University of Reading

Secondary Education (History)

The programme is conducted through a series of lectures, seminars and practical workshops; assignments are designed to help students plan their teaching effectively and imaginatively and to evaluate their skills, particularly in terms of the quality of learning achieved by pupils; full attention is paid to the requirements of the National Curriculum and of the various examination syllabuses; in every case the course looks to the potential for creative and critical experience revealed by such formal requirements, rather than seeing these as constraints.

Entry requirements

Honours degree in history; graduates in subjects where history is not the main component (e.g. history and politics, economics) are considered if they can provide evidence that at least 50 per cent of their degree programme was related to history; GCSE minimum grade C or equivalent in mathematics, English language and science; interview.
