Postgraduate Certificate in Education

I’ve looked at the PGCE course at Chester Uni more for the future rather than for the next semester. I wanted to see what the entry requirements and modules were to see whether it was a viable option for me.

Information on the PGCE (Primary Education) course


  • Applications are invited from graduates with a good honours degree (normally a minimum of 2:1), or from students in the final year of their degree.
  • Neither a Higher National Diploma (HND) nor a Higher National Certificate (HNC) are acceptable as equivalent to a degree for the purpose of PGCE entry.

Extra Information:

  • At the time of application, candidates should have a minimum of GCSE grade C or above (or equivalent) in English Language, Mathematics and a Science (preferably combined).
  • Applicants must disclose any criminal record, and all successful candidates will be required to apply for and be in receipt of an enhanced Disclosure from the DBS before taking up their place.

Professional Key Skills Test:

Students applying for Initial Teacher Education courses need to be aware of Government regulations regarding mandatory skills tests in literacy and numeracy. Skills Tests must be completed before you are able to enrol on the programme. The Skills Tests do not replace the standard GCSE grade C requirements in Maths and English.
