Certificate in the Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages (CertTESOL)

Only valid for qualifications awarded between 2008 and 2010

    Completed qualification

  • You may be eligible for 10 credits at OU level 1

You will need at least 30 credits of study before you can be awarded credit transfer. Modules at the OU are usually either 30 or 60 credits so you need a minimum of 30 credits to use credit transfer in an OU qualification. If you have more than one period of study we can add the credits from each period to reach the minimum of 30 credits.

Evidence you will need to provide

To confirm the exact amount of credit you can use you must make a formal application for credit transfer.  For more details on how credit from this previous study can be used in OU qualifications please see OU qualification.

With your application you should provide your original certificate (if the qualification was completed) together with a transcript of academic record, or equivalent, which should list all the subjects you successfully completed together with the marks or grades you achieved. Depending on the OU qualification that you wish to transfer your credit towards you may also need to provide syllabus information. When do I need to provide syllabus information?
