After a long day gaining valuable TEFL experience and discovering Austria we understand the importance of a safe and comfortable environment for you to relax, recuperate and recharge in. At the Global English Teaching Academy, we know the last thing you want to worry about during your TEFL certification is whether the accommodation you have found has any hidden surprises. As a result, we’ve done all the hard work for you and provided Student Teacher dormitories at a subsidised price of €98 p/w. So, no extra stress while you learn to teach English abroad. All accommodation will be organised through the GET Academy, so there is no worry or hassle in having to apply through other agencies to organise your own accommodation!
The accommodations are located across Austria, from the quaint town of Vorchdorf to the bustling city of Vienna. While you get TEFL certified, you will also get the opportunity to travel across Austria and experience what the country has to offer.
There is no need to bring any bedding, duvets and/or pillows as everything is provided. Our dormitories are equipped with study zones, living rooms, kitchens and bathrooms and our welfare team is always on hand to ensure a comfortable living environment for you as you become a certified English teacher. Teaching English as a second language is a rewarding experience, which you will want to share with everyone around you, and our communal living environment generates a family-like atmosphere for you to share your experiences with your fellow ‘teflers’.
The accommodation in Vienna will be based in the 10th district, close to the inner city and all the amenities and opportunities that the city of Vienna provides. Accommodation will be shared and is “all-inclusive” i.e. the price includes: heating, water, electricity, internet, TV connection and regular room cleaning. The student accommodation also allows free access to onsite gym facilities, a sauna, study lounge, bicycle storage room, laundry room and a terrace. There is a common area and communal kitchens, ensuring a community like atmosphere to decompress after a rewarding day of teaching.
As we run projects all around Austria, it may sometimes be necessary, for training purposes, to travel to the main campus in Vorchdorf. If this is the case, student teachers will stay in on-site accommodation at the campus, free-of-charge. Accommodation in Vorchdorf comprises of separate student dorms for men and women, with bedding and linen provided for each student teacher. There is also a fully equipped kitchen, a common room and beautiful, fresh country air!
As we strive to reach as many children in all of Austria, we sometimes have projects further afield. In such circumstances, accommodation will be arranged and provided for, for all participating staff and student teachers alike. Who knew teaching could be so much fun!
- The cost of accommodation is subsidised by the GET Academy so that the price of accommodation is affordable for each student teacher. The reduced cost is 98 euros per week.
- Regular cleaning is free of charge, however, at the end of each course, there is a final cleaning fee required. This cleaning fee is €85 and can be paid in cash on Orientation Day at the Campus.
- Each student will be provided with €30 at the beginning of the course to supplement laundry costs, which costs €2 per cycle.
In keeping with the GET Academy’s ethos in ensuring that all students, irrespective of financial means can participate in the course, the GET Academy pays €700 on behalf of every student teacher, for a security deposit. In the case of loss or damages to the accommodation and/or training facilities, each student teacher is financially responsible and will be held accountable for any damages incurred, case by case.
Please note: The Global English Teaching Academy cannot house participants until the first day of the course. Course participants arriving before the course start date will be required to organise their own accommodation until the course start date. We require all successful applicants to attend our Orientation day at the Vorchdorf Campus for the first week (link to FAQs) of the program which is at the main campus in the district of Gmunden in Upper Austria.
