We value experiences outside of our own norm. We are energized by that special feeling of being in a new culture and how it can change you for the better. We’re committed to exploring and respecting that magic along the way, and always thinking of ways to give back to these places that touch our soul.


We believe there is no better tool than education. Teaching can help us better understand the world and bring communities together for the purpose of good. It’s fun, challenging, life-changing, and life-giving.


We believe in providing the best quality of education and tools to equip you abroad. Quality evolves and we strive to always innovate, learn, and develop along the way.


We value everyday enjoyment—in new spaces, in self-expression, and in living your life your way. We hope our commitment to programs that won’t leave you confused, stressed or scared will help you enjoy your teach abroad experience even more. 


We make it easy for you to teach English abroad.

Our mission is to ignite meaningful connections and purposeful change in the world through the power of education.

We believe curious, mindful travel is the best learning experience there is, and the power of imparting knowledge to others while gaining some in return is enough to sanction a lifetime of understanding. At globalU, our goal is to bring the world closer together through cross-cultural examinations in the English classroom. We seek open-minded individuals who are curious about the world, and those who don’t travel to see, but those who travel to learn, to ignite wisdom in themselves and those around them. We want to create a globe with blurry lines, one where cultural diversity is respected and valued, one where humans can peacefully coexist in various forms, one where English is a common language. We believe education is the vehicle to take us there.

We provide a range of internationally recognized TEFL certification courses and recruitment opportunities with an honest, friendly and experienced staff.
