I’m looking at applying to study Applied Criminology/ English Literature as I’m either looking to go into Criminology teaching or English teaching and they’re both subjects i love! But am I able to go into teaching with these degrees or do I need an actual teaching degree in English and/or criminology? Thank you

You would need to do a one-year PGCE (Postgrad Certificate in Education) after your degree.

Hello,

A PGCE allows you to teach in England and you can chose to do a primary or a secondary PGCE. If you choose to do a secondary PGCE (which it sounds as though you will), you choose a subject to specialise in.

Once you have completed your degree you can complete a PGCE. This can be any degree but your application will be stronger if you degree matches the subject that you would like to teach. However, you can teach a subject that you have a good A-Level in and a demonstrated passion for the subject. The qualification takes a year to complete and there is funding to support this year of study.

You could complete your degree and PGCE at different universities or the same one as it is the same as postgraduate education. You would apply for it when you are in your third year of undergraduate study.

I hope this helps!
Lydia

As mentioned above, you'll need to go on to do a PGCE. These can be done via distance learning so you can qualify from anywhere in the world or you can study on campus.
