Via Lingua International is partnering with the following charities to provide educational resources and tools for students and teachers around the world.

Course Accreditation

The Via Lingua Group is fully committed to ensuring that both the content and delivery of its CTEFL program meet the highest possible international academic and industry standards. It is important for us to be able to demonstrate the quality of the Via Lingua program to the end-users of our CTEFL qualification - trainee teachers, future employers, colleges and universities. We seek to do this through reference to internationally accepted standards so that our stakeholders can be confident in the final certificate and what it represents. Our accreditation process includes both internal and external verification, standardization and validation elements.

In order to confirm our internal judgments regarding the consistency and quality of the Via Lingua CTEFL program, and in order to respond to requests from many of our graduates for the opportunity to continue their studies at higher degree level, we have reached articulation, accreditation and validation agreements with a number of universities, colleges and organizations that are prominent in the field of TEFL teacher education. Such bodies have closely examined our program and delivery strategies and are happy to confirm that we meet their rigorous standards. In recognition of this, they are pleased to confirm that Via Lingua CTEFL graduates who are subsequently accepted into their MATESOL programs will automatically qualify for between 4 and 6 credits of advanced standing toward their MATESOL coursework. Currently, the Via Lingua Group has such agreements with three universities: St. Michael's College, Hamline University and the Hufstedler School of Education at Alliant International University.

St. Michael's College. TESOL certificate holders from Via Lingua are eligible for six credits of advance standing according to our articulation agreement. The six credits will be applied to waive coursework within the 36-credit MATESOL Program. St. Michael's College is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. The College is a member of the American Council on Education, the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, the National Catholic Educational Association, the College Entrance Examination Board, the New England Colleges Fund, the Vermont Higher Education Council and the Association of Vermont Independent Colleges.

Hamline University. Via Lingua International is proud to partner with Hamline University for those trainees wishing to further their studies in Teaching English as a Foreign Language at the graduate level. Graduate credits are available for Via Lingua graduates, in recognition of the quality of the program. Hamline's second language teaching and learning program is nationally recognized by NCATE and TESOL. Hamline University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Associations of Colleges and Schools.

The Hufstedler School of Education at Alliant International University. On successful completion of the Via Lingua CTEFL program, graduates will be eligible for up to 6 advanced credits towards their TESOL Master's program. Alliant International University is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), a regional accrediting body recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the same agency under which other prestigious California and western U.S. schools are accredited such as Stanford, USC and UCLA.

The Via Lingua Group is currently in the process of reaching similar articulation and accreditation agreements with universities and national accreditation bodies in both North America and Europe.

Our commitment to Via Lingua CTEFL candidates is that their final certificate will not only recognize their development and achievement as language teachers, matched against standardized statements of attainment, but will also be recognized as a high level graduate qualification by tertiary education institutes and employers.

The accredited Via Lingua CTEFL program provides a bridge for its graduates to the exciting world of advanced study and employment opportunities. Why not take the first step?
