Academic entry qualification overview
You must hold qualified teacher status (QTS) or equivalent. The course is also available to those who are qualified to work in further education who have evidence of Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS). You must also hold a relevant honours first degree (Upper Second or above, or equivalent) from an approved higher education institution OR evidence of previous advanced study, research or professional experience that the University accepts as qualifying you for entry. If you do not hold a 2:1 degree, applicants may still be considered on an individual basis, based on professional experience. Please contact the programme team to discuss your suitability to the programme.
For those applicants with teaching qualifications outside of the UK, applicants must evidence that their teaching qualifications are recognised in their home country. They must also evidence that they have all the necessary approvals and registrations to be able to carry out a teaching placement in their home country.
Applicants who have teaching qualifications from outside of the UK would need to apply for equivalency of their qualifications if they would like to request a UK placement.

Specifically, we require a minimum of:
- IELTS: 7.0, including 7.0 in the written section
