What do I need to teach in Japan if I am from England.

by Keith Morrell
(Huddersfield, England)


Hello, Good Morning or Good Afternoon.


I am looking to travel over to Japan to work as soon as possible. I spent three weeks in Japan earlier this year, and I would like to get over to Japan to work as either a teacher, or to work in an office.

I am wondering what I would need to do to be able to teach. I would love to live in Odawara, Yokohama or Tokyo.

At the moment I have no qualification in English apart from school grade's. I'm a 23 year old English Designer who has a HND in Graphic Design and 5 years experience within the design industry.

I am unsure if I need to do a TEFL course as I have no experience with teaching, apart from teaching friends over in Japan how to speak English.

From September this year I will be enrolling on an Japanese course and also a Batchelor's Degree as I think I will need this qualification to work in Japan.

I hope you are having a great day and that you can help me.

Yours Sincerely,

Keith Morrell

Hi Keith,

Hope these answers help you!


I would try to get a working holiday visa. Things are always changing but as far as I know
citizens of the UK can get a working holiday visa for Japan. That will allow you to work and employers love that visa as it makes things a lot easier when hiring you. It can be renewed as far as I know. Then you can always switch over
to a working visa in the future, once the working
holiday visa expires.


Yes, do take a TEFL course. Your students will
be happy that you did. You can take one online
if there are no courses near you or you would prefer that. Here is a link to a very good
TEFL course:

http://www.how-to-teach-english-in-japan.com/teach-english-online.html I recommend: i-to-i

Plus they help to place you with a school. So they train you and help you get a good job too.


Read the advice on our First Steps Page:

http://www.how-to-teach-english-in-japan.com/first-steps.html

The above link should help with your preparation.


Getting your degree is a great idea. It will improve your chances of getting a good job in Japan. As well studying Japanese is always a good idea.



Basically read all that you can about living and working in Japan (as you seem to be doing).



The people who have a bad experience here tend to be the ones who jump on the plane with no planning and expect things to go well. Sometimes they do and sometimes they don`t.



Be prepared!
