Ulster offer PGCE courses at Coleraine Campus in both Primary teaching and Post-Primary teaching. There are opportunities for Post-Primary in the following subject areas:
- Art and Design
- English, Drama and Media Studies
- Home Economics
- Physical Education
- Technology and Design
To meet the eligibility criteria, you will need to have completed GCSE English and Mathematics at Grade C or above (Essential/Functional Skills do not satisfy the requirements from the General Teaching Council so cannot be used as an equivalence). For Primary, you also require a minimum of one Science subject at GCSE Grade C or above.
In addition to the GCSE requirements, an honours degree at 2:2 or above is also required.
For Post-Primary courses, your degree must have a minimum of 50% in the cognitive area you wish to teach. In the event of courses receiving more applicants that can realistically be interviewed, supplemental requirements will be used to shortlist.
For Primary, your degree also needs to cover a minimum of 50% of a subject in the primary curriculum. More details on the subject areas we accept (and those we don't can be found here).
