    a friend of mine will be going to an american university for 3-4 years to get a B.S in Physics. She has always wanted to be a secondary teacher but is starting to worry that she will not be able to do a PGCE when she returns to the UK as her degree will be from the US and she has heard that they are not of equal standard to a UK bachelors degree as they have broader requirements.

    Does anyone know if she will still be able to do the PGCE when she returns?
    or has anyone on here been accepted onto a PGCE course with a degree from abroad?

    Please help.

    thanks in advance

    If she is getting First professional degree she will be fine, but the other one (Bachelor degree) says n/a....

    Best thing to do is to contact http://www.naric.org.uk/index.asp?page=22

    Also, some universities also explicitly ask for a degree from a British university.

    It would depend on the institution, but having been to British schools would work in her favour as well as the massive shortage of physics teachers overall.
