If you have an interest in all aspects of science; but in particular the chemical and material world and enjoy investigating this in a practical setting, then our science (chemistry) course will suit you. Our course looks at the key ideas which underpin the teaching of science in schools today and the way children's understanding of concepts develops.
We offer routes allowing a main specialism from biology, chemistry, physics or science (which includes Earth and environmental science) for key stage 4 teaching each requiring applicants to demonstrate particular capability in that area with relevant post-16 qualifications.
However all science teachers need to show a willingness to contribute significantly to subject teaching outside this specialism. You will not necessarily be expected to enter the course with an expert knowledge of all areas; therefore top-up courses are available through the university during the course.
The PGCE in science (chemistry) is offered only on a full-time basis.
