Secondary Education (International)

This course is being offered, through a collaborative partnership with the International School of Geneva. The course is composed of 3 modules, a professional module and 2 academic modules, at Master's level. The professional module consists of a set of standards linked to tasks which the students must show evidence of having successfully completed. This part of the course will be primarily school-based, centred at the Campus des Nations, but with students observing, and being on school experience, on all 3 campuses of the Foundation. Applications should be made direct to the provider.

Entry requirements

Applicants for the programmes must normally be graduates of this or another University or of the C.N.A.A., with an upper 2nd Class Honours or above (successful completion of a Master's-level PGCE will classify as above), or have other specially approved qualifications which satisfy the Admissions Sub-Committee that they are suitably qualified to undertake the programme. Teaching experience may be considered appropriate in some cases (see pathway specific specifications). However all students must normally demonstrate a personal or professional interest in the academic study of education. English Language requirements include an IELTS score of at least 7.0 (with no element under 6.0) or equivalent.
