Introduction to route

PGCEs are designed to enhance and increase academic training, preparing students for life as a teacher. Usually taking one academic year to complete full time, and two years part time.

A PGCE will increase your academic knowledge and provide you with the flexibility to teach internationally.

A popular postgraduate academic qualification, the PGCE focuses on developing your teaching skills and underpinning your knowledge. PGCE’s are available for primary and secondary.

If your degree subject doesn’t link closely to the subject you intend to teach at secondary level, you can take a subject knowledge enhancement course as part of your application for some subjects.

You can take out a postgraduate loan to support your tuition and living costs, and in some cases may be eligible for a non-repayable bursary of up to £26,000.
