Applicants for the programmes must normally be graduates of this or another University or of the C.N.A.A., with an upper 2nd class honours or above (successful completion of a masters level PGCE will classify as 'above'), or have other specially approved qualifications which satisfy the Admissions Sub-Committee that they are suitably qualified to undertake the programme.
GCSE English and Maths (Grade C or higher) or equivalent is required.
Teaching experience may be considered appropriate in some cases (see pathway specific specifications). However all students must normally demonstrate a personal or professional interest in the academic study of education.
Months of entry
The Postgraduate Certificate in Education (International) is being offered through a collaborative partnership with the International School of Geneva. The course will run for one academic year.
The PGCE (International) is composed of three modules, a professional module and two academic modules, at Masters level. The professional module consists of a set of standards linked to tasks which the students must show evidence of having successfully completed. This part of the course will be primarily school-based, centred at the Campus des Nations, but with students observing, and being on 'school experience', on all three campuses of the Foundation.
Please note: teaching of the course takes place in Geneva.
Successful completion of the programme can also lead to International Baccalaureate Certificate in Teaching and Learning (Level 1) providing IBO requirements for this award have been completed at an appropriate level.
