Questions and answers about International House

  • Regarding the final CELTA certificate with the pass mark, it typically takes 6-8 weeks to arrive from Cambridge to our institution after the conclusion of the course. Following this, we will dispatch it to the students by mail. Therefore, students usually receive their CELTA certificate around 9 weeks after completing the course. However, we provide students with a provisional letter containing their pass mark, which they can use until they receive the official certificate.
    Beatriz Collalto, Assistant Manager from International House - Feb 13, 2024
  • If the student is interested in applying, the student needs to go through an acceptance process and be offered a place. To initiate this process, we will send an application form, which includes a task the student must complete, after which our team will schedule an interview with the student. Upon approval, the student will be enrolled, and we will send the invoices and booking confirmation documents.
