Entry Requirements

Normally an honours degree, or equivalent qualification, in the subject specialism or a subject that is directly relevant.

GCSE (minimum grade C or grade 4): At least English language and maths. In-house equivalence tests are available for suitable candidates.

While experience in a school is not a condition of entry for initial teacher education courses we recommend that you take up opportunities to gain a realistic understanding of whether teaching is right for you. The Get Into Teaching School Experience Programme offers opportunities across the country to book a day’s worth of experience.

Student Profile(s)

Olivia Broadbent Smith

"I chose the University of Brighton as I knew they have an excellent (Secondary) Art and Design PGCE and a high standard of subject knowledge to help develop my own practice.

"A highlight of this course for me was the level of support from everyone, in particular from my cohort who were really encouraging. Working so closely with peers allowed us to support one another and provided a really strong network to share experiences and ideas.

"The workshops we participated in, the visits to galleries and museums and school visits were invaluable to me. All these elements of the course were helpful in developing my creative practice, they also gave me confidence in suggesting new techniques and approaches whilst in school-based training. The resources developed during these sessions have since become a great source of reference for my NQT year."
