Take note: All teaching modules will not necessarily be offered every year. A minimum number of students per module are required.

Admission Requirements

You must have at least a bachelor’s degree from a recognised university, which meets certain conditions.

Specific admission requirements for Teaching modules

– As a rule, a second-year subject or a third-year subject (comprising a single year module or two-semester modules) in your teaching areas, depending on the specific prerequisite pass requirements for each Teaching module.

– You will not be allowed to attempt to meet the admission requirements of a Teaching subject by doing undergraduate modules simultaneously to the relevant Teaching subject.

– See “Programme content for the PGCE programme” for the provisions and prerequisite pass requirements for each Teaching module.
