As a non-profit with a mission to provide quality teacher training based on the candidate’s merit, the English Teacher Training College provides scholarships to successful candidates that cover the program fees, accommodation, basic food allowance and program related travel.
Fees and Deposit
€105 Membership Fee
First off… why a membership fee? The way we are structured as a non-profit in Austria (gemeinnützige Verein, ZVR: 249983245), every staff member, Student Teacher, and Austrian student becomes a member of our organization. We request that Student Teachers pay this fee as a way of committing to the program. The €105 that each Student Teacher pays goes right back into the organization to help pay for teaching materials, accommodation, and so on.
€25 Printing Materials Fee
A new addition to the student accommodations this year are brand new printers. These printers will allow you to print out all necessary program materials at your convenience. This €25 fee, payable in cash on the first day of the program, will cover paper, toner, and maintenance. (You will still be responsible for planning your own lessons!)
€75 Deposit (Returnable at end of program)
This deposit is payable in cash on the first day of the program. It covers your accommodation, teaching materials, and polo shirts. Upon return of your materials (in good condition) and an inspection of the accommodation showing it to be in good condition at the end of the program, you will receive the deposit back in full.
Other costs incurred
Your flight and transport from the airport
Unfortunately as a non-profit organization, we do not currently have the funds to pay for plane (or train, or bus) tickets from your home to our campus. You are responsible for bringing yourself to our campus on the first day. We are happy to provide you with information on how to find us. Make sure you also budget enough money to get yourself home as well – or to your exciting new TEFL job!
If you require additional food, medications, and personal items or would like to explore your new surroundings with your fellow Student Teachers, make sure you budget for this! We suggest that Student Teachers budget an extra €150 for each month they participate on the program. This money will cover additional food, leisure travel, and recreational activities.
Visa Costs (Austrian D Visum)
Third-party nationals are required to apply for a Student Visa in their home country’s Austrian Consulate or Embassy. Visa costs can vary but are usually somewhere around €100.
Non-EU citizens must hold health/travel insurance that covers costs (min. $50,000), should they require medical treatment while abroad. This $50,000 threshhold is a requirement for obtaining the visa D.
