Level 5 qualification
The majority of our students are already employed in education settings. This qualification provides them with greater security in their employment, but also gives access to a greater range of employment associated with holding a Bachelors degree. This includes the pursuit of Qualified Teacher Status through a PGCE or GTP (Graduate Teacher Programme). Using this route into teaching takes just one year more than the traditional full-time undergraduate pathway, but allows students to continue working while studying.
Students are responsible for meeting the cost of any essential textbooks, and of producing such essays, assignments and dissertations as are required to fulfil the academic requirements for each programme of study.
There will also be further costs for the following, not purchasable from the University:
- Printing and copying
- Inclusive Education (Foundation Degree)
