OISE University of Toronto TEFL review, submitted by Identity Hidden.
Because of their reviews transparently labelled on their website; because it was (supposedly) a University Education TEFL Program; because it was the most expensive Online TEFL course on the market; because they were so nice to me at the start with my questions about enrollment and employment, I borrowed the money from my parents. Paid for the course the same day.
After paying, communication wasn’t as friendly. They are super busy I guess, communicating with new arrivals, but I think they really should have a designated staffer whose job it is to settle in the newbies.
There were course assignments to be completed, but for all the hard graft I put in to writing these, their responses were very brief and it was obvious they hadn’t fully read through what had been required of me to submit to them.
This started to make me feel real suspicious, and I began to do some deep research into the company. It’s actually a private company, and owned by Teach Away. Their website makes it seem as though they are a non-profit .org and that you are going to save the world. They are not, They are a private company, who oversee a few TEFL courses, including the OISE University of Toronto TEFL.
Your TEFL certificate will be worthless in North America, because although it has the University of Toronto name flashing like a neon light all over marketing materials, the certificate is actually issued by Teach Away. Not the University of Toronto.
It’s a scam, and I will be writing to the university to complain, and to my bank to begin a chargeback process.
