Program description

Primary Education (Two-year Accelerated Degree) BA

Prepare yourself to become a teacher with London Met’s accelerated degree in Primary Education. This two-year long, full honours degree equips you with the knowledge, skills and understanding to build your professional career, including access to Qualified Teacher Status.

An accelerated degree course only takes two years to complete by having three semesters instead of two. The three semesters are October to January, February to early May and May to late July.

Admission requirements

In addition to the University's standard entry requirements, you should have:

  • a minimum of three A levels with grades BBC (or a minimum of 112 UCAS points from an equivalent Level 3 qualification, eg BTEC National, OCR Diploma or Advanced Diploma)
  • GCSE English and either Mathematics or Science at grade C/4 or above (or equivalent)

If you do not hold a GCSE at grade C/4 or above in either Mathematics or science, you will need to gain this in order to be considered for a PGCE. Students graduating from the degree who hold a GCSE grade C/4 or equivalent in English and either Mathematics or science are guaranteed an interview for a PGCE or equivalent route to QTS at London Met.
