Making a PGCE application


You apply for PGCE programmes through the UCAS Teacher Training website. Our institution code is G56 GOLD. This includes International students.

Before you make your application, check our entrance requirements. Different PGCE programmes may have specific requirements.

When to apply

Applications open on 8 October. There's no closing date for primary or secondary applications, but we advise you to apply early to make sure your application is considered.

Once you've applied

Once we've considered your application and references, successful applicants will be invited to the next phase of the process - a group or individual interview. This will be hosted at either at Goldsmiths or in a school. At this point we will also ask to see samples of your work. 

We make our decisions based on your enthusiasm, aptitude and commitment to teaching as demonstrated by your application, qualifications, experience, reference and performance at the interview. This can be demonstrated in a number of different ways:

  • through experience of activities with young people outside school
  • evidence of continued interest in your subject
  • evidence of the ability to interact and communicate successfully with a range of people
  • evidence of the ability to organise and manage your time effectively
