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.
Our partner Budapest teacher training centre is happy to provide information about accommodation options in the Budapest area at the interview stage of the application process, but candidates are required to arrange their own accommodation. Through most options and providers, you are likely to be able to reach the school either on foot or via Budapest’s excellent public transport. As a piece of advice, look for flats through established providers, these should be equipped with wireless internet, a washing machine, and in many cases other appliances such as a microwave, dishwasher, etc. Budapest is a truly fantastic city and we hope you will enjoy your stay! The centre will also be able to advise you about places to visit.
You can organise your own housing using websites such as and .
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.
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.
