We provide opportunities for Education majors who require a semester of student teaching to complete their degree. GDQ has hosted student teachers from Taylor University, Liberty University, Lipscomb University, Bethel University, Grace College, Michigan State University, University of Jyvaskyla (Finland), and Driestar Christian University (The Netherlands).
We will place you in a classroom that fulfills your university’s practicum requirements. We have had student teachers working in elementary classrooms as well as specific High School and Middle School subjects alongside the main classroom teacher. You will be included in all staff activities and retreats as well as curriculum reviews and professional development trainings.

GDQ will organize your accommodation for your time in-country and support you as you orient to your new surroundings. You’ll enjoy the beautiful Albanian landscape during your free time, interacting with GDQ staff, learning about local ministries and connecting to a local church community. 

Tirana is situated just 45 minutes away from hiking in the Skanderbeg mountain range and swimming in the Adriatic Sea. With over 200 days of sun a year, Tirana is one of the sunniest cities in Europe.

All student teachers are provided a mentor teacher during their semester and will be a part of a broader network of experienced GDQ teachers who are eager to advise and assist you in and out of the classroom.


All applicants must have a personal faith in Jesus Christ, believing that a relationship with God is made possible through faith in the atoning work of Jesus Christ and not by personal merit or effort.

Teaching applicants must have a four-year university degree. A valid teaching certificate from their home country is preferred.

All international staff raise some of their finances.  Most do this through a missions sending organization. However, the school provides the following financial support.

  • GDQ teacher housing allowance. Depending on the apartment, this covers the majority of the cost of renting an apartment.
  • GDQ travel allowance.This helps make it possible for teachers to fly back to their home country once a year.
  • College debt reduction. We partner with an organization that reduces college debt for teachers that make a long-term commitment.
  • Master’s degree tuition assistance. Through our agreement with ACSI, GDQ teachers completing qualifying Master’s degrees may qualify to receive financial assistance.

Language requirement for non-native English-speaking applicants

  • CEFR minimum C1 (tested and certified). C2 is preferable.
  • IELTS 7 or above on the academic test, not the general training test (tested and certified).
  • TOEFL iBT 110-120 (tested and certified).
