The British Council Kuala Lumpur runs an Orientation Course to help you prepare for DELTA. The next DELTA Orientation Course is Monday 24 August to Friday 4 September 2020 (Monday 31 August is a public holiday). Apply through the Distance DELTA website.

DELTA (Diploma in English Language Teaching) is for practising teachers who wish to further develop. Our teachers do the online course with Distance DELTA ( If you would like to undertake DELTA, contact Distance DELTA directly. The British Council Kuala Lumpur is not a provider of the face to face DELTA.

In order to undertake DELTA you need:

  • at least one class that you will teach regularly throughout the DELTA course
  • someone qualified to act as your local tutor. Unfortunately, the British Council is unable to provide you with a local tutor.
  • access to appropriate library facilities

More information about experience and requirements is available on the Distance DELTA website.

We are also the Malaysian venue for the DELTA module 1 examination. The examination is offered twice a year, on the first Wednesday of June and December. You can register through your course provider or directly with us by contacting us here.
