Foreigners without a degree expecting to secure TEFL work in Europe may find it challenging given the education levels of their competition and target students.

According to Eurostat:
    More students were studying for Bachelor’s degrees than for any other level of tertiary education in each of the EU Member States in 2015. Indeed, France, Austria and Luxembourg were the only Member States where fewer than 50 % of all tertiary students were studying for Bachelor’s degrees. By contrast, in Ireland (75.2 %), the Netherlands (76.8 %), Lithuania (76.9 %), more than three quarters of tertiary students were studying for Bachelor’s degrees and this share rose to almost nine tenths in Greece (88.4 %), while high shares were also recorded for Serbia (80.8 %) and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (93.4 %).

    Less than one fifth of all tertiary students were studying for a Master’s degrees in 2015 in Latvia, Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, the United Kingdom and Ireland (as well as Serbia), with this share falling below one tenth in Greece (as well as in Turkey and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia). By contrast, more than one third of tertiary students were studying for Master’s degrees in the Czech Republic, Portugal, Cyprus, Croatia, France, Luxembourg, Slovakia and Italy.

    In 2015, the highest proportion of tertiary students studying for Doctoral degrees among the EU Member States was 8.3 % in Luxembourg, while a higher share was recorded for Liechtenstein (15.2 %). Aside from these relatively small countries, the next highest shares among the EU Member States were recorded in Germany and Finland (both 6.6 %), while among the non-member countries shown in Table 1 a share of 8.0 % was recorded in Switzerland.
