that Budapest is an exceedingly liveable, comfortable city where everyone seems to find a niche that suits them perfectly.

Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre


Very rewarding experience. Really supportive tutors.

, CELTA student,

It was great, the tutors were great

, CELTA student,

I have improved my skills as a teacher and I have learned about numerous teaching techniques. The course gave me support and has helped me to develop my confidence in the classroom.

, CELTA student,

The course was very interesting and helpful, as it got me the job i wanted! The course tutors were so helpful and are still so to this day as they are giving me references.

, CELTA student,

I really enjoyed the course because my fellow trainees and the tutors were extremely helpful throughout the whole time. Besides this, I got precisely the practical knowledge that I was looking for. Thank you so much for your hard work and endless support!:) Keep up the good work! ;)

, CELTA student,

I was absolutely satisfied with the course. Very intense, but I expected it to be. The teachers were fully prepared and gave us excellent training. We had to teach from the first day, but it was a good experience. I have learned a lot from the teachers' and peer group's feedback on my teaching. The group was amazing. I loved working together with them and they were all so helpful and hardworking. Since the course, I had a summer teaching job in the UK and currently have a permanent job, teaching Functional Skills English to adults. I'd recommend this course to anyone, who feel committed to learning and working hard, meet new people and gain loads of experience.

, CELTA student,

The course was amazing. Staff and tutors were very professional. The only thing missing was the technology, classes were very low-tech and we didn't train on using powerpoints and other resources because classes didn't have screens or computers.

, CELTA student,

Even though the course is very intensive the tutors and the collegues were very nice and supportive. I enjoyed being there and I have learnt a lot.

, CELTA student,

It was an incredible experience. I learned a lot and also got to know some really nice people.

, CELTA student,

It was a great experience. Though I have been in the teaching field for long time, the type and quality of experience, skills and knowledge I gained in one month time in IH Budapest outweigh years of my knowledge and experience prior to the course, thanks to my lovely tutors:Eszter & Kieran.

, CELTA student,

I had a great experience during my time in IH Budapest. The tutors were extremely knowledgeable and at the same time approachable. I was very satisfied with the course overall. I only wish there was at least one session regarding the use of technology in teaching.

, CELTA student,

My overall experience from studying at IH Budapest was positive. I enjoyed interacting with classmates from around the words as well as students.

, CELTA student,

Very professional and fun. I loved every moment. The tutors were amazing and so were my fellow peer teachers :)

, CELTA student,

The tutors were excellent and the structure of the course over a five week period was a perfect fit for my learning style. When I started my first ESL teaching job, I noticed right away how well-equipped I was from the CELTA training.

, CELTA student,

I immensely enjoyed the whole course and was satisfied with the tutors and the staff, as well. Sometimes, it would have been helpful if we had had the chance to use things in the teachers' room. Also, the snack bar was a bit too expensive, so we often had to go to some other place to buy coffee or something to nibble at. I think that even a small discount for CELTA students would easily solve this problem. Other than that, I found the course itself and its administration really impressive.

, CELTA student,

I learned so much taking this course and all the tutors were great. They were very helpful and knowledgable. The location is near several restaurants and some tourist sites so it was nice to explore on the weekend. I would definitely recommend this course to others!

, CELTA student,

The course was highly practical, very intense and super useful for me. The tutors were were helpful, gave lots of feedback (which we all needed) and were straightforward but also gracious. Those 30-days were the most challenging days of my life but it was worth it because I can see it's "fruit" in my teachings.

, CELTA student,

I am very happy and satisfied with my choice to take the CELTA course at IH Budapest. It was recommended to my by a friend and she sais it was excellent. And I agree with her!

, CELTA student,

It was an excellent course, and very well managed by the course tutors. The staff were helpful and I enjoyed the whole experience very much. I cannot believe how much work the tutors put into leading the sessions. A great experience and it is going to help my teaching a lot. I would have liked to have more and better functioning computers with English keybord and more reference materials in the CELTA room. Apart from that, all was good.

, CELTA student,

I'd heard that doing CELTA was great at IH Budapest but I didn't expect it to be as good as it was. The tutoring was amazing and we were given such useful feedback on our teaching that it was easy to improve. I found the pace of the course just right and found all the resources most helpful. Overall it was a fantastic experience and amazing value for money

, CELTA student,

The course is good for learning how to teach groups, teaching was very good . We had a very good team on the course. The course on the other hand does not provide insight for individual tutoring, or for teaching beginners - I believe that should be added as well.

, CELTA student,

Very enjoyable. Excellent.

, CELTA student,

Excellent course and tutors. I had no teaching experience from before, so I was feeling pretty lost and very nervous. But I knew I wanted to learn how to teach ESL. Now I feel ready to teach and I'm filled with inspiration from those 4 weeks. I know the Celta is a training in teaching techniques and classroom management, I'm not a professional teacher yet. That will come over time with practice and experience. The techniques or the style of teaching that the Celta is, are really good. I wish had a Celta teacher for my English lessons! It was hard work for sure, but I loved every step of it. My peers were fantastic too, we were a great team. Thank you!

, CELTA student,

I'd recommend this course to anyone who likes to teach. A real eye-opener experience

The tutors at Budapest were amazing! Extremely approachable and very engaging. Budapest is a really fun city to live in and overall I thoroughly enjoyed doing my CELTA with IH Budapest.

, CELTA student,

To start with, I am glad I chose to do CELTA in Budapest. Our tutors Mike and Vanja were brilliant, very helpful, very kind and it was fun to spend this whole month with them. All in all, everything was very well organised and we were provided with all the materials and equipment necessary to succeed in the course. I believe I learnt lot more within that month than throughout my university studies.

It was one of the best experiences of my life. I recommend IH Budapest to everybody who is considering taking CELTA course.

It was challenging, but amazing! I was really enjoying the course and now when it's almost my 30th after-CELTA lesson here in Moscow I must say it IS crutial to accomplish CELTA and get the better understanding of what our job is, how we must do what we do and why we teach. I'm so grateful for this chance to become a better teacher and I consider myself lucky to have done the course in magnificent Budapest!

, CELTA student,

I am very grateful to my tutors Gary, Anna and Mike. They are the best teachers I've ever seen.I would definetely recommend the course! It's an amazing experience!
