Eligibility
  1. Welcome to the UCAS Teacher Training Apply registration page. Please read the following carefully before continuing.

    UCAS processes applications received by the UCAS Teacher Training Apply scheme for ITET training programmes delivered at universities, colleges and schools (SCITTs, School Direct and School Direct (salaried)) in England, Scotland and Wales. The training programmes all lead to one or more of these awards:

    • Postgraduate or Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE)
    • Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE)
    • Recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) or Teaching Qualification (TQ).

    All training providers are seeking applications from those who are personally and academically suitable for the teaching profession. You must hold, or expect to obtain by the time of entry, certain minimum academic qualifications. Each training provider is responsible for its own recruitment and admissions policy, and some providers require more than these minimum requirements. It is up to the training provider to decide whether a qualification meets its criteria. It is, therefore, important that you check your chosen training providers' entry requirements to confirm that your qualifications are appropriate for their training programmes for which you intend to apply. Further information may have been provided by training providers in their Entry Profiles on our online search tool, or you may need to contact the training provider direct.

    Minimum academic entry requirements - for training programmes in England and Wales

    All applicants for postgraduate teacher training should hold, on entry, a degree awarded by a United Kingdom university or other institution empowered to make such awards, or a recognised equivalent qualification.

    All applicants must also, on entry to that training programme, have obtained a grade C or above in GCSE English and mathematics, equivalent qualifications or the knowledge of these subjects required to obtain this level of qualification. Training providers cannot waive this requirement.

    Additionally, all applicants to primary and middle years teacher training programmes must also have a GCSE at grade C or higher in a science subject, an equivalent qualification or the knowledge of science required to obtain this level of qualification. Training providers cannot waive this requirement.

    If you do not possess or expect to obtain suitable formal qualifications in English, mathematics and, if applicable, science, the training provider may offer you an equivalence test to assess whether or not you have attained the required standard in these subjects.

    Applicants should note that satisfying the minimum academic requirements for entry to postgraduate teacher training does not guarantee that a place will be offered. It will be necessary for you to attend an interview before the offer of a place can be made. In recent years there has been great competition for places, especially on primary training programmes and some secondary training programmes.

  1. Minimum academic entry requirements - for training programmes in Scotland

    As some Scottish training providers have specific entry requirements, we recommend that you contact them to find out what these are. They will usually require a transcript of your undergraduate degree study. The 'Memorandum on Entry Requirements to Courses of Initial Teacher Education in Scotland' gives further information about this. Please visit www.scotland.gov.uk/Publications using the keywords 'Memorandum on entry' within the search facility.

    There is also information about the entry requirements for teacher training programmes in Scotland on the UCAS website.

    Fitness to teach

    Training providers will make reasonable adjustments for students with disabilities. If you have a disability, you should provide full details on your application to help providers meet your needs. Additional funding is available for students with disabilities. You can find more information from Student Finance England, Student Awards Agency for Scotland, Student Finance Wales or Student Finance Northern Ireland.

    Working with children - declaration of criminal convictions

    As your proposed training programme involves work with children, you will be required to disclose any previous criminal convictions, cautions or bindovers irrespective of when they occurred and to agree to a criminal record check through the Disclosure and Barring Service or Disclosure Scotland. You do not have to declare any motoring offences for which you received a fine and/or up to three penalty points.
