    The soon-to-merge IoE is supposed to be the world's number one in the education department so if you are another League Table-loving TSRian you could try there.

    UCB is University College Birmingham. It is in Birmingham, and offers teacher training courses.

    The Institute of Education (IOE), which is in London and specialises in teacher education, is due to merge with University College London (UCL), which is also in London, and does not at present offer teacher training courses.

    Reading comprehension, Juichiro. Reading comprehension.

    lol OP asked two questions, one in the title and the other one in the post. I answered the one in the post. Perhaps, you should read carefully before providing misguided advice. I advised OP to try in IoE which offers teacher training courses. Read and think. Read. And think.

    P.S. And learn to use TSR (read the FAQ and some general info?). Quotes exist for a reason. Use them.

    The Institute of Education in University of London is indeed No 1 globally in the field of education, and it does have very good academic reputation globally. The thing is, the studies of education is quite different from wanting to be trained as a teacher. With PGCEs and PGDEs, I don't really think it matters too much where you do it as long as it's not somewhere dodgy, and doing it at Oxbridge will probably not help you much either.

    With regards to University College Birmingham, they do seem like one of those who just take money and hand out degrees to everyone, or at least from what I can see from the ads in Hong Kong. Some of their degrees are accredited and awarded by The University of Birmingham though, which would be quite good for education.
