You could access a Get Into Teaching bursary or scholarship. Your eligibility, and the amount you can expect to receive, will depend on the subject in which you train and your degree classification, or highest relevant academic qualification.
If you’re looking to train on a non-salaried postgraduate teacher training course but are not eligible to receive a bursary or a scholarship, you could be eligible for a tuition fee and maintenance loan.
The University currently subsidises travel to school placements, where the journey to the placement is longer than the normal journey from home to University. You will be expected to pay at least the first £5 (equivalent to the first 25 miles). For journeys over 25 miles per day, costs will be paid directly into your bank account.
Institute of Physics scholarships
If you have a first or 2.1 degree, PhD, or masters degree, you may qualify for an IOP Teacher Training Scholarship. Find out more by visiting the IOP website.
We offer two ways to complete our PGCE with recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
School Direct Training
The University works in close partnership with a wide range of schools, academies and teaching school alliances. You complete most of your school experience in one host School Direct establishment with a further 30 days in another school to ensure that you gain experience of different teaching environments. Academic theory will be delivered at the University campus.
School Direct institutions may offer
- School Direct ‘training’ places to suit graduates who may be eligible for training bursary of up to £30,000.
- School Direct ‘salaried’ places to suit graduates with at least three years’ work experience. You’ll be employed by the school and earn a salary as you train.
