What was your undergraduate degree? If your undergraduate degree didn’t relate to the national curriculum, did you find it difficult to get accepted onto a PGCE course? Lots of unis say that they prefer your undergraduate degree to be related to the national curriculum which is a little worrying since I’ll be doing Japanese... Is it impossible for me to get accepted onto a PGCE primary course? :/ Thanks!

Moved to Teacher Training, Teaching and Education Jobs forum, as you are likely to get more specific responses here.

You won’t struggle. Primary languages links to the curriculum. You’re studying a language which means you will understand other language features which links to English. I work with someone who has an undergraduate degree in film production who then did a PGCE.

Sure, but Japanese isn't really a 'primary language' like French or Spanish, which is a little worrying... Hearing about your friend's success has made me feel a little less worried though. Did their PGCE relate to film production (eg secondary media PGCE or something like that) or was it a primary PGCE? Thanks for replying

Nope, PGCE Primary.

For your own knowledge - Spanish and French are not ‘primary languages’. In KS2, any modern or ancient language can be taught. I’ve seen Latin taught as well as mandarin.
