Applications and interviews

All applications for PGCE courses are processed through the UCAS Teacher Training website.

There is no fixed deadline for applications. However, we do close courses when all places have been filled. As our PGCE courses are very popular, we recommend that you submit your application as soon as possible.

Our admissions panel will assess your application, and if you are successful we will invite you to an interview day. We aim to notify you of our decision within 40 working days of receiving your application.

Interview days

The interview process takes place over a half-day at our Oxford Road campus. It includes:

  • an introductory talk
  • a personal interview designed to identify your suitability and commitment to teaching
  • a short presentation (PGCE Primary only)
  • a short teaching task and subject knowledge assessment (PGCE Secondary only)
  • identity and qualification checks (please provide photographic ID, proof of address and copies of your academic qualifications)
