This course attracts Government bursaries of up to £26,000 (depending on qualifications) in line with the government’s priorities to increase the number of Chemistry teachers (2018).
Fees for 2019-2020 are: £9,250 (UK/EU full-time), £16,995 (overseas full-time).
When you apply for this course, it is important that you also take into account living costs and should ensure that you will have sufficient funds to finance the full duration of your studies. Our PGDipEd programmes include a significant amount of time spent on placements in a variety of schools at different locations, and so when budgeting to study you should also allow for travel to and from placements, as well as textbooks, printing, photocopying and stationery that you may need.
