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.

History, according to the current national curriculum, "should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past". Our aim is to equip students to do just that, developing their ability to plan meaningful historical experiences for pupils in the 11–16 age range, to teach effectively and to assess their own and their pupils’ achievements.

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 2019/2020 are as follows:
Student type Fees to pay
UK students £9,250
EU students £9,250

Eligible UK and EU students can apply for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of tuition fees from the government which you repay gradually through small monthly repayments.

Financial support

You’ll get a bursary of £12,000 if you have a degree of 2:2 or above in any subject.

You don’t have to apply for a bursary - you’ll automatically start receiving it once you begin your course. Find out how you’ll be paid.
