TEFL jobs in Slovakia

Slovakia isn't one of the most popular TEFL destinations, but that's not to say there aren't opportunities to be found. There can be less competition for positions than elsewhere, which means suitably qualified EFL teachers shouldn't have too much trouble securing a job.

While most opportunities can be found in the capital, Bratislava, don't be deterred from looking elsewhere in the country where it can be easier to find a TEFL job. You'll also find living costs significantly cheaper outside of Bratislava - particularly the cost of rent.

Where to find work in Slovakia

For non-EU applicants, the visa process in Slovakia is expensive and lengthy, requiring criminal records checks from your own country, a letter from your landlord to evidence accommodation, a local blood test, medical certificate and more. Some schools will help you with the process but are unlikely to cover the fees.
