Hi guys!
This summer I'm gonna get my teaching degree from my country. I'm not from the UK but I would like to stay here with a family member and work.
What would you prefer: doing a master degree in the UK or becoming a teacher (because I have that degree)?

Congratulations on getting your teaching degree! I think it depends a lot on your personal circumstances and what your future career aims are - a Masters in the UK will cost more for an international student (so finances will be a big factor), plus you may be interested in getting some practical experience first. With that in mind, I don't have a teaching background, so you should definitely have a chat to your peers or reach out to your seniors for advice.

Make sure that your teaching qualification is recognised here. You will likely still need to do QTS if you want to teach in a state maintained school (unless from an exempt nation).

I have both a masters and a UK teaching qualification and the master's was more fun but the teaching more fulfilling. I dunno what I'd pick.

Thank you! I'll need the QTS qualification here in UK if I wanna teach, but this idea is more attractive to me and I don't know if the master will worth it. Are you currently teaching? How was the QTS?

Not in a school, I'm back in a University for the time being (way better money and suits my current personal circumstances more in terms of freedom to not be in work when I need to be at home etc)

I did QTS as part of a PGCE and it was fine, no real issues at all. I think if you're an experienced teacher, the 'assessment only' route for QTS is really straightforward and shouldn't give you any issues at all

In my country I did this course for 3 years, is part of my Uni program and I chose it and my experience is for 2 semesters, I taught some hours in a school, English and French, so for this, I'll get my diploma. I'll think about the idea of assessment, even if I'm specialised in Linguistics and Literature, cause I believe they require some math and science too for that. Thank you so much!
