Cambridge DELTA Modules Online: Course Providers Dates, Formats and Fees
What is the Delta Course?
The University of Cambridge English Language Assessment Delta (Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is the world’s most highly-regarded diploma-level teacher training course for experienced English teachers.
The aim of the Delta is to build on and deepen your pre-existing English teaching knowledge, making you a more well-rounded teacher, and furthering your career prospects. Delta has three, separate yet interlinking Modules, outlined briefly below.
You can take these modules separately, all together, and in any order – however, you will need all three to be Delta qualified.
DELTA Module 1 Online
A written exam held twice a year focused on extending and developing candidates’ knowledge and understanding of teaching and learning English in a range of contexts. You will need to attend a Cambridge examination centre to take the exam, which is held every June and December. This could be your online course’s accredited centre, or another centre closer to you. Once you apply for an online Delta course, your Delta admissions officer and tutor can help you decide on an examination centre that is convenient for you.
Please note that for Delta Module 1, you will need to attend a Cambridge examination centre to take the exam. The exam is held every June and December. This could be your online course’s accredited centre, or another centre closer to you. Once you apply for a Delta course, your Delta tutor can help you decide on an examination centre that is good for you.
You do not have to attend the accredited centre to take an online Delta course; you can take it from anywhere in the world.
DELTA Module 2 Online
A course focused on developing awareness and expertise in the principles and professional practice of teaching English in a range of contexts. Assessed through coursework and teaching practice.
DELTA Module 3 Online
An extended, written assignment with two submission dates annually. You can submit the assignment to Cambridge via online. This module has two streams:
- Extending Practice and ELT Specialism: This stream focuses on needs analysis, syllabus design, course planning and assessment.
- English Language Teaching Management: This stream is based around situation analysis, planning and implementing change.
DELTA Accredited Centres
While the courses listed on StudyCELTA are fully online, your DELTA tutor and the accredited centre for running the course are in a specific location. You should choose the centre that will run your course based on time zones, dates, and the intensity of each course.

Minimum Entry Requirements for the Delta Modules
The Delta Course is intended for experienced teachers. Meaning teachers who wish to extend their professional experience and accept new responsibilities. The Delta does not only demonstrates a commitment to the profession but also proof of ability.
The DELTA is open to people from all language backgrounds. All participants must have native speaker proficiency, written and spoken, that enables them to follow the course and complete all assessed and non-assessed elements successfully.
Ideally, applicants should:
- have at least two years’ full-time (1,200 hours) experience of teaching English to a variety of levels within the past five years.
- be able to prove a range of teaching experience in different contexts and at different levels.
- be a graduate and have an initial teaching qualification (i.e. CELTA, Trinity Cert TESOL or equivalent)
- have a standard of English that will enable you to teach at a range of levels (native-speaker proficiency, such as C2, CPE or IELTS 8+)
We may still accept applicants if they do not strictly meet these requirements. If they can demonstrate that they would be likely to complete the course successfully. If you’re unsure about your eligibility, get in contact with one of our Delta experts.
