Entry requirements

What are we looking for in an applicant?

The usual entry requirement for this course is an Honours degree (2:1 or above) in Theology and/or Religious Studies. Applicants with different degrees and relevant professional experience are considered, particularly if those degrees are in Philosophy or Sociology and applicants are willing to extend their subject knowledge by attending a subject knowledge booster course or completing additional modules in Theology or Religious Studies at HE level as required.

I chose Exeter for my PGCE because of its reputation and location. Getting to know your tutors and colleagues for a whole term before school placement gives you great support whilst in school. I have absolutely loved every part of it; from the first term which had a laid-back uni feel, and then the last two terms where you are stretched but rewardingly so. I'd advise anyone on the PGCE here to enjoy every minute of it; it flies by!
