Why choose IOE?

Learn to teach with the best

The UCL Institute of Education (IOE) has been ranked number one in the world for education for the past eight years. Our PGCE programmes are rated Outstanding by Ofsted across all subjects and phases.

Teach in London, teach anywhere

More London schools choose to partner with the IOE for teacher training placements than any other university. 

The IOE approach

Every PGCE student at the IOE has a personal tutor who is an expert in the curriculum and pedagogy of their subject, and placement mentors who will support you in your placements. 

Leading education for future generations

As a new teacher, you will be responsible for developing the minds of the children you teach, and the challenge is to equip them for a world we cannot foresee.

At the IOE, you will join one of the world’s most dynamic education research communities, tapping into social science and psychology as well as education.
