The international PGCE
iPGCE (Hull based)

The Faculty of Education at the University of Hull has developed a specific route for international students to study a postgraduate Initial Teacher Training programme in either primary (5 - 11 year old pupils) or secondary education (12 - 16 year old pupils)

Training and qualifications

  • As an international student you will study with our home students and undertake rigorous practical training. You will explore pedagogy, professional practice and subject studies and spend a considerable time in English schools learning alongside experienced teachers and mentors whilst being observed and monitored.
  • You will be unable to gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), which is the licence to teach in UK schools, as this is reserved for home students. However, on successful completion of the programme of study, you will receive a PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate of Education) from the University of Hull showing that you are a well-trained practitioner with excellent skills and knowledge to apply upon return to your own country.
  • Successful completion of the programme will also provide 60 credits at Masters Level. The Faculty of Education offers a range of ways in which students may continue to achieve a full Masters degree within a further year.
