||TEFL fall back position
"I'm doing a PhD in Biochemistry at a UK university and I intend to leave the UK with my French girlfriend when we finish our studies. I would like to know whether it would be possible/appropriate to do a TEFL course as a 'fall back' option, so that if one or neither of us is able to obtain a postdoctoral position there would still be the option of teaching english. Also, would it be possible to combine the TEFL qualification with a life sciences PhD?
