PGDE Secondary Latin (Graduates only) University of Edinburgh Degree level: Undergraduate


Course options

Course summary

Applicants should have a degree in the subject to be taught, however those with a minimum of 80 credits in the relevant subject contained within their degree may also be considered. Prospective applicants with a degree unrelated to the PGDE Secondary subject that they wish to study should not apply, as they will not be considered under any circumstances.

Postgraduate qualifications in the relevant subject are only considered where there is a shortfall of credits. A maximum of 30 credits from a source other than the undergraduate degree can be considered to ‘top up’ an existing undergraduate degree in this manner.

We welcome applications from those who wish to study Latin or a dual qualification of Latin and Classical Studies.
