Could I become really or English teacher watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have a psychology degree. Is this possible?

    The title is slightly amusingly ironic :P

    If you mean an English literature teacher in a secondary school, it is theoretically possible, but pretty much won't happen. There are significantly more lit graduates that want to do English than there are places on the PGCE, so a psychology student wouldn't have a look in.

    With a psychology degree, you could do primary teaching, which would allow you to do some English literature.

    If you are interested in teaching english as a foreign language (TESOL,ESOL, EFL etc.), then you could become one through doing a CELTA/Trinity TESOL (though this would almost definitely involve moving abroad).
