Applicants should normally possess a good honours degree (2:2 Hons min.). In some cases an honours degree below a lower second class may be considered if the applicant also has a Master's qualification. All applicants must possess GCSEs (grade C or above) in English Language, mathematics and science before the PGCE course begins, or equivalents acceptable to the University. Primary Language applicants will also need A level proficiency or equivalent in terms of life experiences in the specialist language. Applicants are also required to have gained a minimum of ten days recent state primary school experience (prior to applying) and have passed the skills tests in literacy and numeracy.
