GCSE English Language and Mathematics at grade 4 (or C) or above (or recognised equivalents). Please be aware that whilst these GCSEs are not mandatory at application point, these qualifications must be obtained by enrolment. See our page on additional GCSE Equivalency test information.
School experience is not a requirement for entry to the programme. However, having experience in a school will support your preparation for training as a teacher.

At interview you will be asked about any experiences that you have with school aged children and your understanding of teaching within your chosen age range. The quality and variety of your personal statement is an important factor in the decision to call you to interview.
You will need to obtain Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) clearance and meet the requirements for fitness to train to teach prior to starting the course and be assured against a set of fundamental maths and English skills by the end of your PGCE. For more information on your DBS application please visit the How do I complete my DBS form advice page.

For full entry requirements please see our admission requirements page.
Subject Knowledge Enhancement
If your degree does not include enough of your subject of interest, or if you just need a refresher course, the Department for Education sponsors several Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) courses. Newman’s SKE course will provide subject knowledge support for those wishing to teach in the above areas. There is an expectation that students would have studied the subject at A level or equivalent. Visit the Subject Knowledge Enhancement page for further information on what subject areas Newman currently offer.
Newman University is not licenced by the UK Government to sponsor migrant students under the Student route and is therefore unable to accept applications from international students at present.
If you have any questions regarding entry onto this course please contact our friendly and helpful admissions team via our Admissions Enquiry Form
The full-time course fee for September 2022 is £9,250.
The University will review tuition fees and increase fees in line with any inflationary uplift as determined by the UK Government, if permitted by law or government policy, in subsequent years of your course. It is anticipated that such increases would be linked to RPI (the Retail Price Index excluding mortgage interest payments).
A Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) is required for entry into this programme. Find out more about completing the DBS application form and the related additional costs that you will incur.
