Course structure

Bachelor of Education (BEd) teacher training programmes are an undergraduate route, typically lasting 3 years, usually for those who would like to follow a career in primary teaching, and graduate with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Programs combine academic study on campus with placements in at least two schools.

Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BSc) degrees with QTS are popular with prospective secondary school teachers and focus on developing specialist subject knowledge required to teach, however, some providers also offer a BA in Primary Education with QTS. Your study will also include placement in schools.
