Details
We are generally looking for a good honours degree or equivalent. Some courses also require an interview or the submission of a portfolio of work. Some students apply for our MA having completed their PGCE with the intention of postponing their entry to the profession, whereas others apply before making a decision whether to become a teacher. Some are already teachers who wish to develop their understanding of the role. The content and subject matter of your first degree is open. Some students have educational studies as a first degree, while others studied subjects from marine biology to music, or are experts in alternative fields. In some circumstances, professional work in education (e.g. PGCE) or related field can be assessed as appropriate credit for "prior learning" (APL) and a reduction in the number of credits required to pass the programme can be negotiated.
