The secondary teaching specialisation requires students to choose two curriculum teaching areas, which are determined by the discipline(s) undertaken in the student’s undergraduate degree.

You will be required to undertake a number of Professional Experience placements totalling 60 days. This will give you the opportunity to apply the theoretical and practical skills that you have learnt in a safe and supportive environment.
