Applications for all PGCE courses should be made through UCAS Teacher Training. Entry requirements can be found on each course page.

There are two kinds of PGCE you can study with us:

  • School Direct – where you are based at a school
  • Standard PGCE – where you are based at university and go to school on placement.

Vacancy status on all our courses can be found on the UCAS Teacher Training website under the Course Search facility. For university-based PGCEs, search under ‘University of Cumbria’. For School Direct PGCEs, search under the lead school or alliance as listed on our School Direct information pages.

The application cycle will open on 27 October 2015 and will be available for a minimum of two weeks. To guarantee consideration, you must submit your application within the first two weeks.

Applications will no longer be considered when courses become full, but may re-open if vacancies arise. You are advised to regularly check UCAS Teacher Training.

What information should I include on my application?

Email address – almost all our correspondence will be via email. Please use a personal email address rather than a work/university address. It will also help if you ensure our email address is saved as a ‘safe recipient’ in your email profile.

Reference – if you are in your final year or have completed your degree within the last five years, you must provide an academic reference as the principal reference on your application. If your degree was studied over five years ago, provide a professional reference from your current/previous employer. You can also indicate, as your second referee, the school in which you completed your school experience.

Qualifications – you should provide details of all your qualifications, including GCSEs and A Levels and include a module breakdown of your degree.  This helps us to assess your breadth of subject knowledge.
