Details Details
  • If you would like to graduate with a second level teacher qualification to teach two science subjects then the BSc Science (with Education) is for you.
  • Study for four years as an undergraduate for a two-subject Science degree, while also completing 60 credits in Education. After four years you are awarded a BSc Science (with Education) degree – a level 8 honours degree. To become a fully qualified teacher, you must complete one further year.
  • Having graduated with the Level 8 BSc Science (with Education) degree after four years, you are guaranteed a place in year five - the one year Level 9 Professional Master of Education. At the end of year five, you will be a fully qualified and registered second level science teacher.

Why choose this degree?

  • By choosing this degree you will have a range of options open to you after four years. Having studied Science and Education for four years you are awarded a BSc Science (with Education) degree - a level 8 honours degree. You can decide to exit the programme at this stage or stay on for one more year of postgraduate study which will result in the Level 9 Professional Master of Education degree. This extra year is required in order to meet the Teaching Council requirements to be registered as a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) in two subjects.
  • Having completed the five years of the BSc Science (with Education) degree, students have a Professional Master of Education (PME). Graduates from this programme are on an equal footing with graduates from the consecutive route (i.e. four year BSc followed by two year PME). Through this pathway you are fully qualified after five years rather than taking the six year route.
