About the course

School Direct (Tuition Fee) is a school-led route into teaching at both primary and secondary stages. On this route you will join other student teachers on one of the PGCE programmes at the IOE while undertaking your teaching experience in a participating school. The UCAS application will go to the relevant school.

Interview process

Candidates whose application form shows that they meet our short-listing criteria will be invited to an Interview Day.

The selection process will usually involve:

*A classroom-based task

*Time with staff/departments

*A formal interview

*A written task

We recommend that you aim to gain some experience in a classroom prior to interview.

How school placements work

You will spend the majority of time in your main placement school but will also be required to carry out a 2nd placement at another school which is usually for a period of 6 weeks.

Your 2nd placement will provide you with an excellent opportunity to compare and contrast different approaches to all aspects of teaching.

Fees

The course fees for 2020/2021 are as follows:
Student type Fees to pay
UK students £9,150
EU students £9,150

Financial support

You could be eligible for either:

  • a scholarship of £28,000
  • a bursary of £26,000

With a scholarship or bursary, you'll also get early career payments of £2,000 each in your second, third and fourth years of teaching (£3,000 in some areas of England).

To qualify for a scholarship you’ll need a degree of 2:1 or above in Chemistry 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.

Find out how to apply for a scholarship. You don’t need to apply for a bursary - if you’re eligible, you’ll automatically start receiving it once you begin your course. Find out about eligibility for bursaries and how you’ll be paid.

You may also be eligible for a loan while you study.
