    Hey I'm planning to do a combined degree of Business and Media (Dual)

    One of my prospects is to teach Media at further education..

    Would I be considered/accepted on the PGCE course for further education if I held a degree where Media is half of the qualification?

    I don't know about the situation for Further Education, but for a standard PGCE, absolutely (and I don't see why it would be different for FE).

    The guidelines are that 50% of your degree should be in the subject you want to teach.

    I have a degree in French and History, and have been offered a place on a Secondary French PGCE.

    Normally you need to have studied a degree where at least 50% of the course was in the subject you'd like to teach, and your course sounds perfectly fine. Check with admissions just to make sure though.
