The entry requirements listed here are our typical offer for this course if you wish to begin studying with us in 2020. They should be used as a general guide.
Degree and experience
Normally an honours degree, or equivalent qualification, in the subject specialism or a subject that is directly relevant.
If you hold a good honours degree in a science subject, but with less than 50% chemistry, you can undertake a Subject Knowledge Enhancement (Chemistry) programme before starting the PGCE, to develop your subject knowledge. Depending on your need and circumstances, you can choose either a 8, 16 or 28–week programme and take part either face to face at the university, or via distance learning with an additional 15 hours of laboratory work at the university.
GCSE (minimum grade C or grade 4)
At least English language and maths. 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.
