This is a highly successful postgraduate route into teaching. We strongly encourage applications from candidates with the potential to become outstanding teachers in this intensive and mainly school-based programme.
The entry requirements listed here are our typical offer for this course. They should be used as a general guide.
Degree and experience
Normally an honours degree, or equivalent qualification.
A realistic awareness of the teaching profession with the capacity to thrive in a demanding and fast moving environment. When applying, please use your personal statement to illustrate this.
GCSE (minimum grade C or grade 4)
At least English language, maths and a science. In-house equivalence tests are available for suitable candidates.
While experience in a school is not a condition of entry for initial teacher education courses we recommend that you take up opportunities to gain a realistic understanding of whether teaching is right for you. The Get Into Teaching School Experience Programme offers opportunities across the country to book a day’s worth of experience.
If your application is successful you will be invited to attend an interview in person at the Falmer campus where we have a number of structured activities aimed at allowing you to show your potential.
All offers of places are subject to required regulatory checks including an occupational health check and a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) enhanced check.
