    I was studying Economics and Italian and I dropped out in November last year, a few months into my first year. I chose the wrong degree. I was really enjoying the Italian but I found the Economics boring.

    I want to apply for a teaching degree but I think I'll only be able to do the BA (Hons) Primary Education with QTS because I don't have an A level in French (or Italian) to be able to do a Secondary level Education degree - MFL. Strictly speaking, I'm mother tongue Italian (although was studying Italian previously to perfect the grammar part of it) but there isn't much call for Italian teachers as it's not part of the MS curriculum.

    Does anyone know of any MFL teaching degrees that will take students with only an A* in a MFL at GCSE? I dropped my languages at A level to do Maths, Physics and Economics l but really don't want to teach those subjects.


    The MFL course aims to help trainee teachers build the confidence and skills needed to develop as successful teachers. You can get the MFL degrees from the following universities.
