Advice to applicants
This programme attracts a large number of applicants for a very limited number of places. The School considers a range of factors in the GTTR application other than the entry requirements.
How your application is considered
Applicants who are shortlisted based on their application will be invited to attend an interview day.
Overseas (non-UK) applicants
Applicants holding qualifications from outside of the UK should apply to UK NARIC for a comparability statement to confirm the equivalence of their qualifications. This should be completed prior to application where possible. Successful applicants will be required to present officially translated copies of their qualification certificates.
Aptitude test requirement
PGCE students must pass the Professional Skills Tests prior to commencing the course. Preference will be given to those applicants who have passed their skills tests at the time of interview however we will interview those who have not yet passed their tests. Please refer to the Department for Education for further advice about registering to take your skills tests.
Applications for deferred entry cannot be considered, apart from exceptional circumstances, for example, when an applicant is abroad during the preceding interview period.
If you applied in the previous year and your application was not successful you may apply again. Your application will be considered against the standard course entry criteria for that year of entry. In your new application you should demonstrate how your application has improved. We may draw upon all information from your previous applications or any previous registrations at the University as a student when assessing your suitability for your chosen course.If you are applying for a place for the same year of entry through UCAS Extra, you should provide additional evidence of your suitability for the course. If you are applying through clearing you are required to meet the clearing requirements. In both UCAS Extra and clearing the places will be subject to availability.
Due to the nature of the PGCE course, applications for transfers cannot be considered.
