Course Summary

Description

The Postgraduate Certificate in Education (International) is being offered through a collaborative partnership with the International School of Geneva. The course will run for one academic year.

The PGCE (International) is composed of three modules, a professional module and two academic modules, at Masters level. The professional module consists of a set of standards linked to tasks which the students must show evidence of having successfully completed. This part of the course will be primarily school-based, centered at the Campus des Nations, but with students observing, and being on 'school experience', on all three campuses of the Foundation.

Please note: the teaching of this course takes place in Geneva.

Successful completion of the course can also lead to International Baccalaureate Certificate in Teaching and Learning (Level 1) providing IBO requirements for this award have been completed at an appropriate level.

Admissions Process

Subject requirements, level and grade

Applicants for the course must normally be graduates of this or another University or of the C.N.A.A., with an upper 2nd class honours or above (successful completion of a masters level PGCE will classify as 'above'), or have other specially approved qualifications which satisfy the Admissions Sub-Committee that they are suitably qualified to undertake the course.

GCSE English, Science and Maths Grade 4 (or C) or higher or equivalent. 

Teaching experience may be considered appropriate in some cases (see pathway specific specifications). However, all students must normally demonstrate a personal or professional interest in the academic study of education.
