Situated between the Snowdonia mountain range and the sea, you’ll be in a stunning study location that particularly appeals to students with an interest in outdoor activities.
Most of our courses can by studied through the medium of Welsh, English or bilingually. Visit our website for full details on all the courses we offer.
The Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is a one-year, full-time course. Students will spend a substantial part of their course on a number of placements in partner schools, under the guidance of both school mentors and university tutors. A PGCE with QTS is recognised across Wales and England and is often transferable further afield for entry into the teaching profession.
The Primary PGCE programme is designed to provide you with a deep understanding of how children learn, and equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to develop as a creative and innovative teacher.
The Secondary PGCE programmes are designed to provide you with a deep understanding of how children and adolescents learn, and equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to develop as a creative and innovative teacher.
PGCE Secondary Education subjects available include: Art, Biology, Chemistry, Design & Technology, English, Geography, History, Information Technology, Mathematics, Modern Languages, Music, Outdoor Activities, Physical Education, Physics & Religious Education.
Education Studies is offered on both a full- and part-time basis. The full-time programme includes a placement module, while the part-time course is taught during weekends or evenings, and may therefore be suited to students who are already working in a related field.
The Applied Innovation Design course will prepare you to take a leading/active role in enabling a change in whatever field you choose, through the experiential application of current theory and commercial practices.
This is a new course that is under development and is expected to be offered for 2020 entry. Details will appear on this page as soon as they are available.
