PGCE International Geneva


The Postgraduate Certificate in Education (International) in Primary Education/Secondary Education is being offered, through a collaborative partnership with the International School of Geneva as a full-time programme for one academic year.

Places will be offered to applicants who wish to train to teach Primary or Secondary pupils in an international school context.

You can apply for this course through our Durham University postgraduate application portal.

Please note, this course is taught in Geneva and that the PGCE (International) is not awarded with QTS, English Qualified Teacher Status. However, the students will have gathered a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate that they have met a set of agreed professional standards for teaching and will also have completed experiences related to International Baccalaureate working that could make them eligible for the IBO Certificate in Teaching and Learning (IBCTL) if successfully completed. This is desirable for those who want to work in International School contexts.

Before you apply

Before you apply please contact the International School of Geneva to make sure that you have met the entry criteria and there is a subject specialist place for you.
