Please read the following application process guidelines carefully if you are considering applying to study one of our teacher training programmes.
PGCE Primary and PGCE Secondary
Applications for PGCE Primary and Secondary programmes are made via UCAS. Full details of how to complete an application are provided on the UCAS website. When applying for one of our programmes search ‘UCL’ in the choices section of your UCAS application, or enter the training provider code U80.
The application cycle opens in October each year and applications are considered on a rolling basis, therefore you are encouraged to apply as early as possible, as programmes may close as soon as places are filled. Once your application has been received it will be forwarded to UCL for consideration. Applications close on 7 August 2020.
Applications are processed through UCAS, which charges a fee of £1 – see the UCAS website for details. There is no additional fee from UCL.
Early Years and Post-Compulsory Teacher Training
Applications for our Early Years Initial Teacher Training (EYITT) and Post-Compulsory PGCE programmes are made directly to UCL. There is no application fee for these programmes. The application cycle opens in October each year and applications are considered on a rolling basis, therefore you are advised to apply as early as possible, as programmes may close as soon as places are filled.
Applications close for EYITT on 7 August 2020. Applicants who are successful at the shortlist stage will be invited to attend an interview.
Applications for the Post-Compulsory PGCE programme are no longer being accepted.
Applicants wishing to transfer to UCL
Unfortunately, we are unable to accept transfers into any of our teacher training programmes. This is due to the short nature of the programmes. If you have any questions about applying for teacher training at UCL, please contact the Teacher Training Admissions team.
UCL can assist you with any advice you may need about applying to and studying at UCL. Details of English language support, the Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS), funding and information for visiting research students, as well as country-specific information can be found at the links below.
UCL is firmly committed to equality of opportunity and applicants with disabilities or medical conditions are considered on the same basis as all other applicants.
If you tell us about a disability on your application this will help us ensure we can meet your needs and will prompt us to send you more information about our services.
We are happy to arrange information visits to UCL so that you can find out more about the physical environment and facilities or discuss support arrangements with us in person.
If you would like to discuss your individual needs or have questions about the support that might be available to you, please contact us at any stage of the application process.
