Other Options

If you haven’t got a degree already and want to teach early years, primary or over 14s, you may also be interested in studying one of our other Education courses:

Guaranteed interviews for our PGCE Primary

If you complete one of these degrees and meet the entry requirements for our PGCE Primary, we will guarantee you an interview during your final year of undergraduate study (subject to places being available).

Places on our PGCE are highly sought after, so we recommend you apply as early as possible once UCAS opens.

Terms and conditions:

  • There are a limited number of places on the PGCE Primary. Once the course is full, applications will close and no further interviews will be held
  • Interviews are guaranteed for students who meet the entry requirements for the PGCE Primary, including GCSE grades, degree classification, experience and successful completion of the Skills Tests
  • An interview does not guarantee an offer to study on the course

"After attending an Open Day I quickly understood the course at Derby provided a real flexibility, as it allowed me to utilise my current place of work as my university placement."

Sam Kellogg, BA (Hons) Child and Youth Studies


"I wanted to gain a holistic view of childhood from a health, education and social care perspective before completing a PGCE, and this degree provided me with the perfect opportunity to do this."
