Details
We are looking for applicants with a 2:1 or above in their first degree. We expect applicants to have at least good A level French, Spanish or German, preferably to degree level, or to have spent time living in a French, Spanish or German-speaking country. Some experience of a second language would be an advantage, but is not essential. While as standard we normally only accept applicants who meet this criteria, if you have a 2:2 or equivalent, or are coming from a different academic background which is equivalent to degree level, you are welcome to make an application through UCAS for consideration or contact our PGCE Admissions team for more information. We advise all applicants to gain some school-based experience in a state school prior to interview. Although this is not essential it would be an advantage to be able to reflect on any school-based experience or experience working with young people in another context at interview. Passes at GCSE in English, Mathematics and Science at Grade C. Please note that although the DfE requirement is a grade C, we will generally only consider applicants with a grade B or above in Mathematics and English and a grade C in Science.
