About the course

Financial support

You could be eligible for either:

  • a bursary of £26,000

To qualify for a scholarship you’ll need a degree of 2:1 or above in Physics or a related subject. For a bursary you’ll need a 2:2 or above in any subject.

You can’t claim both a bursary and a scholarship - you can only claim one.

About the accredited body

The Institute of Education at The University of Reading has been in the top 10 for over a decade in the UK for Education (The Guardian University League Table 2019.)

One of our strengths, as recognised by Ofsted, is the high quality of support we provide to schools and Reading Partnership Teachers (RPTs) on placement.

Many of our RPTs go on to secure jobs in their placement schools, so active engagement with the IoE partnership in training new teachers is an excellent way to recruit NQTs to your school.
