Taught course

PGCE Secondary: Media Studies with English

Goldsmiths, University of London · Educational Studies

Entry requirements

Goldsmiths will only accept as passes Grades A, B and C at GCSE, conducted by an approved examination board. As well as UK qualifications, we accept many equivalent overseas qualifications. To check to see if your qualifications are of an equivalent standard to the UK academic entry requirements for this PGCE programme we recommend that you contact UK NARIC. You'll need to enter the details of your relevant qualifications on your PGCE application form. You are also required to provide scanned copies of your qualifications (alongside official translations where original documents are not in English) within 14 days of being requested. If English isn’t your first language you will also be required to have a recognised qualification in English Language Proficiency. If you don’t have a first degree awarded by a generally recognised institution in the UK, please note that the award of the PGCE and QTS does not in itself confer graduate status for the purposes of salary. Salaries in such cases are determined by employing authorities and not by the College or by the relevant government department. Please note, this course attracts applicants of a strong calibre. Consequently competition for places is very high. Students lacking a good honours degree in a relevant subject, significant experience both in the industry and in schools need to be aware that they may not be called to interview.
