    I've chosen Education Studies as my course to study in uni, however, I'm starting to think I may have made the wrong decision!
    I know I really want to pursue a career in teaching, I was leaning towards teaching secondary school, but don't think it;s possible to do a PGCE in secondary teaching with Education Studies!

    Does anybody who's doing/has done this degree have any advice?

    Thanks in advance!

    P.S. - I haven't started the course yet, just applied.

    To do secondary teaching, you'd need to have a relevant degree in your chosen discipline, ie; History, English, Maths, etc. If you wish to go into primary teaching, then you'd need to complete a PGDE programme after your Education Studies degree.
