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.
Interviews normally take place in person on our Falmer campus or in one of your partner schools. From March 2020, all interviews will take place over Skype.
All offers of places are subject to required regulatory checks including an occupational health check and a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) enhanced check.
