Your University Questions, Answered.
Is it possible to do a PGCE after completing an English language course?
UEA’s Primary and Secondary PGCE programmes have been developed in close partnership with East Anglian schools and are informed by professional practice and academic excellence.
Depending on which level you wish to teach (Primary or Secondary), here are the general entry requirements (please check the specific course page entry requirements for the course you are interested in for further information before you apply):
- Primary PGCE – You will need a good honours degree (2:2 or above) or equivalent by the beginning of the PGCE programme in September. You should have a GCSE pass at Grade C or an equivalent qualification in English Language, Mathematics and a natural science subject (Biology, Chemistry, Physics or a combination of these).
- Secondary PGCE – You will need to have achieved a degree or equivalent by the beginning of the PGCE programme in September. As a general guideline approximately 50% of your degree should be relevant to the subject you wish to teach at Secondary level. You also need a GCSE pass at Grade C or an equivalent qualification in English Language and Mathematics.
