Academic Requirements

You need the following GPA score:

Required score: Upper Second Class

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to Upper Second Class on the UK Honour scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on the UK Honour scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

General Requirements

  • 2:1 Hons in a relevant degree, not necessarily in education, but a good practical knowledge of education is required
  • Evidence of prior practical experience of working directly with learners in an educational setting in either a paid or voluntary capacity
  • Clear interest in the course demonstrated with explanation and evidence in the personal statement
  • Strong commitment to working in the broad field of education throughout the duration of the course and in the future
  • The course can offer accreditation of prior learning (APL) of up to 60 credits to candidates with appropriate experience and qualifications such as a PGCE

Work Experience

  • Course assessments require students to reflect on their experiences of working directly with learners within an education or learning environment.
  • It is therefore expected that students will join the course having already gained at least 200 hours of relevant work experience.
