**For clarity, the cost of a CELTA course is broken down into two parts. The CELTA course fee (£1,684) is the fee for taking the course at IH London, inclusive of all materials and tuition. The Cambridge fee (£170) goes towards the qualification body, Cambridge. Both fees are payable to IH London. Remember, if you book your course within 10 days of receiving a course offer, we will pay the £170 Cambridge fee for you.
