Just saw an ad for KFUPM

Here's my deal:

UK Single Male
BA English Literature/Biblical Studies
Grad Dip in TEFL
MA TESOL
20 years TESOL experience (19 verifiable I guess)
Past 9 years Teaching Uni in Korea

My Grad Dip was done onsite at a British University in 1997.

But, In 2009 I applied to upgrade this Dip to an MA TESOL. They agreed. I had to complete some Research Methods modules and my thesis by distance. Completed 2011.

Does this mean that not only the MA, but the 7 years post MA experience are all effectively useless to me?

Thanks:)

For work visa purposes, your UK university would be required to verify the mode of study (i.e., on campus vs. distance/online).

You'd really have to apply to find out how your quals are evaluated. It's up to you whether to be transparent about it if offered an interview.
