PGCE Funding

Students studying a full-time or part-time Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) can get funding to help with the costs of the course, providing all Student Finance eligibility criteria is met. 

Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) courses attract the same funding as an undergraduate degree course. This means that if eligible, you will be able to apply for tuition fee and living costs support.

EU and International Students are able to apply to study the PGCE but the University cannot guarantee that the PGCE qualification will enable you to teach in your home country. It is your responsibility to check the regulations for your home education jurisdiction.
