WHAT CAREER CAN YOU HAVE?
In addition to the many master’s and PhD graduates, each year we have over 500 students become newly qualified teachers (NQTs). Our excellent links with local schools ensure that our employment rates are consistently high, with 100% going on to work or study after the programme and 95% in employment within six months of the programme.
With pay scales to match other industries, job security, an excellent pension and better work-life balance, teaching is becoming one of the most sought-after professions of today. Our master’s and professional programmes have allowed many teachers to gain promotion within their institutions. A number of students also continue their studies on to EdD/ PhD programmes to develop a career in educational research.
Education - MA
page on the University of Reading website for more details!
A good first or second class honours degree (or equivalent from a university outside the UK). Apart from the standard university entry requirements, we normally expect students to have a professional background in education with experience of teaching. Ideally we would like students to have had at least two years’ experience of teaching but will consider applications from good students with at least one year’s experience. If you have a slightly lower degree qualification than usual, this can be compensated for by good teaching experience. IELTS: 6.5 overall with no element less than 6.0 (or equivalent).
