Entry Criteria


Those wishing to apply to the programme must fulfil the following criteria before making an application:

  • An honours degree in any discipline, awarded by a UK Higher Education Institution (or recognised equivalent qualification).
  • Grade C or above in GCSE English, Maths and Science.

Prior experience in a school is not required.

We welcome candidates who have studied outside the UK, but trainees will need to check first with ENIC to establish if their qualifications are equivalent to UK GCSEs, A levels or an undergraduate degree.

Fees & Funding

The School Direct tuition fees for 2022 are £9,250.

This route is open to all graduates and is funded by tuition fees paid by the trainee.

Candidates can apply to the Student Loans Company for a tuition fee loan to be paid on their behalf. Candidates may also be eligible for a maintenance loan and/or grant dependent upon their circumstances.
